Deployment Guide

Installing Veeam Availability Orchestrator in Unattended Mode

You can install Veeam Availability Orchestrator in the unattended mode using the command line interface. The unattended installation mode does not require user interaction — the installation runs automatically in the background, and you do not have to respond to the installation wizard prompts. You can use the unattended installation mode to automate the Veeam Availability Orchestrator installation process in large-scale environments.

In unattended mode, the VAO components must be installed in the following order:

  1. Install Veeam Availability Orchestrator Server Service.
  2. Install Veeam Availability Orchestrator Web UI.

  3. Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Management Objects
  4. Microsoft SQL Native Client 2012
  5. Local or remote Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (or later)

  • <installation media>\Server\VAO.Server.x64.msi — installation packages for installing VAO Server Service
  • <installation media>\WebUI\VAO.WebUI.x64.msi — installation package for installing VAO UI
  1. Log on to the target machine under the account that has the Local Administrator permissions on the machine. For more information, see Required Permissions.
  2. Obtain a license file. The license file is required for VAO installation. You will not be able to perform installation without providing a license.
