Installing Veeam Availability Orchestrator

During VAO installation, VAO server components will be installed all together on a single machine. For more information on the components, see Architecture Overview.


When installing VAO, mind the following limitations:

  • Installation of VAO on a machine already running standalone versions of Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam ONE is not supported.
  • Installation of VAO on a machine with the Domain Controller role is not supported.

To install VAO, perform the following steps:

  1. Start the setup wizard.
  2. Accept the license agreement.
  3. Choose components to install.
  4. Provide a license file.
  5. Perform system configuration check.
  6. Specify service account credentials.
  7. Choose a SQL server.
  8. Create SQL server databases.
  9. Specify service ports.
  10. Select a certificate for the VAO UI.
  11. Specify data locations.
  12. Review installation summary.
  13. Upgrade to Veeam Backup & Replication 10.
  14. [Optional] Install Veeam ONE Monitor Client on a separate machine.

Before You Begin

Before you begin installation, check the following prerequisites:

  1. Make sure the machine where VAO will be installed meets the prerequisite conditions described in section System Requirements.
  2. Download the VAO product installation VAO_3.0.iso file from the Veeam downloads page. You can burn the downloaded image file to a CD/DVD or mount the installation image to the target machine using disk image emulation software.

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
