Installing Veeam Availability Orchestrator in Unattended Mode

In this article

    You can install VAO 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 VAO installation process in large-scale environments.

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

    1. Veeam Availability Orchestrator Server Service
    2. Veeam Availability Orchestrator Web UI
    3. Veeam Availability Orchestrator REST API
