Deployment Scenarios

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 can be installed on a physical or virtual machine. The tool can be downloaded from the Veeam website as a ZIP archive. This archive contains two versioned MSI files - one for Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, and another for Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange.

The following deployment scenarios can be implemented:

  1. Installing two components of the product together on the same machine.
  2. Installing two components on different machines. If so, consider that you will need to use application launcher to start the component on the remote machine. For details, refer to the Starting the Program section of this guide.


  1. If you have participated in the public beta testing program for Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, be sure to uninstall the pre-release versions of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange, and delete the content of archive repository folder as well as C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup365 folder before running the setup.
  2. If you have Veeam Backup & Replication deployed in your environment, consider that to use Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange for restore of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 v1.5 backups you will need Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3 or later. Backward compatibility is not supported.

If you are going to use the program in a hybrid Exchange deployment or in the on-premises Exchange organization, and plan to use SPN and Kerberos authentication, then it is recommended to install Veeam Backup for Office 365 management server in the same domain with Exchange server and provide it with access to domain controller.
