Installing Veeam Recovery Orchestrator in Unattended Mode

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

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

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

Before You Begin

Before you start unattended installation, perform the following steps:

  1. Pre-install the following components on the target machine:
  1. Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2022 Redistributable (x64)
  2. Microsoft System CLR Types for SQL Server 2014
  3. Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Management Objects
  4. Local or remote Microsoft SQL Server 2017 (or later)
  5. Microsoft PowerShell 5.1
  6. Veeam Backup & Replication 12

For more information on how to install Veeam Backup & Replication in the unattended mode, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

  1. Veeam ONE 12

For more information on how to install Veeam ONE in the unattended mode, see the Veeam ONE Deployment Guide.

  1. Download the product installation file VeeamDataPlatform_23H2_[date].iso 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.
  2. Browse the .ISO contents — the files that you will need for installation will be located in the following folders:
  • <installation media>\Server\VAO.Server.x64.msi — the installation package for installing the Veeam Orchestrator Server Service
  • <installation media>\WebUI\VAO.WebUI.x64.msi — the installation package for installing Veeam Orchestrator Web UI
  1. Log on to the target machine under the account that has the local Administrator permissions on the machine. For more information, see Permissions.
  2. Obtain a license file. The license file is required for Orchestrator installation. You will not be able to perform installation without providing a license.
