You can install Veeam Endpoint Backup 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 Endpoint Backup installation process in large-scale environments.
During the product installation, Veeam Endpoint Backup automatically sets up the following required prerequisite components:
- Microsoft SQL Server System CLR Types for SQL Server 2012
- Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Management Objects
- Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express LocalDB Edition
Veeam Endpoint Backup will also set up Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 if it does not detect this component on the computer during the product installation.
In some cases, installation of prerequisite software requires computer reboot. This can happen, for example, if you have an earlier version of a prerequisite component installed on the computer and during the installation process this component is used by third-party software.
In this situation, unattended setup will install Veeam Endpoint Backup but will not start the Veeam Endpoint Backup service. After you reboot the computer, the Veeam Endpoint Backup service will be started and Veeam Endpoint Backup will be fully functioning.
To install Veeam Endpoint Backup in the unattended mode, use a command with the following syntax:
where <path_to_exe> is a path to the Veeam Endpoint Backup installation file.
