Adding Servers to Scope

The figure below shows solution components' interactions in the evaluation lab:

As you can see, Virtual Infrastructure servers communicate with both Veeam ONE server and Veeam backup server, thus, they should be added to both Veeam ONE scope and Veeam Backup & Replication scope.

Veeam Backup & Replication metrics, events, configuration and topology are collected by Veeam ONE server, thus, Veeam backup server should be added to Veeam ONE scope.


Do the following:

1.Use Veeam Backup & Replication console to add a VMware server (vCenter or ESX host) and/or a Hyper-V server to Veeam Backup & Replication scope as managed servers.
For details, please refer to the corresponding section of Veeam Backup & Replication Help ( and



Consider that some evaluation cases are applicable to VMware environment only.

2.Open Veeam ONE Monitor web console and click Add Server on the toolbar to start Add Server Wizard:


3.With this wizard, you should add both Veeam backup server and Virtual Infrastructure servers (VMware vCenter, ESX host, or a Hyper-V server) that were added to Veeam Backup & Replication scope at step 1.



You should be adding exactly the same Virtual Infrastructure servers to both Veeam Backup and Veeam ONE scope, using the same naming (either domain name or  IP address). Otherwise, creation of some reports may fail.

For details on using the wizard, please refer to Connecting Backup Servers to Monitor, Connecting VMware Servers to Monitor, and Connecting Hyper-V Servers to Monitor.



Veeam ONE can be used in the environments with more than one Veeam Backup & Replication servers installed. In this case, a common scenario involves deploying Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager – to facilitate centralized job management, on-going statistics analysis, license management, delegated restore, and other operations. For this deployment scenario, consider adding Enterprise Manager server to Veeam ONE monitoring and reporting scope. It will become a single source of data for all backup servers, and you will not need to connect several backup instances to Veeam ONE console manually.
However, to avoid duplicated data, you should only be adding either Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager server or Veeam Backup server (not both).
