The setup will install Veeam MP components and import Veeam management packs to the Management Server.

When installation completes, perform the logoff/logon procedure to create the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Users local group that will be used to accommodate service account. Also add any other accounts to this group for users who will need to access the Veeam UI to configure VMware monitoring.

noteNote

Keep in mind that MP deployment continues even after all Management Packs are imported: reports are deployed to the Ops Mgr reporting server; SQL Server stored procedures required for widgets are deployed in the background.

This process might take several hours depending on the Ops Mgr infrastructure performance. During this period, some widgets may not function, and reports may not be visible in the Ops Mgr console.
