Veeam: Backup & Recovery v7.0 – Installation

A few days ago, Veeam announced the General Availability of Veeam Backup & Recovery 7.0, which was highly anticipated for the number of features and improvements that it brings.  I’m going to do a few posts on the installation and usage of the product to get used to it myself.

1) Download the installation files from Veeam’s web site.  You’ll need to register, which will e-mail you a trial key.   The installation file comes as an ISO, so you can unpack it or mount it to your VM.  When you do, launch the SETUP.EXE

2) Click on the Install for Backup & Recovery


3) Click through the licence agreement, and then select the licence file.  The trial comes with 32 sockets.


4) Select the program features to install.  PowerShell SDK is not selected by default.


5) Veeam will identify missing pre-requisites, and install them with a single click:



6) Enter the account for the service to run with.  I’d recommend a Service Account of some sort.


7) Install the bundled MSDE SQL 2008 R2 instance.


8) Select the default ports:


9) vPower NFS is used to mount backups as an NFS datastore – and your system will need a root folder to mount this in.  You also need to select a System Catalog folder for VM’s you will be indexing the contents of – useful if you need to search for files within VM’s in your backup.


10) You’ll get a chance to review the installation summary screen and click INSTALL.


11) That’s it.  You didn’t think it was that hard, did you? 🙂  It’s Veeam – it’s that good!
