Veeam ONE – Install and Setup

This HOWTO will cover how to do a general installation of Veeam ONE, either for a lab or a quick proof of concept. A good use for this might be to spin up a VM, use the 30 day trial, and generate a health check against an environment. Especially useful, is to do this for 2 weeks prior to an upgrade and then the 2 weeks following, which can help identify any potential issues.

Let’s get into the process, and in a later post, we can go through some of the more useful reports.

1) Launch the installer and start the Veeam ONE Server installation

You will be asked to install MS VC++ 2010 SP1 if it is not installed:

clip_image004

Click OK to do so.

2) When the launcher starts, click NEXT:

clip_image006

And then accept the licence agreement.

3) The get the good features, you’ll want to install at least a trial key on the Provide License screen:

clip_image007

Select your licence and click NEXT.

4) Choose a Typical setup for a general installation.

Click NEXT

5) On the System Configuration Check screen you will likely not have any installed.

Click INSTALL to install the required pre-requisites. When the screen returns and shows all Passed in green, click NEXT.

6) Choose your installation path, and click NEXT

7) Enter Service Account information:

clip_image011

Click NEXT.

8) We’ll be using an SQL Express instance, so we’ll choose to install this on the local system:

clip_image012

Click NEXT.

9) We will leave all ports at the defaults:

clip_image013

Click NEXT.

10) On the Virtual Infrastructure Type screen, we can configure our vCenter server.

Click on the VMware vCenter Server option.

11) Enter you vCenter hostname and credentials:

clip_image015

Click NEXT.

12) Enter your Veeam Backup & Recovery server information and credentials:

clip_image016

Click NEXT.

13) On the Ready To Install screen, click INSTALL to action the setup:

clip_image017

14) When the installation is complete, you can press FINISH:

clip_image018

And then you need to log off:

clip_image019

15) When you login back in, click on the Veeam ONE Monitor icon to launch the application. When it launches, you’ll be prompted for SMTP server information:

clip_image020

(Which makes me ask – why isn’t this part of the Installation wizard? J). Click FINISH once you’ve entered your details and clicked SEND TEST EMAIL.

16) You can add an e-mail recipient for notifications:

clip_image021

These can be Any State, Errors Only, or Errors and Warnings. It might be wise to go with Errors Only at first. Click NEXT.

17) Next we can select an Email Frequency:

clip_image022

These can be edited if you wish, or click NEXT.

18) I do not use any SNMP Traps, so we can skip the SNMP Settings:

clip_image023

Click NEXT

19) Then we can click FINISH:

clip_image024

At this point, the installation is complete. It’s best to give the system some time to collect data, and then we can look into how use the software. It can’t hurt any to poke around and investigate the obvious items that come up to get familiar with the interface and options. In another post, I’ll review how to handle and manage specific tasks and interpret their findings.
