Archived: Install Veeam Backup and Replication

What you’ll need

  • System requirements of the customer’s Windows server
    • System disk: 100GB
    • 16GB RAM
  • Veeam installer: You can download the newest VBR setup iso from here:
  • Veeam Rental License file
  • Firewall rule to allow port 6180 (both TCP and UDP)

Install VBR

Mount the installer and open the Setup file.


Choose Veeam Backup & Replication and click install


Accept the EULA.


Choose the license file. This will be the rental license that you got from your SP.


Choose to install every component.


Veeam is checking for existing prerequisites. If something is not installed, it will install it for you.




When everything is green, it will let you go on.

On the next window, you can choose to modify the default settings. If you tick that in, it will allow you to specify these settings. If you want to go with the default settings it is also fine, but if you have a special place for e.g. the Write cache folder (it is usually stored on an SSD), you may specify that in the customization steps.


If you chose to specify special settings, after the customization, if not, after the Default Configuration screen, you may go on with the installation by clicking Install.


The wizard will notify you when it is finished.
