Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 2.0 Enterprise Deployment

Executive Summary

When protecting cloud workloads or physical servers, workstations and laptops require backup software running on a protected computer. Distributing software to a number of computers of different software and hardware configuration often residing in different physically or logically separate sites from a centralized location is a requirement for many IT organizations. In addition, an organization may need  more control over software deployment, for example, restrict a user’s ability to install/update/uninstall software, or limit potential impact on target machines, for example, avoid unexpected reboots.

While installing Veeam® Agent for Microsoft Windows on new machines is easily achievable by including it as part of an installation image or template as described in the User Guide, it is not often practical or possible for many existing computers or remote locations.

This guide covers installing Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows on many machines by deploying MSI or an installation executable file directly. Any software deployment platform that supports MSI can be used to deploy Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, this includes Active Directory Group Policies and Microsoft SCCM.
