infrastructure deployment (Managed Server + Proxy)

Veeam Logoby HannesK » Tue Mar 08, 2016 11:34 am 3 people like this post

Hello,
I created some scripts to deploy Veeam infrastructure components.

I created three scripts (maybe I create more if I have time) that should be used as as described:
1) 1_check_host_smb_connection.ps1 - this is a prerequisite script that checks whether the hosts are available
2) 2_add_windows_host_to_managed_servers.ps1 - add Windows hosts do VBR
3) 3_add_proxy_role.ps1 - deploys proxy role

Input is provided via a csv file like this:

Code: Select all
Win2012R2-0001,location1
Win2012R2-0002,location2
Win2008R2-0001,location1
SRV-phy1,location3



I use the description field do allow easy sorting by location as shown in the screenshot
