Powershell snapin installation file in v9?

Veeam Logoby Cragdoo » Fri Apr 15, 2016 12:58 pm

Does anyone know where the Powershell snapin installation file(s) are now located?

In v7/v8 there were in the \backups of the installation media (as detailed here https://www.veeam.com/kb1489)

but I cannot find the them for v9

Starting from version 9, PowerShell snap-in is a part of Veeam Backup and Replication Server installation. Thanks.

Hi,
How do I install power shell snap-in on host servers? I need it to reset block tracking on one VM via powershell and I need to do it on host server. I am using version 9 thanks in advance :-)

Hi,

I assume that you want to reset CBT using the script provided in this KB is that correct? If so then my question is whether you have already tried running that script and if you have then did it error out? To my knowledge you don't need veeam ps snapin to reset CBT. Please clarify.

Thank you.

What platform are you talking about? vSphere or Hyper-V one? In the latter case, feel free to use this cmdlet. This commandlet can be executed directly from a backup server, so there is no need to install PS snap-in on a host server.

Thanks.

Hi Cragdoo
Maybe this can help you:
I downloaded the Veeam 9 install media, and just installed the "Backup & replication console" to my workstation.
This appears to also install the powershell stuff needed, as I am afterwards able to do
Add-PSSnapin VeeamPSSnapin
Connect-VBRServer -Server myveeamserver -Port 9392 -User myuser -Password mypassword

I dont know if this solves your particular issue, but all i wanted was to be able to communicate with Veeam through Powershell on my workstation :)

That's exactly what I was trying to point out. In version 9 (and subsequent ones) PS snap-in is integrated in Veeam backup console and cannot be installed independently. Thanks.

Which is inconvenient as we wanted to script a process for our Ops team to use in order to add new and remove old servers from backup schedules without giving them access to the console or giving them admin rights into the console in order to perform the actions since there does not seem to be a way to just allow those two functions without it.

The reason for this is that our Ops team has handled this particular duty for a decade now and the desire it to keep process and duties as they are. So being able to install the Veeam PS module as a stand alone component would have resolved that.

So there are some cases where a stand alone install is desired, Any chance this can get re-visited?
