Hello,

You get this error because VeeamPSSnapIn is not registered with powershell.
Please follow the link to discover how to do this (applicable to any other component): http://technet.microsoft.com/en-au/libr ... 47601.aspx - scroll down to Example 3.

Yes, I've been there. My initial question should have been: 'Against which DLL should I register Veeam ssnapi?'

set-alias installutil $env:windir\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\installutil.exe
installutil C:\ROUTE\TO\VEEAM\DLL

The dll is:

Code: Select all

Veeam.Backup.PowerShell.dll
Actually, this registration is done by B&R installer, I'm wondering why this hasn't happened.
Or did you change anything manually, in powershell itself?

I would recommend you to run B&R setup once again and choose 'Repair' option. This should fix PS component registration.
Hope this helps!

OK, probably it was because I installed PowerShell after I installed Veeam Backup...

Thank you very much Alexey!

Yes, that is the point :) You're welcome!

Alexey, is the .dll name the same for VBR 5.0.1? Can't find the file on a W2K8 64-Bit system (where PowerCLI was also installed after VBR).

Hello Sebastian,

No changes for the name in 5.0.1.
Please take a look here: "%program files%\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Veeam.Backup.PowerShell.dll"

Thanks for the reply. The file wasn't there. Launched the setup agent again. "Modify" -> "PowerShell SnapIn" was deselected. Can't really remember that I did this during the initial setup (... OTOH I might have done so). Anyway, selected it for installation, finished the wizard and everythings working fine. Thanks again.

Hi,

is it possible to install/register the Veeam Snapin to a remote computer where I don't have Veeam software installed? My goal is to run powershell in a remote computer and execute a Veeam backup job from the remote computer. Thank you.

See my answer in the adjacent thread. Kindly, avoid posting the very same question in different topics in order not to multiple entities. Thanks.
