Hi Eit,

Yes, that is not unexpected since for free users the support service is provided on the "best-effort" basis.

Regarding the issue, most likely, there is some issue with the MSI packages of Agents within your VBR installation or something on the target machine is preventing the packages from being deployed. Personally, I would upgrade to the latest VBR version first and take it from there.

Thanks

Is there some way to scrub the Veeam agent from the client server? I wonder if part of a previous attempted install is causing problems. Uninstalling the components seems to leave a lot of data behind in the system files and registry.

To clear out agent machine(do not try that on VBR server!), try official way of resetting the database first:
1. Stop Veeam Agent Service
2. Set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Endpoint Backup key "ReCreateDatabase" value from 0 to 1
3. Start Veeam Agent Service

If it won't help, go with cleanup:
0. Uninstall Veeam Agent for Windows via Apps\Features
1. Delete C:\ProgramData\Veeam
2. Delete C:\Program Files\Veeam
3. Delete Veeam reg keys hive HKLM\Software\Veeam\Veeam Endpoint Backup
4. Uninstall SQL LocalDB
5. Delete Veeam DB files in C:\Windows\System32\Config\Systemprofile and C:\Windows\System32\Config\Systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Local DB\Instances\VeeamEndPoint
6. Reboot for the sake of it

/Cheers!
