Hi baber,

Veeam B&R allows you to manage repository access via agent’s permissions, monitor agent jobs (and disable them when required), leverage global email notification and throttling features. Additionally, it allows to use Backup Copy and Backup to Tape jobs for agent backup stored in the repository. Lastly you get all the recovery options via B&R console like file level recovery or export as virtual disk.

The integration allows you to perform restores via the VBR console as well. Furthermore you can convert the backups to a VMDK or VHD(X) file and turn the physical server into a VM.

Later this year we'll have the Veeam Availability Console available which will allow you to deploy agents more easy (https://www.veeam.com/managed-backup-po ... -text-link). How do you currently deploy software to all these physical servers? You can also use automation tools like Chef, Ansible or Puppet. If you are using puppet have a look at the following module: https://github.com/nielsengelen/val-puppet

so thanks
but install veeam agent from a managment console on all of physical server is important that now veeam can not do this and the other for start get backup from physical server have to connect direct to server and run job . can not run job via managment console

can do these with install a plugin on veeam ?

For now you can use automation tools like Puppet or Ansible. May I ask how you deploy software now to all these servers?

There is no plugin which does this for now but your feedback is noted.

untill now just install that on one of physical server this is so hard and the other problem is we have to run backup job directly from the server and can not run job from veeam backup and replication managment console and can not select what kind of backup get from server

A tighter integration between VAL and VBR (including job control) is already planned to be added later.

Thank you for you feedback!

You can schedule your jobs also via the agent (using crontab) so they run every day.
