Vitaliy I know, that automatic configuration deployment is not available, but I want to find a workaround.

Just want to add my vote for being able to automate the VEB configuration process. :)

I test solution with parsing registry and put data through SqlLocalDB.exe.

Bad news.
Set email settings directly to SQL LocalDB for VeeamEndpointBackup is impossible. Table dbo.Credentials contains password field, but it stored in encrypted form. Same passwords on different computers are various. There is now way to find encrypting algorithm. Attempt to set encrypted password string from other computer failed. May be use SMTP-server without authentication will be work, but it is unacceptable for me. Perhaps, later I am back to work on the task.

UPD. Empy password also encrypted with various salt ("change_time_utc field"?) =((

Mikhail,

Told you. We do not have any supported or even non-supported hints on 'how to centrally distribute configurations' now.

I created an autoit script to automate the configuration. Not my first choice, but it works. I run it as part of my MDT task sequence.

randres,

Can you share source code for your AutoIT script?

This autoit looks like a tool that can interact with UI in automated mode. Might be a possible workaround indeed.

Sorry, I didn't see any replies to the thread. Here is my script. It uses all keyboard commands, as I couldn't get mouse clicks to work properly. This uses a Veeam repository, so if you want to use a shared drive instead, you'll need to modify the script.

Code: Select all
#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 AutoIt Version: 3.3.14.2
 Author:         Ryan Andres

 Script Function: Configure Veeam Endpoint Backup
Template AutoIt script.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start - Add your code below here
If Not FileExists(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.EndPoint.Backup.exe") Then
Exit
Else
Run (@ProgramFilesDir & "\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.EndPoint.Backup.exe")
WinWaitActive ("Configure Backup")
Send ("!b") ;File Level Backup
Send ("!n") ;Next
Sleep (500)
Send ("{RIGHT}")
Send ("u") ;Users
Send ("{SPACE}") ;Select Users
Send ("!n") ;Next
Sleep (500)
Send ("!v") ;Veeam Repository
Send ("!n") ;Next
Sleep (500)
Send ("server") ;Server
Send ("{TAB}")
Send ("{SPACE}") ;Provide Credentials
Send ("{TAB}")
Send ("username") ;Credentials
Send ("{TAB}")
Send ("password") ;Credentials
Send ("!n") ;Next
Sleep (10000)
Send ("{DOWN}") ;Select Veeam Repository
Send ("!n") ;Next
Sleep (500)
Send ("!k") ;Lock
Send ("!t") ;When backup target connected
Send ("!c") ;Next
Sleep (10000)
Send ("!f") ;Finish
EndIf

Ryan,

As yosemity pointed in another community this workaround might be challenging, if your computer has a UAC enabled. So it seems that you have to allow this application (and script) to bypass the UAC somehow, which might be challenging.

i convert the script to an executable and then import that executable as an application into MDT. Once there, I run that application as a step in my MDT deployment, as those steps run as administrator and bypass UAC. If you run the script after the fact, you'll get a UAC prompt, which will have to be answered first. I haven't found a way to work around that, but it seems to work fine with MDT.
