Deploying Endpoint Backup with config

Veeam Logoby FabianSch » Thu Oct 22, 2015 7:50 am

Hello,

im new to veeam because we recently switched from EMC Networker to veeam.
We've got 3 ESX Servers in our environment which we backup with veeam Essentials.

Now we also want to backup the notebooks and desktop clients (~100 Clients) with veeam Endpoint Backup.
Is it possible to deploy the installation WITH configuration, so we dont have to do the configuration on each client manually ?

Thanks
Fabian

Will it be a planned feature for future versions ?

Where does VEB store its configuration on the client ?
Registry, Windows file?

Thanks

All settings are stored in the SQL database. Yes, we are monitoring the feedback coming for Veeam Endpoint Backup product.

[MERGED] Feature? MASS Company Distribution/Configuration?

Veeam Logoby brandon.patton » Mon Oct 26, 2015 5:59 pm 1 person likes this post

Hi all,

Sorry if this has been posted somewhere else - having trouble finding if it is.

We are a company of all laptop users - and we're currently using Druva InSync as our backup solution (company-wide deduplication to central server). I would love to utilize VEB and have each device point to our B&R server. However, I can't seem to locate a way to automate the distribution to everyone's machines - whether through .reg settings or preferably, MSI arguement silent installation.

My goal would be to silently install and configure the device with it's policies and credentials for accessing the repository, along with controlling what gets backed up and how often. Basically use VEB as a full backup solution for our traveling backup users.

Has anyone done something similar?

Hi,

There are options to perform unattended installation and create custom Windows system image. Also you may want look at command line to perform backups. There is also an option to do an auto-configuration

I hope that helps.

Thank you.

We have the same problem. We use a software distribution system and I wan't to send a ready to use version to our devices. The users using the pcs are no administrators, so they are not able to configure the backup. I wan't them to use our Veeam Backup & Replication v8 server.

@PTide: the solutions you told does not fit in this scenario. Thanks anyway

JKarl, in the same boat and I agree, the solution from PTide unfortunately doesn't work for us.

In an ideal situation, I would love to be able to pass arguements via the unattended installation to install the software, input the credentials, and effectively have it just show up on the users machine and begin backup. Maybe allowing a method of 'policies' so VEB checks in with VBR to know what it's configuration should be, including what to and not to backup. That's a pie in the sky scenario.

I understand VEB was really meant to fill the gap regarding physical servers - but we some refining, this could definitely be a power 'user' enterprise endpoint solution.

I totally agree with you. Using a Veeam Backup & Replication Server for company features like this would also be a great option.
I tried to find the settings for the VEB and found a sql database. It's fully readable when I attach it to a sql server 2012. I'll post an update if I find a easy solution for deploying the backupjob.

[MERGED]: CMD Deploy, Config and Execute...

Veeam Logoby billou81 » Mon Dec 07, 2015 2:29 pm

Hi,

I'am currently testing Veeam EndPoint Backup, and it work very well...

In CMD Mode :
Deployment = OK
Configuration = BAD
Execution = OK

In the future I want to configure it automaticly.

Exemple, Auto set : (CMD, Registry or SQL request...)
- path SMB (I have lot of site.) and the credential user and password.
- number of restore point.
- peridically

Do you have doc for this or idea ?

Thank you

Guillaume, for how many Endpoints would you like to push the configuration? Is this for internal usage or you would like to provide backup as a service to your clients?
