I was asked to start a new Topic by the Veeam Support Team regarding my Case # 02295395 to Report a Feature request, which is:
Why not Change the Veeam Agent for Windows Default port 6183 to anything else, e.g. 6184 or any other, which is not in use by other crucial applications like MS Exchange Server?
We had some Trouble after installing the current Agent since the Veeam-Service didn't start running after the Installation:
Code: Select all
Veeam.Backup.Common.CConnectionFailedException: [This server] Failed to connect to Installer service. ---> Veeam.Backup.Common.CConnectionFailedException: [This server] Failed to connect to Installer service. ---> System.Exception: [This server] Failed to discover Installer service. ---> System.Exception: [This server] Failed to check whether remote Installer service is available. ---> System.ApplicationException: Der RPC-Server ist nicht verf�gbar RPC function call failed.

However, editing the registry and changing system settings might be a workaround short term, but we're concerned that this might have negative consequences later on, any product update or upgrade (e.g for MS Exchange, the OS or be Veeam itself) might not handle this manipulation correctly and we could be running into problems again because of that.
And what occurred here is obviously not an individual problem related to our configuration or environment, as there are others with the same problem, see this Forum.
This problem did not occur with the previously used Veeam Endpoint Backup, so it is clearly related to the new agent, and when a service cannot be started on a new installation with a product that is said to be supported, then what we've got here is a BUG - which should be fixed by Veeam.
So, do you consider to change the default port settings (or any other change, that would result in using the default settings again) in the veeam agent with the next patch or update?
We'd appreciate that...
