Virtual Appliance Mode on 2 hosts

Post by AlanP »

One of my sites has two hosts, but no SAN. I was looking at using the API. Would I need Veeam on a machine on each of my hosts for this to work correctly?

(sorry I didnt know this site exsited and have lots of questions :) )

Hello Alan,

To be able to use vStorage API Virtual Appliance mode you just need to install Veeam Backup and Replication server on a VM. You do need to have separate installations for each of the host.

Thank you!

Alan, note that while you will need separate install for each host to be able to use Virtual Appliance mode without shared storage, you can use Veeam Backup Enteprise Manager component to have consolidated view and manage both Veeam Backup installations centrally via web UI. This will make management more convenient for you.

Welcome to our forums and no worries - you can ask as many questions as you like here (given you use Search first, hehe) :D
