Move VBR management server to new AD domain?

Post by BLWL » Jun 13, 2019 9:49 am

Hi,

We are moving to all our Veeam infrastructure servers to a dedicated and locked-down Active Directory.

All look good so far, but the management server is left. Thought I've seen a guide or a KB somewhere, but cannot seem to find it.

What do I need to do to re-join it to the new AD?


Thanks! :)


edit: right, VBR 9.5 U4a

Hi Bjorn, after joining the backup server to another domain, you will need to verify/change all the credentials used there. Here's another topic on a similar matter.

All accounts were local system, didn't need to change any services with my SQL running on the same VM as VBR mgmt.

Re-join and reboot and login with an admin account and I was good to go after adding an AD group to Veeam Backup Administrator.

Easy :)
