Veeam VCenter plugin confusion ?

Post by albertwt » Apr 19, 2016 12:18 am

Hi People,

What does this Veeam VCenter plugin does ?

Image

I wonder if I click on install, it would cause downtime or issue on either to Vcenter server service or Veeam service during the business hours ?

if anyone know what it does and what's the benefits in installing the plugins, please share it here.

Thanks.

Check the plugin general description and ask additional questions, if needed. Thanks.

Hi Vladimir,

Does it cause any outage in VCenter or Veeam Backup service during the installation ?

Web plugin installation should not cause any vCenter outage. Though, if I were you, I'd still install it outside of working hours. Thanks.

Yes, that's correct. Plug-in installation is done via public APIs of the vSphere (everything is orchestrated by the vCenter Server itself), so no service interruption is expected.
