Step by Step Guide Veeam B&R 9.5 Install

In a few days, Veeam should release Veeam Backup and Replication version 9.5 RTM, which contains some significant improvements such as Nimble integration, Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure, VMware vCloud Director support, Microsoft 2016 Data center Technologies and more. Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 final version should be available by mid-November 2016. You can learn more about Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 new features here.

This article provides a step by step guide to install Veeam B&R 9.5 (Veeam B&R 9.5 Install). If you need to upgrade your Veeam Backup Server (v8 or v9) you can follow this article.


Running the Installer:

Veeam B&R 9.5 Install: You have to run the installation file “Setup.exe”.

If your server will contain both Veeam B&R and Veeam Enterprise Manager, it is required that you install Veeam Enterprise Manager first. Otherwise you can click on the “Veeam Backup & Replication install” window.

Once Veeam Backup & Replication window is opened, click on “Install” button.

Click on “OK” to install .NET Framework 4.5.2.

A prompt will appear for the Service Account Credentials. It is strongly suggested adding a service account with permissions be used instead of the default domain administrator account. If the default domain admin was used, this is a great opportunity to create a new account. In my lab, I used a local administrator account. Click on “Next” button.

Veeam Wizard

By default the option “Install new instance of SQL Server” will be checked (Veeam will detect the existing database in use if the software has been already installed before). You can specify “SA” SQL account. Click on “Next” button. Note: You can follow this post if you need to install Microsft SQL Server Standard version.

Veeam Wizard

You can change the port configuration to be used by Veeam Backup & Replication. I recommand you to let the port configuration by default. Click on “Next” button.

Veeam Wizard

Then, you should specify a dedicated volume where guest file system catalog (persistent data) and vPower NFS write cache (non-persistent data) should be stored. For example you can select D: hard drive. Click on “Browse…” buttons. Finally, click on “Next” button.

Veeam Wizard

The wizard is now ready to begin the installation. Veeam will prompt to install the software, check the configuration and click “Install”.

Veeam Wizard

The install took about few minutes to complete (Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 Express then Veeam B&R 9.5.).


Veeam B&R 9.5 Install is completed, a prompt appeared to finalize the installation. Click on “Finish” button.

Post Reboot:

When the installation is done, I recommend you to restart properly the Windows server (reboot).

Once the reboot completes and Veeam B&R software has been opened via a click on Veeam Backup & Replication Console icon.

Veeam Wizard

An authentification screen will appear (console). You can fill in the fields and click on “Connect”.

Veeam Wizard

Veeam Wizard

Veeam is now ready to use. Upon opening Veeam, you can perceive the new user friendly interface. You can configure your backup infrastructure and your jobs. You can see new main menu interface:

Veeam Wizard

There is a new nice option, you can change the color of your Veeam B&R interface!




Backup & Replication Console:

Here, you can also install the standalone console on your workstation that supports connecting to remote servers. Since v9, Veeam Backup & Replication console has been broken out from the Veeam B&R server. You have to run the same installation file “Setup.exe”, click on “Backup & Replication Console” and follow the installation wizard.
