Veeam Blog Post – Deploying Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 UR3 with PowerShell

 

Hey Checkyourlogs fans,

In this blog post I will show you how you can deploy Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 with Update Rollup 3 to a Hyper-V Virtual Machine. This is a really handy little script because it can help you get Veeam going in your lab in a snap. The basic steps to accomplish this are as follows:

 

  1. Create a Hyper-V Virtual Machine running Windows Server 2016. In my case I have created a VM called Management01.

  2. Next you will need to download a copy of Veeam Backup and Replication from https://www.veeam.com/downloads.html

     

  3. Next you need to request a trial product key.

     

  4. In our case we have stored both files in F:\Temp1

     

  5. Next grab a copy of the PowerShell script from my GITHub Repository. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dkawula/Operations/master/Veeam/Install-Veeam-HyperV.ps1 and save it to f:\Temp1

     

  6. Open an Administrative PowerShell Prompt and change the path to f:\temp1. Then type .\Import-Module .\Install-Veeam-HyperV.PS1 -Force -Verbose and press Enter. This will load the Install-Veeam Module which we will use to deploy Veeam to our lab.

     

  7. Next type Install-Veeam -VMName Management01 -GuestOSName -Management01 -VMPath f:\dcbuild_test and press enter.

     

  8. On the Please Select the Veeam 9.5 UR3 ISO window browse to f:\temp1\VeeamBackup&Replication_9.5.0.1535.Update3.Iso

     

  9. On the Please Select the Veeam License File window browse to f:\temp1\Veeam_Backup_nfr_0_12.lic. In my case I used my Veeam Vanguard Veeam NFR License.

     

  10. Next input the credentials for your lab. In my case I will install using my Domain Administrator Account MVPDays\Administrator. We will pipe this into the VM using PowerShell direct with the $DomainCred variable.

     

  11. At this point it is time to sit back and relax as the next steps will happen automatically:

     

    1. Adding a New VHDx file from the Host
    2. Formatting the New VHDx file and giving it a volume label of Veeam
    3. Mounting the VHDx to the Host
    4. Copying the Veeam ISO specified earlier
    5. Copying the Veeam License file specified earlier
    6. Installs 2012 System CLR Types
    7. Installs SQL Express
    8. Installs the Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 Server
    9. Installs the Veeam Backup Console
    10. Installs the Explorer for Active Directory
    11. Installs the Explorer for Exchange
    12. Installs the Explorer for SQL
    13. Installs the Explorer for Oracle
    14. Installs the Explorer for SharePoint
    15. Installs the Enterprise Manager web and Cloud Portal
    16. Finally updates to Rollup 3

  12. Your finished product will look just like this:

    .Synopsis
    Deploys Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 + UR3 to a Hyper-V Lab VM
    .DESCRIPTION
    This Script was part of my BIGDemo series and I have broken it out into a standalone function

    You will need to have a Veeam Service Account Pre-Created, Veeam B&R ISO and Product Key for this lab to work
    The Script will prompt for the path of the ISO and .LIC files
    The Script will prompt for an Admin Account which will be used in $DomainCred
    If your File names are different than mine adjust accordingly.

    We will use PowerShell Direct to setup the Veeam Server in Hyper-V

    The Source Hyper-V Virtual Machine needs to be Windows Server 2016

    .EXAMPLE
    TODO: Dave, add something more meaningful in here
    .PARAMETER WorkingDir
    Transactional directory for files to be staged and written
    .PARAMETER VMname
    The name of the Virtual Machine
    .PARAMETER VMPath
    The Path to the VM Working Folder - We create a new VHDx for the Veeam Install
    .PARAMETER GuestOSName
    Name of the Guest Operating System Name
    

    Usage: Install-Veeam -Vmname YOURVM -GuestOS VEEAMSERVER -VMpath f:\VMs\Veeam -WorkingDir f:\Temp
#>
