Learn how to install manually the Veeam Service Provider Console managementagent on a Veeam Cloud Connect server.
Last week, Veeam released the new Veeam Service Provider Console v4, the latest version of what was previously called Veeam Availability Console. I run my own VAC (now VSPC) environment, so I decided to take the opportunity to upgrade my lab to the latest version to learn the upgrade process.
Veeam Availability Console has been designed for multiple use cases, and one of them is to manage large fleets of computers. But what about those standalone machines we have lying around? It could be the last physical server we have in the datacenter, or a laptop of a consultant that is always travelling around. How can we deal with those? I involved my family’s computers to find out.
Veeam Availability Console is completely web-based. For this reason, it’s extremely easy to consume it, and the idea behind the product is that the console can be used directly by users. To do so, the Console itself has to be published over Internet, following a few but important steps.
In the previous posts of this series, we completed the configuration of Veeam Availability Console, and onboarded our first customer. The customer logged into his own account and configured the different services. Now in this fourth part, we are going to connect a remote Veeam Backup server in order to monitor it.
