Veeam Installation Guide for v10 Beta 1

One of the many advantages to being a Veeam Vanguard is having access to products before they are released to the general public. The following guide was created for the purpose of documenting my first attempt at installing Veeam Backup and Replication v10 Beta 1 in my home lab environment. This was a clean installation and NOT an upgrade from my previous installation of VBR (v9.5), which is still running in a separate lab environment.

To begin the process, you must first download the ISO, mount the image, and then start the installation with the setup file.

In order to take full advantage of the application without any restrictions, the license key must be applied. As noted, the software can operate in Community Edition mode w\o the license key but will have its limitations.

I then proceeded with the default installation but I was required to install missing features because it didn’t meet the minimum requirements but that was accomplished by clicking Install and then the installation proceeded without any issues.

The progress then moves forward and installs MS SQL Server 2016 SP1 Express, Veeam Backup Catalog, Veeam Backup & Replication Server, Veeam Backup & Replication Console, Veeam Agent for MS Windows Redistributable, and the Veeam Services start.

Below is confirmation the installation was a success.

Overall, the installation was straightforward and at least to me, took less steps to install when compared to version 9.5. Looking ahead, future blog posts will detail navigating through the console, create the various jobs (backup and replication) and so much more.

Thank you to everyone at Veeam, the Veaam Vanguard Program and the #vCommunity for your support, you know how much I appreciate it and none of this is possible without you.

If I have missed anything or if you have any suggestions, please let me know. If you’re interested in anything related to Veeam on my blog, search keyword ‘Veeam’. Thanks for your time!
