Creating a new Physical Protection Infrastructure group in VBR v11

Over the weekend, I decided to stand up a Windows DC (Domain Controller), install Veeam Backup & Replication (GA build and test the concept of creating a new Physical Protection Infrastructure group in the v11 console.  

Windows Domain Controller:

Windows 10 client:

Veeam Backup & Replication (GA build was used for this demo:

Once VBR v11 was installed, I proceeded to create a Veeam Protection Group in the console.

  • Select Inventory from the list of options to choose from in the lower left-hand corner.
  • Select Create Protection Group.
  • Assign a name for the Protection Group.
  • Please select the Microsoft Active Directory Objects option and then Next.
  • Please select Add at the Active Directory window.
  • Navigate to the Microsoft Active Directory domain you’d like to add and then select OK.
  • Select Next to proceed.
  • If there are no objects to exclude, please select Next.
  • Select Add to specify the domain account to be used for all the hosts in this protection group and then select Next.
  • Specify any options you desire at the Options window and then select Next.
  • Review the settings and then select Apply.
  • Once the installation and configuration are complete, please select Next.
  • Select Finish to complete the wizard.
  • The Agent Discovery session will begin. Please select Close once it is complete.
  • The new Physical Infrastructure Protection group in the v11 console is found below.
