Use Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows to backup to Veeam Backup & Replication Community Edition.

Need to be on the same local network or VPN as the server.

  • Accept the license agreements and click Install
  • Skip inserting a backup target
  • Skip creating Veeam Recovery Media
  • Finish.

You can either create a backup job in the agent directly, or let the server manage it.

To allow the Veeam agent to be managed by the Veeam Backup & Replication server you need to create a policy to override the default security policy that disables access to administrative shares:

  • Click the Windows Start icon and search for “regedit”.
  • Expand the tree to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system
  • Create a new key (Right click → New → choose “DWORD Value (32bit)”).
  • Name the key “LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy” and give it the value of “1”. Click OK.
