Veeam Agent for Windows (VAW)

Veeam Availability Console (VAC)

-This occurred on upgrade, and required uninstalling the VAC Communication Agent, and reinstalling it manually from elevated cmd prompt:

msiexec.exe /i VAC.CommunicationAgent.x64.msi VAC_MANAGEMENT_AGENT_TYPE=3 VAC_CC_COMMUNICATION_PORT=9999 VAC_SERVER_NAME=VACserver VAC_CONNECTION_ACCOUNT=m\administrator VAC_CONNECTION_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD=123qweASD /l*v C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Setup\Temp\AgentSetupmsi.txt

MSI location C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Veeam Availability Console or C:\Program Files\Veeam\Availability Console\ApplicationServer\AgentPackage

VAC_SERVER_NAME= This needs to be the IP address, or FQDN of the VAC server.

VAC_CONNECTION_ACCOUNT= This will be an account is authorized to connect to VAC (I believe this is local administrator, or Backup Operators groups)

VAC_CONNECTION_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD= This will be the password to the above account, the password will only be plain text in the cmd prompt.

/l*v path: This enable verbose logging to the specified path.
