  1. Go into the SureBackup job and under Linked Jobs, select the VM you want to run the test script on and select Edit.
  2. Click Test Scripts
  3. Click Edit
  4. Name the script, click Browse.
  5. Pick c:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication(\Backup in version 8)\Veeam.Backup.ConnectionTester.exe
From here, you can type %vm_ip% to refer to the VM by IP address and type %vm_ip% <port_number> to test a VM on a specific port.
