Challenge

The article describes which Veeam Backup & Replication components can be installed on Windows Storage Server OS platform.

Cause

Windows Storage Server and Windows Server are built on the same code base, therefore all Veeam Backup & Replication components can be installed on a machine running Storage Server OS, i.e.

  • Backup repository
  • Backup proxy
  • Tape server
  • Mount server
  • WAN accelerator
However, some vendor based distributions may not have .NET feature enabled and/or have issues with installing the required .NET framework version. Hence Veeam backup server itself can not be installed on a such machine due to its dependency on .NET components.

Solution

In regards to missed .NET components please review the End User License Agreement (EULA) for Windows Storage Server found in C:\windows\system32\license.rtf and contact your storage vendor for additional information.
