Some deployment scenarios may require that the Veeam Availability Console (VAC) agent is deployed via Windows PowerShell in the silent mode.


Use the instructions below.


The following has to be executed in Windows PowerShell (run as administrator):

Msiexec.exe /i VAC.CommunicationAgent.x64.msi /l*v C:\Temp\VAC_MA_install.log /qn VAC_MANAGEMENT_AGENT_TYPE=2 VAC_TENANT=<TenantName> VAC_TENANT_PASSWORD=<Password> CC_GATEWAY=<CloudConnectGateway> CC_GATEWAY_PORT=6180 VAC_THUMBPRINT=<Thumbprint>

User-added image

Specify the Tenant's username in VAC_TENANT=<TenantName>

Specify the Tenant's password in VAC_TENANT_PASSWORD=<Password>

Specify the the IP of the Veeam Cloud Gateway in CC_GATEWAY=<CloudConnectGateway>

By default, Veeam Cloud Gateway will use port 6180 TCP/UDP, but if you have changed this when deploying the gateway, you specify the correct port in CC_GATEWAY_PORT=6180
