Install/update veeam and import license and config file


Recommended Posts

This will download and install or upgrade veeam and install a license if you have one, finally it will import a config file if one is available. I use Dropbox and a shared link. When using Dropbox be sure and change the zero at the end to 1 to download.

You if course would have to update the dl links. Any questions let me know. 




$workdir = "c:\installer\"

$LicenseFile = "$workdir\Veeamlicense.lic"

$ConfigFile = "$workdir\config.xml"

[Object[]]$List = @(

    New-Object -TypeName PSObject -Property @{"File" = "$workdir\Veeam2.exe"; "URL" = "https://www.dropbox.com/s/Veeamexedl=1"}

    New-Object -TypeName PSObject -Property @{"File" = $LicenseFile; "URL" = "https://www.dropbox.com/s/licensefile?dl=1"}

    New-Object -TypeName PSObject -Property @{"File" = $ConfigFile; "URL" = "https://www.dropbox.com/s/Configfiledl=1"}


$VeeamInstallDir = "C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup"

# Check if work directory exists if not create it

If (Test-Path -Path $workdir -PathType Container)

{ Write-Host "$workdir\ already exists" -ForegroundColor Red}


{ New-Item -Path $workdir -ItemType directory }

# Check if Invoke-Webrequest exists otherwise execute WebClient

$List | ForEach-Object {

    if (Get-Command 'Invoke-Webrequest') {

        Invoke-WebRequest $_.URL -OutFile $_.File


    else {

        $WebClient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient

        $webclient.DownloadFile($_.URL, $_.File)



# Start the installation

Start-Process -FilePath "$workdir\Veeam2.exe" -ArgumentList "/silent /accepteula"

# Wait XX Seconds for the installation to finish

Start-Sleep -s 45

#Stops Tray Process

Stop-Process -Name "Veeam.EndPoint.Tray" -Force -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

#Imports License File

Set-Location $VeeamInstallDir

Start-Process Veeam.Agent.Configurator.exe -ArgumentList "-license /f:'$LicenseFile'" 

Start-Process Veeam.Agent.Configurator.exe -ArgumentList "-import /f:'$ConfigFile'"

Start-Process "$VeeamInstallDir\Veeam.EndPoint.Tray.exe"
