Configuring Windows Remote Management (WinRM):

  1. If not already done so, install PowerShell 2.0 and WinRM on the SAM and target servers. Powershell 2.0 can be found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968930.
  2. On the SAM server, open a command prompt as an Administrator. To do this, perform the following step:
  • Go to the Start menu and right-click the cmd.exe and then select Run as Administrator.
  1. Enter the following in the command prompt:
           winrm quickconfig
            winrm set winrm/config/client @{TrustedHosts="*"}
  2. On the target server, open a command prompt as an Administrator and enter the following:
           winrm quickconfig
            winrm set winrm/config/client @{TrustedHosts="IP_ADDRESS"}

   where IP address is the IP address of your SAM server.

  • I did try, but it tells me:

    'Veeam Backup & Replication Powershell SDK requires Veeam Backup & Replication 8.0 to be installed on the machine'

    Which is obviously isn't

  • Have you installed the Veeam PowerShell snapin on the Orion server or polling engine managing this node? http://www.veeam.com/kb1489

  • Will this work with version 8 guys?

    looking like no - error if anyone wants it:

    Output: ==============================================

    Message: Cannot load Windows PowerShell snap-in VeeamPSSnapIn because of the following error: Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Veeam.Backup.PowerShell.dll' or one of its dependencies. This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded.

  • Ah awesome, thought it may have been something like this.

    Thank you aLTeReGo. emoticons_happy.png
