Inspector Setup Preparation


Admin User Required

The Veeam Availability Console requires an administrative username and password for Liongard to use. Currently there is not a less privileged way to use the API.

Liongard Inspector Setup

Step 1: Parent Inspector Setup

Since Veeam is a multi-tenant system where a single portal is used to manage many Environments, you will set up a single "Parent" Inspector with the API Key that will then auto-discover "Child" Inspectors for each Environment.

In Liongard, navigate to Admin > Inspectors > Inspector Types > Navigate to the Veeam Inspector > Add System.

Fill in the following information:

  • Type of Inspector: Parent
  • Environment: Select your MSP's Environment
  • Friendly Name: Suggested Naming: [MSP Name] Veeam Parent
  • Agent: Select the On-premises Agent installed for this Environment
  • Inspector Version: Latest
  • API Hostname: The DNS name or IP address of the machine on which Veeam Availability Console Web UI is installed.
  • API Port: The REST API port number you specified during Veeam Availability Console Web UI installation.
  • Administrator Username: The Administrator Username for your Veeam Availability Console.
    *Defaults to vac\administrator.
  • Administrator Password: The Administrator Password for your Veeam Availability Console.
  • Scheduling: The Inspector will default to run once a day at the time the Inspector is set up. Here you can adjust the schedule

Select Save. The Inspector will now be triggered to run within the minute.

Step 2: Child Inspector Setup

After the first run of the Parent Inspector, your client Veeam Availability Console organizations will be Auto-Discovered in the Discovered Systems tab on the Inspectors > Veeam page.

Navigate to the Discovered Systems tab in your Inspectors > Veeam page

  • Activate or Archive your Discovered Systems by ensuring that they're mapped to the correct Environment > Check the checkbox to the left of Inspector(s) > Select the Actions drop down menu > Activate Launchpoints

Optional: Turn on Flexible Asset/Configuration Auto-Updating

If you would like this Inspector's data to be sent to ConnectWise and/or IT Glue, turn on Flexible Assets/Configurations for this Inspector:

  • ConnectWise: Admin > Integrations > ConnectWise > Configuration Types > Confirm the "Configuration Auto-Updating" toggle is enabled
  • IT Glue: Admin > Integrations > IT Glue > Flexible Assets > Confirm the "Flexible Asset Auto-Updating" toggle is enabled
