Veeam Plugin Deployment


This method of deploying the Veeam Plugin for VCD is best suited for vCloud Director 9.1 & 9.5 but it will work with version 9.7/10.x as well. If VCD 9.7/10.x is being used, it's highly recommended you use the VMware Plugin Lifecycle Manager as it's the easiest deployment method.

Please note that this method of deploying the plugin will make it visible to all VCD Tenants. If a Tenant's Organization is not configured in the VSSP, that Tenant will simply be unable to login to the VSSP.
