Alternatively, you can add this license key later through the Veeam Backup & Replication console to unlock all your license features. Until then, Veeam will run in Free Edition mode.

Further on, the Veeam installation process will determine if there are any necessary packages missing on your intended backup server. If there are any, it will deploy them once you hit the additional Install button.

You can keep the default installation option, such as the ports, installation paths and SQL server. If you don’t have any SQL instance pre-installed, Veeam will deploy a Microsoft SQL 2012 SP3 Express Edition version for you that should be enough for environments of up to 500 VMs. The Express version also has a database size limit of 10 GB.

If your environment requires specific ports or paths, you will be able to change them via the Let me specify different settings checkbox.
