Upgrade Veeam nWorks to version 5.7


What do you need?

  • SCOM 2007 R2 or higher of course 🙂
  • The nworks 5.7 installer.
  • An already working nworks 5.6 environment.
  • Your SQL collation settings for SCOM should be SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS. If not, the reports won’t be pushed to the report server.
  • Also, SQL Reporting Server 2008 or higher is recommended.

How to install?

First, start the nworks EMS installer. As always, I am starting the installer from a command prompt with administrative privileges.



Setup is detecting that a previous version of nworks was installed. Click on yes:



Click on next:



Click on I accept and next:



Here you need to enter the path to the converted license file. Contact Veeam to convert your orginal license file to a license file for the new version. Click on next:



Enter the path where you want to install veeam:



Enter the TCP port that will be used to access the nWorks Enterprise Manager. The standard port is 8084:



Enter the credentials for the service account and click on next:



Click on Install:



Click on finish:



Click on logoff en logon again to upgrade the last components. This is needed to update group membership for the logged on user account:



Now start the nworks UI update, of course from a command prompt with administrative privileges:



Click on yes:



Click on next:



Click on I accept and on yes:



Click on next:



Enter the details of the enterprise manager we just installed and click on next:



Enter the tcp port for the WebUI, here left default, and click on next:

Click on finish:



Now start the nworksVIC installer from a command prompt with administrative privileges:



Click on Yes:



Click on next:



Click on I accept and next:



Enter the path where you want to install the software and click on next:



Enter the details of the enterprise management server we installed earlier:


Enter the details of the service accounts:



Click on Install:



Click on finish:



Import the new management pack. Open the System Center Operations Manager 2007 console with OpsMgr administrator credentials. Navigate to administration => management packs:



Right-click management packs and select Import Management Packs…:



Click on add from disk:



You can select no because all dependencies should already be met:



Select the management pack:



Click on Install:



Now click on close:



To check that the installation went fine, op en the nwoks enterprise manager (on the server you just installed it on):



Log in with credentials with enough rights:



Ensure everything is ok:



Now return to the SCOM console and go to monitoring => nworks Vmware\_Enterprise Manager Dashboard
Select the collectors in the collector state view.



Click on the “Configure OpsMgr agent” task:



Click on run:



This should be it!

  1. BTW, SQL & SSRS 2005 are supported as well.

      Indeed. Though generally speaking I would always recommend SQL & SRS 2008: it’s faster and there are a lot of novelties regarding SRS 2008. For a fact, the latest Windows MP reports don’t even work on SRS 2005.
