Installation of Acronis Management Server

This article applies to:

  • Acronis Backup Advanced for vCloud




  1. On the machine where you are going to install Acronis Management Server, log on as an administrator.
  2. Start the Acronis Backup Advanced setup program.
  3. Click Install Acronis Backup.
  4. Accept the terms of the license agreement.
  5. Select the Centrally monitor and configure backing up of physical and virtual machines check box.
  6. Provide the license for Acronis Backup Advanced for vCloud. Type all your license keys or import them from a text file.
  7. Choose whether the machine will participate in the Acronis Customer Experience Program (CEP).
  8. Click Install to proceed with installation.
  9. On successful installation, click Finish to close the wizard window.
  10. Copy the script enable_remote_sql_access.js that is distributed with the product, to the management server machine.

    The script configures the SQL Server instance to be accessible to Agent for vCloud. It creates a new SQL Server account that Agent for vCloud will use, configures the instance to listen to a static port, and configures Windows Firewall to allow connections through that port.

  11. Run the script in the following format:

    cscript enable_remote_sql_access.js <new-user-name> <new-password> [-p <port>]

    <new-user-name>, <new-password> are the user name and password for the new account.
    -p <port> is an optional parameter that enables you to specify the port to use.

    For example:
    C:\>cscript enable_remote_sql_access.js User 123 -p 3322

    If you do not specify the port, it will be chosen automatically. Examine the port number that was chosen by the script:
    Port 1433 is picked

    (!) Remember the credentials and the port number. You will be asked for them when configuring Agent for vCloud.
