Prerequisites​

To monitor Veeam solutions through NSClient++ API, install the Centreon packaged version of the NSClient++ agent. Please follow our official documentation and make sure that the Webserver / RESTApi configuration is correct.

Starting with Veeam 11, the Plugin will try to find the most recent version of the VeeamPSSnapin.
