Van toepassing op: Windows Server 2012

Installation of the Windows Azure Online Backup is a two-part process. It requires that you sign up for a subscription to the service and then install the management software (Windows Azure Online Backup Agent) that supports Windows Azure Online Backup. This scenario describes the process of signing up for a Windows Azure Online Backup account and installing the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent.

In this document

Installing the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent requires the following:

  • Windows Identity Framework

  • Microsoft Online Services Sign-in Assistant

  • Windows PowerShell

  1. Navigate to the Online Services Customer Portal and sign in using your user ID. If you do not have a user ID, you can create one from this site.

  2. Choose Windows Azure Online Backup from the list of available services.

  3. Complete the sign up form.

  4. Create the administrative user ID and password for the service. This user ID and password will be required to modify your subscription or to view information about all of the servers registered. When you are specifying the settings for the user ID, make sure to choose the Global administrator as the role. Other roles are not supported by Windows Azure Online Backup; attempting to use a user ID with a different role will result in an error informing you that the account does not have permission to use the service.

For more information, see What is my user ID and why do I need it?.

The Windows Azure Online Backup Agent is an add-on for Windows Server 2012. There is also an extension for customers that are running Small Business Server that is installed separately. The Windows Azure Online Backup Agent provides the MMC snap-in user interface to use when scheduling backups and recovering content. It also installs the online backup cmdlets for Windows PowerShell.

  1. Go to the Microsoft Online Services Customer Portal site.

  2. Sign in using your administrative user ID and password created in the previous procedure.

  3. The Windows Azure Online Backup portal page is displayed.

  4. Click the link to the download location for the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent.

  5. Download the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent. Take note of the location where you downloaded the OBSInstaller.exe file and then continue on to the next step.

If the prerequisite software listed previously is not already installed on your server, it will be installed and enabled as part of the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent installation. In addition, the server on which you install the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent should have at least 2.5 GB of local free storage space for cache location, although 15 GB of free local storage space to be used for the cache location is recommended.

To install the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent, run the installer, OBSInstaller.exe. The installer does not require a reboot for the installation to complete in most cases. Administrative permissions are required to install Windows Azure Online Backup Agent. If you will be installing Windows Azure Online Backup Agent on multiple servers, you can place the installer file on a shared network location, or you can use Group Policy or management products such as Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager to perform the installation.

noteOpmerking
Using Windows Azure Online Backup does not require that you install Windows Server Backup. However, the two backup methods complement each other. Windows Server Backup can perform tasks such as bare metal and system state restores, which are not available by using Windows Azure Online Backup.

To complete the installation by using the command-line interface, see the Command line installation section.

  1. Sign in to your server using a local computer administrator account, and then run OBSInstaller.exe.

  2. The Supplemental Notice for the Service is displayed. Click I accept the service agreement terms and conditions, and then click OK to continue the installation.

  3. The Prerequisites Check page is displayed and any missing prerequisite software is selected for installation. Click Next to approve the installation of the prerequisite software and continue the installation.

  4. The Installation Settings page is displayed. On this page, you choose the Installation Folder and Cache Location for Windows Azure Online Backup. By default the installation folder will be <system drive>:\Program Files\Windows Azure Online Backup Agent. If you click Browse you can navigate and choose a new location in which to create the Windows Azure Online Backup folder.

    By default the cache location folder will be <system drive>:\Program Files\Windows Azure Online Backup Agent. In the cache location, the installation process will create a folder named Scratch within the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent folder. The cache location must have at least 2.5 GB of free space. Only local system administrators and members of the Administrators group have access to the cache directory to prevent denial-of-service attacks. Click Install when you have identified the folders that you want the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent to use.

    WarningWaarschuwing
    If you are reinstalling Windows Azure Online Backup Agent, using the same cache location as the previous installation is recommended.

  5. If you have not enabled automatic updates on your server, the Microsoft Update Opt-In page is displayed to give you the opportunity to enable Microsoft Update for Windows Server 2012. The Microsoft Update settings are for all Microsoft product updates, and they are not exclusive to the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent. Click Next to continue.

  6. The Installation page is displayed. A progress indicator displays when the installation begins and shows the progress of the installation. When the installation is complete, you will receive a message that the Windows Azure Online Backup Agent was installed successfully. At this point, you can choose to check for updates. It is recommended that you allow the updates check to occur.

  7. Click Finish. If you selected to check for updates, Internet Explorer will automatically start and the updates check will be performed. After any updates have been installed, you are ready to start configuring Windows Azure Online Backup Agent.

At this point you can start the Windows Azure Online Backup management console from the Start menu, the desktop icon, or within the Windows Server Backup MMC snap-in. Windows PowerShell cmdlets for Windows Azure Online Backup have also been installed, so you can begin using Windows PowerShell to work with Windows Azure Online Backup.

Continue on to the Register Servers with Windows Azure Online Backup scenario.

  1. Open a command prompt with administrator privileges.

  2. Navigate to the location where you downloaded the installer file.

  3. Type obsinstaller.exe, and then append option parameters as appropriate for your environment. The option parameters are as follows:

    noteOpmerking
    If no parameters are supplied, all default values are used to complete the installation.

    • /q   Quiet installation. No further prompts will be shown. Any parameters not specified will use the default values.

      Example: obsinstaller.exe /q

    • /p:<location>   Type the path to the location of the installation folder that you want Windows Azure Online Backup to use. If this parameter is not specified, the installation folder will be <systemdrive>:\Program Files\Windows Azure Online Backup Agent.

      Example: obsinstaller.exe /p:"D:\installlocation"

    • /s:<location>   Type the path to the folder that you want to use for the cache location (scratch folder). If this parameter is not specified, the cache location folder will be <systemdrive>:\Program Files\Windows Azure Online Backup Agent\Scratch.

      Example: obsinstaller.exe /s:"D:\scratchpath"

    • /m   This parameter is used to opt-in to Microsoft Update and enable automatic updates. If this parameter is not specified the Automatic Updates setting on the server will not be changed.

    • /nu   This parameter causes the server to not check for updates after installation is complete. If this parameter is not specified, a check for updates will occur automatically after installation is complete.

    • /d   Removes Windows Azure Online Backup Agent from the server.
