1 Before installation
This section answers questions that might arise before the product installation.
1.1
Types of licenses (stand-alone and advanced
editions)
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 licensing is based on the number of machines backed up by the
product.
Stand-alone editions
These are the following editions:



Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Server for Windows
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Server for Linux
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Workstation
The stand-alone editions are designed for backing up the data of a single machine. With any of the
above licenses, you can install all the product components on the same machine only. You will be
asked for the license key of any of the above editions during the product installation.
Advanced editions (editions with centralized management)
These are the following editions:




Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Advanced Server
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Virtual Edition
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Advanced Server SBS Edition
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Advanced Workstation
These editions are designed for backing up multiple machines. In addition to components that need
to be installed on a backed up machine, these editions include a management server that enables
centralized management, and storage nodes for storing backed up data on them. Unlike stand-alone
editions, advanced editions allow remote connection to a backed up machine.
As with stand-alone editions, a separate license is required for every machine you want to back up.
During installation of a licensed component (agent), you can either specify a license server or enter a
license key manually. Installation of other components is not licensed. For example, you can install as
many storage nodes as you wish - up to 50.
Components of stand-alone editions do not interact with the components of advanced editions.
1.2
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 components
This section contains a list of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 components with a brief description of
their functionality.
3
Copyright © Acronis International GmbH, 2002-2012.
Components for a managed machine (agents)
These are applications that perform data backup, recovery and other operations on the machines
managed with Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5. Agents require a license to perform operations on
each managed machine. Agents have multiple features, or add-ons, that enable additional
functionality and so might require additional licenses.
Console
The console provides Graphical User Interface to the agents. Usage of the console is not licensed. In
stand-alone editions of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5, the console is installed together with the
agent and cannot be disconnected from it.
Bootable Media Builder
With Bootable Media Builder, you can create bootable media in order to use the agents and other
rescue utilities in a rescue environment. In stand-alone editions of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5,
Bootable Media Builder is installed together with the agent. All add-ons to the agent, if installed, will
be available in a rescue environment.
1.2.1
Agent for Windows
This agent enables disk-level and file-level data protection under Windows.
Disk backup
Disk-level data protection is based on backing up either a disk or a volume file system as a whole,
along with all the information necessary for the operating system to boot; or all the disk sectors using
the sector-by-sector approach (raw mode). A backup that contains a copy of a disk or a volume in a
packaged form is called a disk (volume) backup or a disk (volume) image. It is possible to recover
disks or volumes as a whole from such backup, as well as individual folders or files.
File backup
File-level data protection is based on backing up files and folders residing on the machine where the
agent is installed or on a network share. Files can be recovered to their original location or to another
place. It is possible to recover all files and folders that were backed up or select which of them to
recover.
Other operations
Conversion to a virtual machine
Agent for Windows performs the conversion by recovering a disk backup to a new virtual machine of
any of the following types: VMware Workstation, Microsoft Virtual PC, Parallels Workstation, Citrix
XenServer Open Virtual Appliance (OVA) or Red Hat Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM). Files of the
fully configured and operational machine will be placed in the folder you select. You can start the
machine using the respective virtualization software or prepare the machine files for further usage.
Disk management
Agent for Windows includes Acronis Disk Director Lite - a handy disk management utility. Disk
management operations, such as cloning disks; converting disks; creating, formatting and deleting
volumes; changing a disk partitioning style between MBR and GPT or changing a disk label, can be
performed either in the operating system or using bootable media.

1.2.1.1
Universal Restore
The Universal Restore add-on enables you to use the restore to dissimilar hardware functionality on
the machine where the agent is installed and create bootable media with this functionality. Universal
Restore handles differences in devices that are critical for the operating system start-up, such as
storage controllers, motherboard or chipset.
1.2.2
Agent for Microsoft Exchange Server
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Agent for Microsoft Exchange Server enables you to back up and
recover Microsoft Exchange databases or individual mailboxes. The agent uses Microsoft VSS to
ensure the consistency of the backed up databases. Recovery of the smaller data items (e-mails,
calendar events or notes) is available from both database and mailbox backups.
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Agent for Microsoft Exchange Server is referred to as Agent for
Exchange later in this document.
1.2.3
Management Console
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Management Console is an administrative tool for local access to
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 agent. Remote connection to the agent is not possible.
1.2.4
Bootable Media Builder
Acronis Bootable Media Builder is a dedicated tool for creating bootable media. The media builder
that installs on Windows can create bootable media based on either Windows Preinstallation
Environment, or Linux kernel.
The Universal Restore (p. 5) add-on enables you to create bootable media with the restore to
dissimilar hardware functionality. Universal Restore handles differences in devices that are critical for
Windows start-up, such as storage controllers, motherboard or chipset.

remain installed.
2.3
Installation of Agent for Exchange
Agent for Exchange enables data protection of Microsoft Exchange servers.
Preparation
Licenses. Make sure that you have a sufficient number of licenses. You need one license per
Exchange server. If you have an Exchange cluster, we recommend obtaining licenses for each node of
the cluster. Agent for Exchange requires either of the following licenses to work:


Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 for Microsoft Exchange Server.
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Advanced Server SBS Edition.
Requirements. Make sure that the Exchange server meets the following requirements:

7
For Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 SP2: Hotfix http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908072 must
be installed.
Copyright © Acronis International GmbH, 2002-2012.

For Microsoft Exchange Server 2007/2010: The MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects
(version 1.2.1) package must be installed. To download and install this package, visit
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=6248.

The Exchange writer for VSS must be turned on. In Windows Small Business Server 2003, the
writer is turned off by default. For instructions on how to turn it on, see the following Microsoft
Knowledge Base article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838183/.
Which setup program to choose?
Agent for Exchange is included in the setup programs of both the stand-alone and advanced editions
of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5. The functionality provided by the agent is the same in both setup
programs. However, certain advanced features can be used only in combination with components of
the advanced Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 editions. Here are some tips to help you choose
between a stand-alone and an advanced configuration.

Setup program for stand-alone editions of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5
Recommended for backing up Exchange data in simple Exchange organizations having a standalone Exchange server that hosts all Exchange services and data.

Setup program for the advanced editions of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5
Recommended for large Exchange organizations where multiple Exchange servers are integrated
into a cluster. The following features can be used only in advanced Acronis Backup & Recovery
11.5 configurations:

Comprehensive protection of Exchange clusters
Requires installation of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Management Server and installation
of Agent for Exchange on each cluster node.

Using the Express full backup method
Requires installation of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Management Server and Acronis
Backup & Recovery 11.5 Storage Node. Requires installation of the "Express backup and
deduplication" add-on to Agent for Exchange.
The "Express backup and deduplication" add-on is purchased separately. You do not need to
purchase and install this add-on if Agent for Windows and its deduplication add-on are
already installed on your Exchange server.
Installation from the setup program for stand-alone editions
Run the setup program and follow the on-screen instructions (p. 7).
2.4
Specifying credentials for the Acronis service
Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 uses the Acronis Managed Machine Service, also referred to as the agent service.
When installing Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5, you need to specify the account under which the
service will run.
You can either create a dedicated user account or specify an existing account of a local or domain
user; for example: .\LocalUser or DomainName\DomainUser
By default, the setup program will create a new dedicated account for the service.
8
Copyright © Acronis International GmbH, 2002-2012.
When to choose an existing account?
The new account fits most cases. You must specify an existing account when installing the product on
a domain controller in an Active Directory domain (provided that the edition supports Windows
Server operating systems). This restriction does not apply to ordinary members of a domain.
Privileges for the account
The account (whether existing or newly created) is given the following privileges:

The account is included in the Backup Operators group.
The new account for the service is also included in the Administrators group. For security
reasons, the setup program does not automatically include the existing account in this group.

The account is granted the Full Control permission on the folder %AllUsersProfile%\Application
Data\Acronis and on its subfolders.

The account is granted the Full Control permission on registry keys in the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis.

The account is assigned the Log on as a service, Adjust memory quotas for a process, Replace a
process level token, and Modify firmware environment values user rights.
Tips for further usage


The new account has the name Acronis Agent User.

After the installation, avoid specifying a different account for the service. Otherwise, the product
may stop working. If you must specify a different account, make sure that the new account is
granted the above listed privileges.
If the machine is part of an Active Directory domain, make sure that the domain's security
policies do not prevent the account (whether existing or newly created) from having the above
listed user rights.
2.5
Unattended installation
Components of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 can be installed in the unattended mode, as
opposed to the interactive mode.
Some components require a file known as a transform (an .mst file). Use of a transform for other
components is optional.
The following table summarizes components and features that can be installed or updated in the
unattended mode.

Preparation
To create a transform for a component, you need the configuration script mst_gen.vbs.
This script is located in the folder where Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Management Console is
installed. The default folder path is:


%ProgramFiles%\Acronis\BackupAndRecoveryConsole in 32-bit Windows
%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Acronis\BackupAndRecoveryConsole in 64-bit Windows
Order of installation
First, install the management console. When you install the agent, first install the Agent Core
component, then the agent itself, and then (optionally) the Universal Restore feature.
Installation procedure
To install or update a component in the unattended mode
1.
2.
3.
4.
Start the setup program.
Click Extract installation files.
Extract the component's installation package.
If you are installing a component that uses a transform, create the transform by running the
configuration script. Otherwise, skip this step.
For example:

The following command creates a transform to install the Agent Core component:
mst_gen.vbs /msi_path C:\AcronisAgentCore.msi

The following command creates a transform to install Agent for Windows with the license
key ABCDE-54321:
mst_gen.vbs /msi_path C:\AcronisAgentWindows.msi /serial ABCDE-54321
Similarly, you can create a transform to install the Universal Restore feature.
The complete syntax of the configuration script is described in "Configuration script parameters
(p. 11)".
5. Do either of the following, depending on whether you are installing or updating the component:

If you are installing the component, run Windows Installer (the msiexec program) as
follows:
When installing a component that uses a transform (in this example, Agent for Windows):
msiexec /i c:\AcronisAgentWindows.msi TRANSFORMS=AcronisAgentWindows.mst
/qb
Otherwise (in this example, when installing the management console):
msiexec /i c:\AcronisStandaloneManagementConsole.msi /qb

If you are updating the component, run Windows Installer as follows:
When updating a component that uses a transform (in this example, Agent for Windows):
msiexec /i C:\AcronisAgentWindows.msi TRANSFORMS=C:\AcronisAgentWindows.mst
ADDLOCAL=ALL /qb

Copyright © Acronis International GmbH, 2002-2012.
Otherwise (in this example, when updating the management console):
msiexec /i C:\AcronisStandaloneManagementConsole.msi ADDLOCAL=ALL /qb /l*v
C:\log.log
2.6
Configuration script parameters
The configuration script mst_gen.vbs creates an .mst file (known as a transform, a modification,
or a modification file) for the installation package of an Acronis component such as Acronis Backup &
Recovery 11.5 Agent for Windows.
By using the transform together with the installation package, you can install the component in the
unattended mode.
