Connecting to Service Provider

To create Veeam Agent backups on a cloud repository, you must connect to a Veeam Cloud Connect service provider.

To connect Veeam Agent for Linux to a service provider, use the following command:

veeamconfig cloud add --name <sp_name> --address <sp_address> --port <sp_port> --login <username> --password <password>


  • <sp_name> — name of the service provider to which you want to connect.
  • <sp_address> — IP address or full DNS name of the cloud gateway that the SP or your backup administrator has provided to you.
  • <sp_port> — port over which Veeam Agent for Linux must communicate with the cloud gateway. The default port used for communication with the cloud gateway is 6180.
  • <username> — user name of the tenant or subtenant account that the SP or your backup administrator has provided to you. The user name of the subtenant account must be specified in the TENANT\SUBTENANT format.
  • <password> — password of the tenant or subtenant account used to connect to the service provider.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig cloud add --name SP --address --port 6180 --login TechCompany\User01 --password P@ssw0rd


Connecting to Service Provider Note:

When you enter the veeamconfig cloud add command, Veeam Agent for Linux will display information about the TLS certificate obtained from the SP. To accept the certificate, type yes in the command prompt and press Enter.

When Veeam Agent for Linux connects to the service provider, Veeam Agent for Linux retrieves information about cloud repositories available to the tenant or subtenant and displays them in the list of available backup repositories. You can then specify a cloud repository as a target for a backup job.

Connecting to Service Provider Tip:

To view the list of available cloud repositories, use the veeamconfig repository list command. To learn more, see Viewing List of Backup Repositories.
