    Editing Connection to Veeam Backup Server IMPORTANT

    If you specify a DNS name of the Veeam backup server, make sure that the Veeam backup server name is resolved into IPv4 address on the machine where Veeam Agent is installed.

If the Veeam backup server name is resolved into IPv6 address, Veeam Agent will fail to connect to the Veeam backup server.
