  3. Select the cloud repository.

Specifying Service Provider Settings

The Service Provider step of the wizard is available if you have chosen to save backup files on a Veeam Cloud Connect repository.

Specify settings for the cloud gateway that the SP or your backup administrator has provided to you:

  1. In the DNS name or IP address field, enter a full DNS name or IP address of the cloud gateway.
  2. In the Port field, specify the port over which Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows will communicate with the cloud gateway. By default, port 6180 is used.

Veeam Cloud Connect Repository Settings Tip:

You can look for service providers who offer Repository as a Service using Veeam Backup & Replication. The list of service providers is published on the Veeam website and constantly updated. You can select the necessary service provider from the list and contact this service provider to get the cloud repository service.

To find a service provider, click the Click here to open the directory link. Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows will open a web page on the Veeam website. Use the filter on the web page to find the necessary service provider by the type of provided cloud services, service provider datacenter location or service area.

Specifying User Account Settings

The Credentials step of the wizard is available if you have chosen to save backup files on a cloud repository and specified settings for the cloud gateway.

Verify TLS certificate settings and specify settings for the tenant account or subtenant account that you want to use to connect to the cloud repository.

  1. At the top of the wizard window, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows displays information about the TLS certificate obtained from the SP side. You can view the certificate settings and verify the TLS certificate.

TLS certificate verification is optional. You can use this option to verify self-signed TLS certificates. TLS certificates signed by the CA do not require additional verification.

  1. In the Username field, enter the 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.
  2. In the Password field, provide a password for the tenant or subtenant account.
