Backup Server Settings

The Backup Server step of the wizard is available if you have chosen to restore data from a backup file located in a backup repository.

Specify settings for the Veeam backup server that manages the backup repository:

  1. In the Veeam backup server name or IP address field, specify a DNS name or IP address of the Veeam backup server.
  2. In the Port field, specify a number of the port over which Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows must communicate with the backup server. By default, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows uses port 10001.
  3. Select one of the following authentication methods to access the Veeam backup repository:
  • Credentials in the Username and Password fields, enter a user name and password of the account that has access to this backup repository.

Permissions on the backup repository managed by the target Veeam backup server must be granted beforehand. To learn more, see Setting Up User Permissions on Backup Repositories.
