At the Target step of the wizard, select a server that will have access to disk content. You can select the following servers depending on the OS of the Veeam Agent computer:

  • Linux server — for Linux-based, Unix-based and macOS-based Veeam Agent computers.
  • Microsoft Windows server — for Microsoft Windows-based Veeam Agent computers.

You can select one of the following types of servers:

  • A server added to the backup infrastructure.

If you want to add a new backup server to the backup infrastructure at this step, click Add. In this case, you will be able to add a new Microsoft Windows server or a new Linux server. To learn more, see the Adding Microsoft Windows Servers and the Adding Linux Servers section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

  • A temporary server. In this case, select Specify a different host from the drop-down list. In the Target Server window, specify the following settings:
  1. In the Host name field, specify a server name or IP address of the server.
  2. Select the account from the Credentials list. If you have not set up credentials beforehand, click the Manage accounts link or click Add on the right to add a new account in the Credentials Manager. To learn more, see the Credentials Manager section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
  3. [For Linux-based, Unix-based and macOS-based Veeam Agent computers] Click Advanced and customize connection settings in the Network Settings window. To learn more, see Customizing Connection Settings.
  • [For Microsoft Windows-based and Linux-based Veeam Agent computers] The original server. In this case, select Original server from the drop-down list.

If prompted, specify credentials for the target server.
