Step 2. Specify Veeam Backup for AWS Appliance
At the Veeam Backup for AWS step of the wizard, specify the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance that will manage the infrastructure to which you want to add an S3 repository.
- From the Appliance drop-down list, select the necessary Veeam Backup for AWS appliance. A new S3 repository will be added to the infrastructure managed by the selected Veeam Backup for AWS appliance.
For an appliance to be displayed in the Appliance drop-down list, it must be added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure as described in the Adding Veeam Backup for AWS Appliances section.
- In the Repository name field, enter a name for the repository. Note that Veeam Backup & Replication will assign this name to the folder that stores the backed-up data.
The maximum length of the name is 125 characters; all special characters except for /!*'()_-. cannot be used.
- In the Description field, enter a description for future reference.
The default description contains information on the user who added the repository, date and time when the repository was added.
