Step 2. Specify Veeam Backup for AWS Appliance and Repository Name
At the Veeam Backup for AWS step of the wizard, specify the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance to whose infrastructure you want to add an archive repository:
- From the Appliance drop-down list, select the necessary Veeam Backup for AWS appliance. The archive repository will be deployed in the infrastructure of 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 Adding Veeam Backup for AWS Appliances.
- In the Repository name field, enter a name for the archive repository. The maximum length of the name is 125 characters; all special characters except for /!*'()_-. cannot be used.
Veeam Backup & Replication will create a folder with this name in the bucket that you will specify at the Bucket step of the wizard. The backed-up data will be stored in the created folder.
- In the Description field, enter a description for future reference.
