Step 5. Specify AWS Network Resources

In this article

    At the Networking step of the wizard, specify the AWS network resource settings:

    1. In the Amazon VPC drop-down list, do one of the following:
    • Select an existing Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) to which the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance will be connected. For a VPC to be displayed in the drop-down list, it must be created in advance as described in the Working with VPCs and subnets section in the AWS documentation.
    • Select (create new) to cretae a new VPC. The veeamvpc VPC will be created.
    1. In the Subnet drop-down list, do one of the following:
    • Select an existing subnet to which the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance will be connected. For a subnet to be displayed in the drop-down list, it must be created in advance as described in the Working with VPCs and subnets section in the AWS documentation.
    • Select (create new) to create a new subnet. The veeamsubnet subnet will be created.
    1. In the Security group drop-down list, do one of the following:
    • Select an existing AWS security group to which the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance will be connected. For a security group to be displayed in the drop-down list, it must be created in advance as described in the Working with security groups section in the AWS documentation.
    • Select (create new) to create a new security group. The veeamsecuritygroup security group will be created.

    Note

    If you choose to create a new resource (VPC, subnet or security group), but the resource was already created by Veeam (veeamvpc, veeamsubnet or veeamsecuritygroup), the existing resource will be used.

    1. In the Backup server public IP address field, specify a public IP address or a scope of IP addresses in CIDR notation that will be allowed to access the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance. Note that the Veeam Backup & Replication server IP address must fall into the specified IP addresses.

    If you have selected to create a new security group, AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication will create a security rule for the specified IP addresses that allows access the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance through HTTPS. If you have selected an existing security group, make sure the selected VPC security group allows the access. For more information on how to configure the access, see AWS Documentation.
