Step 2. Specify Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Appliance
At the Backup Appliance step of the wizard, specify the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance that will manage the infrastructure to which you want to add Azure Blob storage.
- From the Appliance drop-down list, select the necessary Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance. New Blob storage will be added to the infrastructure managed by the selected Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure 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 Microsoft Azure Appliances section.
- In the Repository name field, enter a name for Blob storage. The maximum length of the name is 125 characters; all special characters except for ()_-. cannot be used.
Veeam Backup & Replication will assign this name to the folder that is located in the Veeam/Backup folder in Azure container that you will specify at the Container step of the wizard. This folder stores the backed-up data.
- In the Description field, enter a description for future reference.
The default description contains information on the user who added Blob storage, date and time when the storage was added.
