Step 7. Specify Credentials

In this article

    At the Credentials step of the wizard, specify credentials of a user account that has administrative privileges on the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance. This can be the backup administrator account created during the installation of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure or a backup administrator account created during further work with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure.

    If you have not added the credentials beforehand, click the Manage accounts link or the Add button to add the necessary credentials. For more information on adding credentials, see the Credentials Manager section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    Important

    Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is not supported. For more information on how to disable MFA, see the Configuring MFA Settings section in the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure User Guide.

    When you add a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance, Veeam Backup & Replication saves in the configuration database a thumbprint of the web certificate installed on the appliance. When Veeam Backup & Replication connects to the appliance, it uses the saved thumbprint to verify the appliance identity and to avoid the man-in-the-middle attack. For details on managing web certificates, see the Working with Certificates section in the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure User Guide.

    If the certificate installed on the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance is not trusted, Veeam Backup & Replication will display a warning. In the warning window, you can do the following:

    • Click View to view detailed information about the certificate.
    • Click Continue to trust the certificate.
    • Click Cancel if you do not trust the certificate. However, in this case you will not be able to connect to the appliance.

    Note

    When you update a certificate on an appliance, this appliance becomes unavailable in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. To make the appliance available again, acknowledge the new certificate at the Credentials step of the Edit Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Appliance wizard. For more information on how to launch the wizard, see Editing Appliance Settings.
