Managing Microsoft Azure Blob Storage

In this article

    You can perform the following operations with Microsoft Azure Blob storage and image-level backups stored in this storage.

    Editing Blob Storage Settings

    To edit Blob storage settings, follow the instructions provided in the Editing Settings of External Repository section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    Rescanning Blob Storage

    To synchronize Blob storage backups across the Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure infrastructures, follow the instructions provided in the Rescanning External Repository section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    Removing Image-Level Backups and Snapshots from Blob Storage

    You can remove image-level backups and snapshots from Blob storage only using the Web UI component of the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance. For more information on how to delete snapshots and backups, see the Removing Backups and Snapshots section in Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure User Guide.

    Decrypting Image-Level Backups

    If you specify decryption passwords for Blob storage when adding a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance, Veeam Backup & Replication automatically decrypts backup files stored in Blob storage. If you do not specify decryption passwords, backup files remain encrypted.

    To decrypt backup files:

    1. Open the Home view.
    2. In the inventory pane, navigate to Backups > External Repository (Encrypted).
    3. In the working area, select image-level backups which you want to decrypt and which have the same decryption password. Then click Specify Password on the ribbon, or right-click one of the selected backups, and select Specify password.
    4. In the Password field, enter a password.

    In the Hint field, you can see a hint for the password used to encrypt the backup files. Use this hint to recall the password.

    Alternatively, you can specify a decryption password at the Container step of the Edit External Repository wizard. For more information on how to open the wizard, see the Editing Settings of External Repository section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

    Removing Blob Storage

    To remove Blob storage from the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, follow the instructions provided in the Removing External Repositories section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide. Note that the Blob storage will not be deleted from the infrastructure of the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
