Step 4. Allocate Backup Resources

In this article

    The Backup Resources step of the wizard is available if you selected the Backup storage check box at the AD Account step of the wizard. At this step of the wizard, specify cloud repository quota settings for the created tenant account. You can assign to the tenant a single quota on one cloud repository or several quotas on different cloud repositories.

    To assign a cloud repository quota:

    1. Click Add on the right of the Cloud repositories list.
    2. In the Cloud repository name field of the Set Quota window, enter a friendly name for the cloud repository you want to present to the tenant. The name you enter will be displayed in the list of backup repositories at tenant’s side.
    3. From the Backup repository list, select a backup repository in your backup infrastructure whose space resources must be allocated to the tenant.
    4. In the User quota field, specify the amount of space you want to allocate to the tenant on the selected backup repository.
    5. Click OK.
    6. Repeat steps 1–5 for all backup repositories in your backup infrastructure whose resources you want to allocate to the tenant.
    7. If you want to protect tenant backups against unwanted deletion, select the Keep deleted backup files for <N> days check box and specify the number of days to keep a backup in the recycle bin after a backup is deleted by the tenant. To learn more, see Insider Protection.

    Step 4. Allocate Backup Resources Note

    Consider the following:

    • The Enable WAN acceleration through the following WAN accelerator option does not apply to Active Directory tenant accounts. Tenants with accounts of this type connect to the SP in Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows and cannot specify a source WAN accelerator in Veeam Agent.
    • With the Keep deleted backup files for <N> days option enabled, Veeam Backup & Replication will disable retention policy for deleted VMs specified in the properties of a tenant backup job. To avoid keeping redundant data in a cloud repository, it is recommended that the SP enables the Use per-VM backup files option in the properties of the backup repository whose storage resources the SP exposes to tenants as cloud repositories.
    • If the Keep deleted backup files for <N> days option is enabled in the properties of the tenant account, and the Use per-VM backup files option is not enabled in the properties of the backup repository whose storage resources the SP exposes to the tenant, the tenant will be unable to remove individual VMs from backups in the cloud repository. When the tenant starts the Delete from disk operation for a specific VM in the backup, the operation will complete with an error.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

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