Step 3. Specify Credentials and Transport Port

At the Credentials step of the wizard, you must specify credentials of the local administrator account on the Azure proxy and define the transport port.

  1. When you configure an Azure proxy, Veeam Backup Free Edition creates an account with the Local Administrator permissions on this proxy. To specify a username and password for this account:
  1. On the right of the Credentials list, click the Manage accounts link or click Add.
  2. In the Credentials window, enter a user name, password and description for the account.

You must specify the user name without a domain or Microsoft Azure machine name. The password must be at least 8 characters long, and must contain at least 1 uppercase character, 1 lowercase character, 1 numeric character and 1 special character.

  1. Click OK.
  1. In the Traffic port field, specify a port over which Veeam Backup Free Edition will control components installed on the Azure proxy and transport VM disks data to blob storage. By default, port 6181 is used. The port must be opened on the backup server and backup repository storing VM backups.

Step 3. Specify Credentials and Transport Port Important!

You cannot use reserved names such as 'administrator', 'admin', 'user', 'abc@123', 'P@$$w0rd' and so on as a user name and password of the local administrator account.
