Adding Microsoft SMB3 Servers

Veeam Backup Free Edition supports Microsoft Hyper-V VMs whose disks reside on Microsoft SMB3 file shares and lets you create VeeamZIP files for such VMs.

  • Microsoft Hyper-V host on which VMs are registered
  • Microsoft SMB3 server or cluster hosting shared folders with VM disks

Before adding a Microsoft SMB3 server or cluster, check prerequisites. Then use the New SMB3 Server wizard to add the server or cluster.

  1. Launch the New SMB3 Server wizard
  2. Specify a server name and address
  3. Specify server type
  4. Specify credentials
  5. Review components
  6. Finish working with the wizard
  7. Configure SMB3 shares
