Step 2. Specify Veeam Backup for GCP Appliance
At the Veeam Backup for GCP step of the wizard, specify the Veeam Backup for GCP appliance that will manage the infrastructure to which you want to add an archive repository:
- From the Appliance drop-down list, select the necessary Veeam Backup for GCP appliance. A new archive repository will be added to the infrastructure managed by the selected Veeam Backup for GCP appliance.
For an appliance to be displayed in the Appliance drop-down list, it must be added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure as described in the Adding Veeam Backup for GCP Appliances section.
- In the Repository name field, enter a name for the archive repository. Note that Veeam Backup & Replication will assign this name to the folder that stores the backed-up data.
The maximum length of the name is 127 characters; all special characters except for /!*'()_-. are not supported.
- In the Description field, enter a description for future reference.
