At the IP Assignment step of the wizard, select a type of the IP address that you want assign to the Veeam Backup for GCP appliance:
- To assign a dynamic IP to the Veeam Backup for GCP appliance, select Dynamic IP address.
- To assign an external static IP to the Veeam Backup for GCP appliance, select Static IP address. You can either select an existing external static IP address from the drop-down list, or reserve a new static IP.
For an IP to be displayed in the list of available static IPs, it must be reserved beforehand as described in Reserving a static external IP address section in the Google Cloud documentation. Note that the external static IP address that you assign to the Veeam Backup for GCP appliance must be the IPv4 regional IP address.
