Microsoft Azure Stack Hub Compute Accounts
To restore workloads to Microsoft Azure Stack Hub, you must add an Azure Stack Hub Compute account to Veeam Backup & Replication. When you add an Azure Stack Hub Compute account, Veeam Backup & Replication imports information about subscriptions and resources associated with this account. During the restore process, Veeam Backup & Replication accesses these resources and uses them to register new VMs in Azure Stack Hub.
If necessary, you can add different Azure Stack Hub Compute accounts to Veeam Backup & Replication. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will import information about all subscriptions and resources associated with provided accounts, and you will be able to use these resources for restore.
Information about subscriptions and resources is saved to the Veeam Backup & Replication configuration database. You can re-import this information at any time.
Before restoring workloads to Microsoft Azure Stack Hub, consider the following:
- [For restore to Microsoft Azure Stack Hub version 1808 and later] You must configure the backup server as described in this Veeam KB article.
- Check the Permissions section.
- [If you plan to restore Linux workloads using helper appliances] Veeam Backup & Replication uses its built-in credentials record to work with all helper appliances. For security reasons, we recommended that you change a password for this account before you set up the helper appliances. Changing credentials is required only once. For more information, see Changing Credentials for Helper Appliances.
- If you plan to use an existing Microsoft Entra ID (formerly Azure Active Directory) application to access Microsoft Azure (at the Account Type step), only subscriptions that belong to the selected tenant will be added.
Adding Microsoft Azure Stack Hub Account
To add a Microsoft Azure Stack Hub Compute account, do the following.
- From the main menu, select Credentials and Passwords > Cloud Credentials.
- In the Manage Cloud Credentials window, click Add and select Microsoft Azure compute account.
- At the Name step of the wizard, specify a name under which this credentials record will be shown in the Cloud Credential Manager.
- At the Deployment Type step of the wizard, select Microsoft Azure Stack. In the Azure Stack resource manager endpoint field, specify the virtual IPv4 address of Azure Resource Manager in the following format: management.<region>.<FQDN>. Note that IPv6 addresses are not supported.
To learn about Azure Stack Hub virtual IP addresses, see Microsoft Docs.
- The rest of the procedure for adding the Azure Stack account does not differ from the procedure for adding the Microsoft Azure account. Follow the steps described in Microsoft Azure Compute Account.
