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 user 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, mind the following:
- [For restore to Microsoft Azure Stack Hub version 1808 and later] You must configure the backup server. For more information, see this Veeam KB article.
- Azure Stack Hub tenant user account must have the Owner role privileges for the required subscription.
[For restore to Microsoft Azure] If the Owner role cannot be used, you can create a custom role with minimal permissions. To learn how to create a custom role, see Creating Custom Role for Azure Account.
- Accounts with the enabled Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) are not supported. You must disable MFA for the required account. App passwords are not supported.
