Importing Certificate from Certificate Store

If the Veeam backup server has been issued a TLS certificate signed by a CA and the TLS certificate is located in the Microsoft Windows certificate store, you can use this certificate for authenticating parties in the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure.


If you update the TLS certificate used on the backup server, you must also update info about the certificate on the specific backup infrastructure components as described in section Backup Server Certificate.

  1. From the main menu, select Options.
  2. Click the Security tab.
  3. In the Security tab, click Install.
