Creating Passwords

You can use the Password Manager to create one or more passwords.

To create a new password:

  1. From the main menu, select Manage Passwords. Alternatively, you can use job properties to create a new password:
    1. Open the Home view.
    2. In the inventory pane, select Jobs.
    3. In the working area, right-click the backup or backup copy job and select Edit.
    4. At the Storage step of the wizard (for backup job) or Target step of the wizard (for backup copy job), click Advanced.
    5. Click the Storage tab.
    6. In the Encryption section of the Advanced Setting window, select the Enable backup file encryption check box and click the Manage passwords link.

Veeam Backup & Replication will open the Password Manager.

  1. In the Password Manager, click Add.
  2. In the Hint field, specify a hint for the created password. It is recommended that you provide a meaningful hint that will help you recall the password. The password hint is displayed when you import an encrypted file on the backup server and access this file.
  3. In the Password field, enter a password. To view the entered password, click and hold the eye icon on the right of the field.

Creating PasswordsImportant!

Always save a copy of the password you create in a secure place. If you lose the password, you will not be able to restore it.
