Before You Begin
Before you configure an Azure proxy, check the following prerequisites:
- You must import information about your Microsoft Azure user account to Veeam Backup & Replication.
- You must configure the following objects in Microsoft Azure beforehand:
- Storage account whose resources you plan to use to store disks of the Azure proxy.
- Networks to which you plan to connect the Azure proxy.
For storage accounts and network configuration, you must use the same deployment model that you plan to use for Azure proxy creation.
For restore to Microsoft Azure for environments with ExpressRoute or site-to-site VPN connectivity to Azure, you may need to create a registry key. For more information, see this Veeam KB article.
When you deploy Azure proxy for Azure Stack, make sure that Windows Server 2012 R2 is available in Azure marketplace.
