Configuring Initial Settings
Before you restore machines from backups, you must configure initial settings for Microsoft Azure in Veeam Backup & Replication. As part of this process, you must perform the following tasks:
- [For restore of Linux machines] Configure helper appliances in Microsoft Azure.
- [For restore process speed-up] Configure an Azure proxy.
If you added the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure and you plan to restore Amazon EC2 instances from restore points that were created using the appliance, you do not need to configure the helper appliance and Azure proxy. Also, restore to Microsoft Azure works as described in the Performing VM Restore section in Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure User Guide.
