Step 2. Specify Object Storage Account

In this article

    At the Account step of the wizard, specify the connection settings:

    1. In the Service point field, specify a service point address of your AWS Snowball Edge device and define a port. To learn what port you need to define, see AWS Snowball Edge Developer Guide, section Ports Required to Use AWS Services on an AWS Snowball Edge Device. Otherwise, the default 443 port is used.
    2. In the Region field, type "snow".
    3. From the Credentials drop-down list, select user credentials to access your AWS Snowball Edge storage.

    If you already have a credentials record that was configured in advance, select it from the drop-down list. Otherwise, click Add and provide your access and secret keys, as described in Access Keys for AWS Users. You can also click the Manage cloud accounts link to add, edit or remove a credentials record.

    To use a gateway server, select the Use the following gateway server check box and choose an appropriate server from the list. You may want to use a gateway server, for example, if your organization has NAT or different types of firewalls and your access to the internet is limited.

    You can select any Microsoft Windows or Linux server that is added to your backup infrastructure and has internet connection.  For more information on how to add such a server to your environment, see Adding Microsoft Windows Servers and Adding Linux Servers respectively. By default, the role of a gateway server is assigned to the machine where Veeam Backup & Replication is installed.

    If you choose not to use a gateway server, make sure that all scale-out repository extents have direct internet access.
