Configuring Helper Appliances
Before you configure helper appliances, consider the following:
- Veeam Backup & Replication uses its built-in credentials record to work with all helper appliances. For security reasons, we recommended that you change a password for this account before you set up the helper appliances. Changing credentials is required only once. For more information, see Changing Credentials for Helper Appliances.
- If you plan to restore Linux workloads to different locations, you must configure a helper appliance in each location to which workloads will be restored.
Helper appliances are configured when you add a Microsoft Azure compute or Microsoft Azure Stack account. For more information, see the Helper Appliance step description in the Microsoft Azure Compute Accounts or Microsoft Azure Stack Hub Compute Accounts section.
