Step 6. Select Resource Group
At the Resource Group step of the wizard, you can specify settings of the resource group to which the Azure proxy must be placed.
By default, Veeam Backup & Replication creates a new resource group for the Azure proxy and places the proxy to it. If necessary, you can place the proxy to an existing resource group.
Select the necessary option for the Azure proxy:
- If you want to place the Azure proxy to an existing resource group, select Place VM into the existing resource group. From the list below, select the necessary resource group.
- If you want to create a dedicated resource group for the Azure proxy, select Create a new resource group. In the Name field, enter a name for the new resource group. The resource group name can be up to 64 characters long, and can contain only alphanumeric, underscore and hyphen characters.
In the new resource group, Veeam Backup & Replication automatically creates a Network Security Group, dynamic public IP and network interface. In the DNS name label field, enter a name of for the new dynamic public IP created with Veeam Backup & Replication. The DNS name label can be up to 80 characters long, and can contain only alphanumeric, dash and underscore characters. For more information, see Microsoft Docs.
Microsoft Azure subscriptions have default limits on the number of resource groups. If you decide to create a new resource group, make sure that you do not exceed limits of the subscription.
