Step 3. Specify Credentials and Data Center Settings
At the Account step of the wizard, specify a Google Cloud Platform service account, data center and availability zone to use for machine restore.
When you add credentials of the Google Cloud Platform service account, Veeam Backup & Replication imports information about resources associated with this service account. During the restore process, Veeam Backup & Replication accesses these resources and uses them to create a target instance in Google Compute Engine.
To specify credentials of the existing Google Cloud Platform service account and region settings:
- From the Google Cloud Platform service account list, select user credentials to connect to Google Compute Engine. If you have not set up credentials beforehand in the Cloud Credentials Manager, click the Manage accounts link or click Add on the right to add the necessary credentials, as described in Google Cloud Platform Service Accounts.
- From the Data center list, select the Google Cloud data center where Veeam Backup & Replication will create an instance for your restored machine.
- From the Zone list, select the availability zone inside the Google Cloud data center where Veeam Backup & Replication will create a VM instance for your restored machine.
If you restore a Google Compute Engine VM instance from a backup created with Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform to the same Google Cloud region where the instance is placed, after you click Next, the wizard will offer you to use region settings associated with this instance.
