Authentication vs. Authorization
Authentication is about identifying (that is, establishing the identity of a user) — when you request authentication, you verify specific credentials. Authorization is about authorizing (that is, justifying the level of access granted to an authenticated user) — when you request authorization, you verify specific permissions.
- Veeam Backup & Replication uses IP address authorization to restrict access to the vPower NFS server.
- The request body must contain credentials of an account with the VAO Administrator or Plan Author privileges. To learn how to authorize your access, see Example Requests and Responses.
- In the Authentication section, select an authentication mode to connect to the Microsoft SQL Server instance: either Windows Authentication or SQL Server Authentication. If you select the Microsoft SQL Server authentication mode, specify credentials of a user account that you want to use.
- Local accounts do not support Kerberos authentication. To authenticate with Microsoft Windows guest OS using Kerberos, specify an Active Directory account.
