Step 2.2 Connect Veeam Cloud Connect Servers to Veeam Availability Console

To allow Veeam Availability Console communicate with the Veeam Cloud Connect server, you must configure a connection to this Veeam Cloud Connect server. When you connect the Veeam Cloud Connect server, Veeam Availability Console deploys its management agent on the Veeam Cloud Connect server.

You can add multiple Veeam Cloud Connect servers located at different sites.

To configure a connection to the Veeam Cloud Connect server:
