Step 3. Connect Backup Servers to Veeam Availability Console

To manage Veeam Backup & Replication servers in Veeam Availability Console, you must configure connection to these servers.

When you connect a Veeam Backup & Replication server to Veeam Availability Console, a Veeam Availability Console management agent is deployed on a backup server. This management agent is responsible for communication between the backup server and Veeam Availability Console.

To connect a Veeam Backup & Replication server to Veeam Availability Console:

  1. Log on as an Administrator to a machine that runs Veeam Backup & Replication.
  2. In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, open the Backup Infrastructure view.
  3. In the inventory pane on the left, right-click the Service providers node and choose Add service provider.
  4. At the Service Provider step of the wizard, do the following:
  1. In the DNS name or IP address field, specify a DNS name or IP address of a cloud gateway.

If for evaluation you deployed all Veeam Availability Console components on the same machine, specify an address of this machine.

  1. In the Port field, specify the port on the cloud gateway that is used to transfer backup data to the cloud.

The default port is 6180.

  1. Select the Allow this Veeam Backup & Replication installation to be managed by the service provider check box.
  1. At the Credentials steps of the wizard, add user credentials of a Company Owner account.

These are credentials that you specified at the previous stage, when registering the company account. For details, see Step 2. Register Account for Managed Company.

  1. Follow other steps and close the wizard.
