Step 3. Connect Backup Servers to Veeam Service Provider Console

In this article

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

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

    To connect a Veeam Backup & Replication server to Veeam Service Provider Console:

    1. Log in 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 trial purposes you deployed all Veeam Service Provider 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.

    Connect Backup Server

    1. At the Credentials steps of the wizard, click Add and provide user credentials of a Company Owner account.

    These are credentials that you specified at the Register Account for Managed Company step.

    Provide credentials of the Company Owner account

    1. Follow other steps and close the wizard.
    2. If you have more than one Veeam Backup & Replication server perform steps 1–6 for every server you want to connect to Veeam Service Provider Console.
