Setting Locations

You can set locations for managed machines running Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager and Veeam backup agents. By default, all managed Veeam backup agents, Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager servers reside in the Default location. By setting a new location, you 'move' a managed machine to a new logical group.

You can also set locations for company users to control the scope of data that must be available to these users in the Client Portal. A user working with the Client Portal can only work with details of managed machines that are included in the scope of a location, or locations, to which this user is subscribed.
