Step 11. Specify Backup Server Settings

The Backup Server step of the wizard is available if at the Destination step you have chosen to store backup files on a Veeam Backup & Replication repository.

Specify settings for the Veeam backup server that manages the target backup repository:

  1. In the Veeam backup server name or IP address field, specify a DNS name or IP address of the Veeam backup server.
  2. In the Port field, specify a number of the port over which Veeam backup agent must communicate with the backup repository.

By default, Veeam backup agent uses port 10001.


If you specify a DNS name of the Veeam backup server, make sure that the Veeam backup server name is resolved into IPv4 address on the machine where Veeam backup agent is installed. The Veeam Backup Service in Veeam Backup & Replication listens on IPv4 addresses only. If the Veeam backup server name is resolved into IPv6 address, Veeam backup agent will fail to connect to the Veeam backup server.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:


I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
