Step 5. Specify Credentials

At the Credentials step of the wizard, select credentials for an account that will be created on the Nutanix AHV backup appliance for accessing the web console.


Do not select Active Directory accounts – the Nutanix AHV backup appliance does not support LDAP integration.

For credentials to be displayed in the Credentials list, they must be added to the Credentials Manager as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Standard Accounts. If you have not added the necessary credentials to the Credentials Manager beforehand, you can do this without closing the New Nutanix Proxy wizard. To add credentials, do the following:

  1. Click Add.
  2. In the Credentials window, specify a user name and password for the account.

The user name must start with a lowercase Latin letter and must not match Linux system user names (such as root, daemon). The name can contain only lowercase Latin letters, numeric characters, underscores and dashes. The maximum length of the name is 32 characters.

  1. Click OK.
