Step 9. Finish Working with Wizard

At the Summary step of the wizard, review configuration information and click Finish.

It is recommended that you run the backup policy check to verify whether specified IAM roles have all the required permissions, and networks settings are configured properly to launch worker instances. To run the backup policy check, click permissions check. Veeam Backup for AWS will display the Policy permissions check window where you can view the progress and results of the performed check. If the IAM role permissions are insufficient or worker instance settings are not configured properly, the check will complete with errors.

You can grant the missing permissions to the IAM role in the IAM Management Console or instruct Veeam Backup for AWS to do it. To learn how to grant permissions to an IAM Role using the IAM Management Console, see AWS Documentation.

To let Veeam Backup for AWS grant the missing permissions:

  1. In the Policy permissions check window, click the Update role link.
  2. In the Grant permissions window, provide one-time access keys of an IAM user that is authorized to update permissions of the IAM role, and then click Apply.

Note

Veeam Backup for AWS does not store one-time access keys in the configuration database.

Step 9. Finish Working with Wizard 

  1. After the required permissions are granted, close the Policy permissions check window, and then click Finish to close the Add Policy wizard.

Veeam Backup for AWS will save the configured backup policy.

Fixing Network Issues

If the backup policy check reveals that network settings are not configured properly, Veeam Backup for AWS will not be able to launch worker instances and thus perform image-level backup.

To fix network issues:

  1. Close the Policy permissions check window, and then click Finish to close the Add Policy wizard.

Veeam Backup for AWS will save the configured backup policy.

  1. To prevent the backup policy from failing, disable it. For details, see Disabling and Enabling Backup Policies.
  2. Depending on the error message received after the backup policy check, do the following:
  • Make sure that network settings are configured for each AWS Region selected at step 3.2. For information on how to configure network settings for AWS Regions, see Configuring Worker Instance Settings.
  • Make sure that VPCs specified in network settings for AWS Regions have access to the required AWS services. The required AWS services are listed in the Requirements section.
  1. After network issues are fixed, you can enable the backup policy. For details, see Disabling and Enabling Backup Policies.
I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

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