Step 8. Finish Working with Wizard

At the Summary step of the wizard, complete the procedure of backup policy configuration:

  1. Review backup policy settings.

If necessary, you can use the Copy to clipboard button to copy and save backup policy settings for future reference.

  1. 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.

Running Backup Policy Check

To run the backup policy check, click the permissions check link.

In the Policy permissions check window, Veeam Backup for AWS will display the progress and results of the performed check. If IAM roles have insufficient permissions or network settings are not configured properly, Veeam Backup for AWS will complete the check with the Failed status.

Granting Missing Permissions to IAM Roles

You can grant the missing permissions to IAM roles in the AWS Management Console manually. Alternatively, you can instruct Veeam Backup for AWS to do it for you.

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

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

Step 8. 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.
