Step 10. Finish Working with Wizard

In this article

    At the Summary step of the wizard,  it is recommended that you run the backup policy configuration check before you click Finish.

    The configuration check will verify whether specified IAM roles have all the required permissions, and networks settings are configured properly to launch worker instances. To run the check, click Test Configuration. Veeam Backup for AWS will display the Test policy configuration window where you can track the progress and view the results of the check. If the IAM role permissions are insufficient or policy settings are not configured properly, the check will complete with errors, and the list of permissions that must be granted to the IAM role and policy configuration issues will be displayed in the Test policy configuration window.

    You can grant the missing permissions to the IAM role using the AWS Management Console or instruct Veeam Backup for AWS to do it.

    To let Veeam Backup for AWS grant the missing permissions:

    1. In the Test policy configuration window, click the Grant link.
    2. In the Grant Permissions window, provide one-time access keys of an IAM user that is authorized to update permissions of IAM roles, and then click Apply.

    The IAM user must have the following permissions:

    "iam:CreatePolicy",

    "iam:GetRole",

    "iam:GetPolicy",

    "iam:AttachRolePolicy"

    Note

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

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

    Veeam Backup for AWS will save the configured backup policy.
