At the Specify Resources step of the wizard, select EC2 instances that you want to back up.
You can back up all EC2 instances from AWS regions selected at the Regions step of the wizard, or select only the necessary EC2 instances.
- To back up all EC2 instances, select All resources.
Mind that if a new EC2 instance is launched in one of the selected regions after the backup policy is created, Veeam Backup for AWS will automatically update the backup policy settings to include the new EC2 instance.
- To back up only the necessary EC2 instances:
- Select Protect the following resources.
- Click Add and specify the scope of EC2 instances to back up. You can use the following options:
Veeam Backup for AWS will open the Instances window where you can select EC2 instances by name, instance ID or type.
Veeam Backup for AWS will open the Tags window where you can select EC2 instances by the assigned AWS tag.
Note that it may take some time for Veeam Backup for AWS to retrieve information about EC2 instances from AWS. If for some reason Veeam Backup for AWS fails to retrieve information automatically, click the Rescan link at the bottom left corner of the Instances or Tags window.
If you want to remove some objects from the scope, select check boxes next to the necessary EC2 instance or AWS tag and click Remove.
