After You Install

To start working with Veeam Backup for AWS, you must perform the initial configuration of the backup appliance. To do that, in a web browser, navigate to the Veeam Backup for AWS web address. The address consists of a public IPv4 address or DNS hostname of the backup appliance and is available over HTTPS only. For more information, see Accessing Veeam Backup for AWS.


Consider the following:

  • If the backup device is deployed without a public IP address, you must establish a connection between the VPC of the appliance and your on-premises network to access Veeam Backup for AWS. For more information, see Configuring Access to Backup Appliances in AWS.
  • Internet Explorer is not supported. To access Veeam Backup for AWS, use Microsoft Edge (latest version), Mozilla Firefox (latest version) or Google Chrome (latest version).

To configure backup appliance settings, complete the Initial Configuration wizard:

  1. Read and accept license agreements.
  2. Choose a configuration mode.
  3. Specify an IAM identity.
  4. Create the default user.
  5. Install a Veeam Backup for AWS license.
  6. Specify a time zone.
  7. Finish working with the wizard.
