Step 2. Choose Configuration Mode

At the Configuration Mode step of the wizard, choose whether you want to instruct Veeam Backup for AWS to automatically create IAM roles required for the backup appliance configuration, or you want to specify an IAM role created manually.


Consider the following:

  • If you select the Automatic configuration mode, Veeam Backup for AWS will create 2 IAM roles with wide scopes of permissions and capabilities. You can limit permissions assigned to the IAM roles later, or remove the roles and replace them with custom IAM roles created manually.
  • If you select the Manual configuration mode, make sure you have created the required IAM role beforehand as described in section Required IAM Permissions.
