Adding Backup Repositories

In this article

    You can use only existing Amazon S3 buckets as backup repositories. Before you add an Amazon S3 bucket as a backup repository, check limitations for backup repositories.


    A backup repository must not be managed by multiple backup appliances simultaneously. Retention sessions running on different backup appliances may corrupt backup files stored in the repository, which may result in unpredictable data loss.

    To add a backup repository, complete the following steps:

    1. Launch the Add Repository wizard.
    2. Specify a backup repository name and description.
    3. Configure backup repository settings.
    4. Enable data encryption for the backup repository.
    5. Finish working with the wizard.
