At the Repository step of the wizard, specify an Amazon S3 bucket and folder where you want Veeam Backup for AWS to store EC2 instance backups.
To specify the Amazon S3 bucket:
- On the right of the Bucket field, click Select.
- In the Buckets window, select an Amazon S3 bucket that you want to use as an S3 repository.
Veeam Backup for AWS displays a list of Amazon S3 buckets to which the IAM role selected at the Account step of the wizard has permissions. You can use the search field to find the necessary bucket by name.
Note that it may take some time for Veeam Backup for AWS to retrieve information about Amazon S3 buckets 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 Buckets window.
To specify a folder in the selected Amazon S3 bucket:
- Select Use existing folder and click Select if you want to use a folder that was associated with another S3 repository that was removed from Veeam Backup for AWS. In the Select folder window, select the necessary folder.
- Select Create new folder and specify a folder name if you want to create a new folder for your S3 repository.
