Step 5. Configure Target Instance Settings

At the Instance step of the wizard, do the following:

  1. In the Instance settings section, you can specify the target AWS Region where a DB instance will host the restored databases and choose the target DB instance. By default, Veeam Backup for AWS uses the original location of the source DB instance and the source instance, if it exists.

You must also specify a database account that Veeam Backup for AWS will use to connect to the DB instance. To do that, click a link in the Credentials field, and provide a name and password of the account in the Specify account username and password window. Note that the specified user must be created on the target DB instance.

  1. In the Database settings section, you can specify a new name for the restored database. To do that, select the database from the list and click Rename. In the Database name window, specify the name and click Apply.
