Step 2. Specify Veeam Backup for AWS Appliance and Repository Name
At the Veeam Backup for AWS step of the wizard, specify the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance that will manage the infrastructure to which you want to add a standard backup repository:
- From the Appliance drop-down list, select the necessary Veeam Backup for AWS appliance. A new standard backup repository will be added to the infrastructure managed by the selected Veeam Backup for AWS appliance.
For an appliance to be displayed in the Appliance drop-down list, it must be added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure as described in the Adding Veeam Backup for AWS Appliances section.
- In the Repository name field, enter a name for the repository. The maximum length of the name is 125 characters; all special characters except for !*'()_-. cannot be used.
Veeam Backup & Replication will create a folder with this name in the bucket that you will specify at the Bucket step of the wizard. The backed-up data will be stored in the created folder.
- In the Description field, enter a description for future reference.
