Step 3. Specify Amazon Account Settings

At the Account step of the wizard, specify connection settings:

  1. From the AWS account drop-down list, select the user credentials to access the archive repository resources. The user whose credentials you want to use must have permissions listed in the Required Permissions section.

If you have not added credentials beforehand in the Cloud Credentials Manager, click Manage cloud accounts or Add to add the necessary credentials. For more information on adding credentials, see the Access Keys for AWS Users section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

  1. From the AWS region drop-down list, select the AWS Region in which your Veeam Backup for AWS appliance resides.


If you have only one IAM role on the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance, make sure that this role has permissions listed in the Repository IAM Role Permissions section in the Veeam Backup for AWS guide. If you have multiple roles, you will be provided to select the role at the IAM Role step of the wizard. The selected IAM role must have the permissions referred earlier.
