Step 7. Configure Repository Settings
At the Repositories step of the wizard, a list of all standard and archive repositories already configured on the selected Veeam Backup for AWS appliance will be displayed. After you complete the wizard, Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically add these repositories to the backup infrastructure.
You will be able to use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to perform entire EC2 instance restore, DB instance restore, Aurora DB cluster restore and EFS file systems restore only — unless you specify the following configuration settings for each repository whose restore points you want to use to recover backed-up data:
The following procedure applies only to standard repositories. For archive repositories, there is no possibility to specify any configuration settings.
- In the Repositories list, select the necessary repository and click Edit.
- In the Repository window:
- From the Credentials drop-down list, select one-time access keys of an IAM user whose permissions will be used to access the repository. For more information on the required permissions, see Permissions.
For one-time access keys of an IAM user to be displayed in the Credentials list, they must be added to the Cloud Credentials Manager. If you have not added the keys to the Cloud Credentials Manager beforehand, you can do it without closing the Repository window. To do that, click either the Manage accounts link or the Add button, and specify the access and secret key in the Credentials window.
- From the Use the following gateway server for the Internet access drop-down list, select a gateway server that will be used to provide access to the repository.
For a gateway server to be displayed in the Use the following gateway server for the Internet access drop-down list, it must be added to the backup infrastructure. For more information on gateway servers, see Architecture Overview.
- If encryption is enabled for the repository, the following scenarios may apply:
- If data in the repository is encrypted using a password, select the Use the following password for encrypted backups check box. From the drop-down list, select the password that is used to encrypt data. Veeam Backup & Replication will use the specified password to decrypt backup files stored in this repository.
For a password to be displayed in the Use the following password for encrypted backups drop-down list, it must be added to the backup infrastructure as described in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Creating Passwords. If you have not added the necessary password beforehand, you can do it without closing the Repository window. To add the password, click either the Manage cloud accounts link or the Add button and specify a hint and the password in the Password window.
If you do not specify a password for a standard repository with encryption enabled, you will have to decrypt data stored in this repository manually as described in section Decrypting Backups.
- If data in the repository is encrypted with a KMS key, Veeam Backup & Replication will show the used KMS key in the Perform AWS encryption with the following KMS key drop-down list but will not allow to change it.
After you finish working with the wizard, all the added repositories will be displayed on the Backup Infrastructure view, under the External Repositories node.
If some of the repositories are already added to the backup infrastructure of another backup server, you will be prompted to claim the ownership of these repositories. To learn how to claim the ownership, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Ownership.
