Step 6. Specify IP Address Settings
At the IP Assignment step of the wizard, choose whether you want to assign a dynamic or a static (Elastic) public IP address to the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance.
To assign an Elastic IP address, you can either reserve a new address or specify an existing one:
- To reserve a new IP address, select the (create new) option from the Use the following address drop-down list.
- To assign an existing IP address, select it from the Use the following address drop-down list. For an IP address to be displayed in the list of available addresses, it must be allocated to the VPC specified at step 5 of the wizard, as described in AWS Documentation.
For more information on Elastic IP addresses, see AWS Documentation.
After the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance is deployed, Veeam Backup & Replication will use the specified public IP to connect to the appliance. You can change the way Veeam Backup & Replication connects to the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance later, as described in section Editing Appliance Settings.
