Step 6. Specify Credentials
[This step is available only if you have selected to restore data on local users.]
At the Credentials step of the wizard, select an account with administrative privileges that will be used to connect to the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance after the configuration restore finishes. You have the following options:
- Select an existing account with administrative privileges that was created on the appliance whose configuration you restore. In this case, AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication will validate the specified credentials against the credentials stored in the configuration backup.
- Select a new account, that is, an account that is not present in the configuration backup. In this case, AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication will create a new local user account and assign administrative privileges to it.
If you have not added the credentials beforehand, click Manage accounts or Add to add the necessary credentials. For more information on adding credentials, see the Credentials Manager section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
After you click Next, the restore process will start. You will not be able to stop the process or edit the restore settings.
