After You Install

To start working with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure, you must perform the initial configuration of the backup appliance:

  1. In a web browser, navigate to the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure web address.

The address consists of a public IPv4 address or DNS hostname of the backup appliance. Note that the website is available over HTTPS only.


Internet Explorer is not supported. To access Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure, use Microsoft Edge (latest version), Mozilla Firefox (latest version) or Google Chrome (latest version).

  1. In the Username and Password fields, specify credentials of the Administrator account that was created during product installation. In future, you can add other users to grant access to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure. For more information, see Adding User Accounts.
  1. Read and accept the Veeam license agreement, Veeam licensing policy, 3rd party components and software license agreements. If you reject the agreements, you will not be able to continue installation.


To increase the security of the Administrator account, it is recommended that you enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) for the account after you first log in to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure. To learn how to enable MFA, see Enabling Multi-Factor Authentication.

  1. [Optional] Generate a new certificate for Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure as described in section Replacing Security Certificates.

Consider that after you complete the initial configuration, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will automatically check if any Veeam and Ubuntu updates are available and install these updates on the backup appliance.
