Step 8. Configure Disk Access Settings

To allow Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure components to use the Azure Queue Storage messaging service for communication, you must add the automatically created disk access resources to both DNS zones created at step 1.

To add a disk access resource to a DNS zone, do the following:

  1. Log in to the Microsoft Azure portal.
  2. Open the Resource group page.
  3. In the Resource list, search for disk access resources that reside in the same region as your backup appliance and are assigned the Veeam backup appliance ID tag.
  4. Click the necessary disk access resource. The Disk Access page will open.
  5. Switch to the Private endpoint connections tab and locate the private endpoint created for disk access. To do that, click the link in the Private endpoint column. The private endpoint for disk access will have the disks value set in the Target sub-resource field.
  6. Navigate to DNS configuration and click Add configuration.
  7. In the Add DNS zone configuration window, do the following:
  1. From the Subscription drop-down list, select the subscription where the DNS zones created at step 1 reside.
  2. From the Private DNS zone drop-down list, select the pair of the privatelink.blob.core.windows.net name and the resource group in which the DNS zone was created. Leave the default settings for the other options in this window.
  3. Click Add.
