Configuring Network Settings for VM Backup

To allow Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to back up Azure VMs in a private environment, perform the following steps:

  1. Create private DNS zones.
  2. Add a custom worker configuration.
  3. Add the VNets of the backup appliance and worker instances to the private DNS zones.
  4. Configure network settings for backup appliance.
  5. Create and run a backup policy to automatically create storage accounts and private endpoints.
  6. Configure automatically created private endpoints.
  7. Run the backup policy to automatically create disk access resources.
  8. Configure settings for the automatically created disk access resources.
  9. Run the backup policy to check whether the configuration was successful.

Important

Consider the following:

  • To allow Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to perform backup to repositories, you will also need to configure network settings described in section Configuring Network Settings for Storage Accounts.
  • Consider that Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will create disk access resources only if your backup appliance is associated with the same subscription as the processed VM. Otherwise, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will connect to snapshots of processed VMs using public access.
