In this article

    In the Resources section of the Sources step of the wizard, select resources that you want to back up or to exclude from the policy:

    1. Click Select resources to protect.
    2. In the Choose resource protection options window, choose whether you want to back up all Azure resources from the regions selected at the step 3b, or only specific resources.

    If you selected Protect the following resources:

    1. From the Resource type drop-down list, select the necessary type of resources:
    • Subscription — to back up Azure VMs that belong to specific subscriptions.
    • Resource Group — to back up Azure VMs that belong to specific resource groups.
    • Tag — to back up Azure VMs that have specific tags assigned.
    • Virtual Machine — to back up only specific Azure VMs.
    1. From the Name or ID drop-down window, select the necessary item and click Protect.

    Alternatively, you can click Browse to select specific source from the global list, select check boxes next to the necessary VM instances or labels in the list of available resources, and then click Protect.


    If the list does not show the resources that you want to back up, click Rescan to launch the data collection process. As soon as the process is over, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will update the resource list.

    If you still cannot find the necessary resources in the list, make sure that the Microsoft.ManagedServices provider is registered in the subscription to which the resources belong, return to the step 3a and click Rescan in the Choose an Azure account from the available list window. To learn how to register a resource provider, see Microsoft Docs.
