Configuring Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure

To start working with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure, perform a number of steps for its configuration:

  1. Add Azure accounts to get access to Azure services and resources.
  2. [Optional] Add user accounts to control access to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure.
  3. [Optional] Add backup repositories.
  4. [Optional] Create worker configurations.
  5. [Optional] Configure global retention, email notification and single-sign-on settings.


Even after you add accounts that manage your Azure resources and configure all the necessary settings, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will populate neither the list of Azure VMs nor the list of Azure SQL databases nor the list of Azure file shares on the Resources tab — unless you create backup policies and specify regions where the Azure resources belong, as described in section Performing Backup.
