Step 8. Specify User Credentials
At the Guest OS step of the wizard, do the following:
- From the Create the following administrator credentials drop-down list, select a user whose credentials will be used by Veeam Backup & Replication to create the Default Admin account on the backup appliance.
For a user to be displayed in the Create the following administrator credentials drop-down list, it must be added to the Credentials Manager.
If you have not added a user to the Credential Manager beforehand, you can do it without closing the New Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Appliance wizard. To add a new user, click either the Manage accounts link or the Add button, and then specify a user name, password and description in the Credentials window.
When you specify user credentials, Veeam Backup & Replication automatically verifies the provided password. If the password does not meet the Microsoft security requirements, or if the password is present in any of the Ubuntu 22.04 LTS cracklib dictionaries, you will get an error message notifying you that the password cannot be verified.
- In the Use the following key pair field, select a key pair that will be used to authenticate against the backup appliance.
For a key pair to be displayed in the list of available key pairs, it must be created in Microsoft Azure as described in Microsoft Docs. If you have not created a key pair beforehand, you can do it without closing the New Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure wizard. To do that, click Add and, in the New Key Pair window, specify a name for the key pair and the path to a folder where the pair will be located.
