Virtual Network Configuration Backup
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure performs virtual network configuration backup in the following way:
- Sends API requests to Microsoft Azure to retrieve the virtual network configuration data, and saves this data in the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure database.
To back up virtual network configurations of Azure subscriptions added to a backup policy, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure uses permissions of a service account specified in the backup policy settings. The virtual network configuration data is collected for the Azure AD tenant to which the specified service account belongs.
- Creates a configuration record for each pair of an Azure AD tenant and an Azure subscription whose virtual network configuration data is being backed up. Every time the virtual network configuration backup policy runs, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure updates the record to create a new restore point for the virtual network configurations.
