Step 3. Specify Network Settings

In this article

    At the Network Settings step of the wizard, do the following:

    1. Select a network and subnet to which you want to connect worker instances created based on the new worker configuration. You can either use an existing virtual network or create a new one.

    To create a new network:

    1. Click New.
    2. In the Create Network window, specify names and ranges of IP addresses for the new virtual network and the new subnet, and click OK.

    To specify IP address ranges, use the CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) notation. For more information on building networks in Microsoft Azure, see Microsoft Docs.



    • The specified subnet address range must have at least one free IP address — Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will deploy and simultaneously run as many worker instances as many free IP addresses there are in the subnet range.
    • It is recommended to configure a service endpoint (routing) to the Microsoft.Storage service. The virtual network settings can be specified on the Microsoft Azure portal. For more information on virtual network service endpoints, see Microsoft Docs.
    1. Select a security group that will be associated with the specified subnet. For a security group to be displayed it must be created in advance as described in Microsoft Docs.
    2. Choose whether you want Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to assign public IP addresses to workers used for file-level recovery operations. Without this option worker instances will be available only within the network specified at the step 1b.
