Step 3. Specify Network Settings

At the Network 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 Add.
  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 launch 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 in 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 group to be displayed in the Network Security Group list, it must be created beforehand as described in Microsoft Docs.


If you want worker instances created based on the new worker configuration to process resources that reside in private virtual networks, the selected security group must allow access to storage accounts and Service Bus namespaces created by Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure. You can tell these resources from other Azure resources by the word veeam and the GUID of the backup appliance in their names.

  1. Choose whether you want Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to assign public IP addresses to workers used for file-level recovery operations.
