Step 2. Specify Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Appliance
At the Backup Appliance step of the wizard, specify a name for the standard backup repository and the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance to whose infrastructure you want to add the repository:
- From the Appliance drop-down list, select the necessary Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance. New standard backup repository will be added to the infrastructure managed by the selected Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance.
For an appliance to be displayed in the Appliance drop-down list, it must be added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure as described in the Adding Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure Appliances section.
- In the Repository name field, enter a name for the repository. The maximum length of the name is 125 characters; all special characters except for ()_-. cannot be used.
Veeam Backup & Replication will assign this name to the folder that is located in the Veeam/Backup folder in Azure container that you will specify at the Container step of the wizard. Backups saved to this folder will be assigned the same access tier (access tier inferred) as specified for the storage account where the created repository will reside.
- In the Description field, enter a description for future reference.
