Step 7. Specify Credentials
At the Credentials step of the wizard, specify credentials of a user account that has administrative privileges on the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance. This can be the administrator account created during the installation of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure or a user account created during further work with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure with Portal Administrator role assigned.
If you have not added the credentials beforehand, click the Manage accounts link or the Add button to add the necessary credentials. For more information on adding credentials, see the Credentials Manager section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is not supported. For more information on where to check MFA settings, see the Configuring MFA Settings section in the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure User Guide.
If you try to add an appliance that runs an outdated version of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure, Veeam Backup & Replication will display a warning notifying that the appliance must be upgraded. Click OK to upgrade the appliance to the latest version of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure that is compatible with the current version of Microsoft Azure Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication.
When you add a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance, Microsoft Azure Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication automatically verifies the certificate. If the verification fails, the appliance will be added as unavailable. If the certificate is valid, Veeam Backup & Replication saves in the configuration database a thumbprint of the web certificate installed on the appliance. When Veeam Backup & Replication connects to the appliance, it uses the saved thumbprint to verify the appliance identity and to avoid the man-in-the-middle attack.
