Step 4. Specify Azure Subscription and Region

[This step applies only if you have selected the Restore to a new location, or with different settings option at the Restore Mode step of the wizard]

At the Subscription step of the wizard, do the following:

  1. From the Subscription drop-down list, select a Microsoft Azure subscription that will be used to manage the restored Azure VM.

For a subscription to be displayed in the list of available subscriptions, it must be associated with the tenant to which the service account specified at step 3 of the wizard belongs, as described in Microsoft Docs.

  1. From the Region drop-down list, select the target region where the restored Azure VM will operate.

If the selected region differs from the original location of Azure VM, Veeam Backup & Replication will raise a warning notifying that the locations do not match. Click Yes to acknowledge the warning. Otherwise, you will not be able to proceed with the wizard.


Data transfer to a new location may require additional costs and may take more time to complete.
