Step 6. Specify User Credentials

At the Credentials step of the wizard, specify a user whose credentials Veeam Backup & Replication will use to connect to the backup appliance.

For a user to be displayed in the Credentials list, it must be added to the Credentials Manager. If you have not added a user to the Credentials Manager beforehand, you can do it without closing the New Veeam Backup for GCP Appliance wizard. To add a new user, click either the Manage accounts link or the Add button and specify a user name, password and description in the Credentials window.


The specified user must have multi-factor authentication (MFA) disabled and the Portal Administrator role assigned.


Step 6. Specify User Credentials 


As soon as you click Next, Veeam Backup & Replication will verify connection to the specified backup appliance. If the version of the appliance is not compatible with the Veeam Backup & Replication version or if the TLS certificate used to connect to the Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Web UI is not trusted, you will receive a warning. To learn how to eliminate this warning, see Eliminating Warnings.
