Step 4. Specify Password

At the Password step of the wizard, specify the password used to encrypt the configuration backup file.

If you do not remember the password, you can restore configuration backup data without providing it. To do that, click the I forgot the password link and follow the instructions provided in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Decrypting Data Without Password.


To restore configuration data without a password, the following requirements must be met:

  • You must have either the Veeam Universal License or a legacy socket-based license (Enterprise edition or higher) installed on the backup server.
  • The backup server must be connected to Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager.
