Accessing Veeam Backup for Google Cloud Platform
To access Veeam Backup for GCP, do the following:
- In a web browser, navigate to the Veeam Backup for GCP web address.
Internet Explorer is not supported. To access Veeam Backup for GCP, use Microsoft Edge (version 40 or later), Mozilla Firefox (version 56 or later) or Google Chrome (version 62 or later).
The address consists of a public IPv4 address or DNS hostname of the backup appliance. Note that the website is available over HTTPS only.
The web browser may display a warning notifying that the connection is untrusted. To eliminate the warning, you can replace the TLS certificate that is currently used to secure traffic between the browser and the backup appliance with a trusted TLS certificate. To learn how to replace certificates, see Replacing Web Certificates.
- In the Username and Password fields, specify credentials of an authorized user.
If you log in for the first time, use credentials of the Default Administrator that was created after the product installation. In future, you can add other users to grant access to Veeam Backup for GCP. For more information, see Adding Backup Administrator Accounts.
If you forgot the password, you can reset it. To do that, click the Forgot password? link and follow the instructions provided in this Veeam KB article.
- Select the Keep me logged in check box to save the specified credentials in a persistent browser cookie so that you do not have to provide credentials every time you access Veeam Backup for GCP in a new browser session.
- Click Login.
If multi-factor authentication (MFA) is enabled for the user, Veeam Backup for GCP will prompt you to enter a code to verify the user identity. In the Verification code field, enter the temporary six-digit code generated by the authentication application running on your trusted device. Then, click Log in.
To log out, at the top right corner of the Veeam Backup for GCP window, click the user name and then click Log out.
