Adding Accounts

To add auxiliary backup accounts to the backup configuration, do the following:

  1. Open the Organizations view.
  2. In the inventory pane, right-click an organization and select Manage backup accounts.

Mind that the Manage backup account option is unavailable for organizations with enabled security defaults.

Adding Accounts 

  1. In the Backup Accounts Manager window, click Select.
  2. In the Select Group window, select a security group with accounts that you want to use as auxiliary backup accounts and click Add.

Consider the following:

  • The entire security group will be granted the Site Collection Administrator role. If a user ceases to be a member of the selected group, the role is automatically revoked for this user.
  • It is recommended not to select the All Users security group. Instead, you can create a new security group and populate this group with user accounts that you want to use during a backup session of Microsoft SharePoint data.
  • For more information on how to create a new security group, see this Microsoft article.
  • Mail-enabled security groups are not supported.
  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 does not use an account under which you add your Office 365 organization.
  1. In the Select accounts and configure their passwords list, select check boxes next to accounts that you want to add as backup applications.
  2. In the Password column, click Not configured.

Adding Accounts 

  1. In the Add Password window, enter the password for the account and click OK.

Make sure to provide an AD application password instead of a user account password when adding MFA-enabled accounts.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:


I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
