To connect to the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 service provider server using Veeam Explorer tool, make sure that you have installed Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange:
- As part of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3
- As part of Veeam Backup for Office 365 1.5
You must also provide your service provider with your Microsoft organization credentials so that the service provider can connect to your Exchange organization and add it to the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 service provider scope. You can use the same credentials later when adding a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 service provider server to the Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange scope. See Adding Backups to the Veeam Explorer Scope.
If you plan to allow your Service Provider to access your environment to perform hybrid organizations backups, you should provide your on-premises Exchange connection settings such as the server name, server ports, and credentials.
Tenants are not required to purchase any license to communicate with service providers. With no license installed, tenants are still able to add a service provider to their backup infrastructure to get the full range of available services. See Adding a Service Provider Without a License.
