Configuring Backup Repositories

Backup repositories are used to store organization backups created with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365.

The following types of repositories are supported:

  • A local folder on a backup proxy. The default backup repository is the C:\VeeamRepository directory on the localhost.
  • Direct Attached Storage (DAS) connected to the backup server, including external USB/eSATA drives and raw device mapping (RDM) volumes.
  • Storage Area Network (SAN). The backup server must be connected to the SAN fabric via hardware or virtual HBA, or software iSCSI initiator.
  • SMB 3.0 share (experimental support).
  • Azure and/or AWS virtual machines. For more information on deploying the solution on either of these platforms, see Deploying on Azure and AWS.

Storage volumes that host the archive repository must be formatted with NTFS or ReFS.

Configuring Backup Repositories Important!

  • Consider that Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 SP1 do not support the SMB 3.0 share as a storage system. To use the SMB 3.0 share as a storage system, make sure you are using Microsoft Windows 8 or Microsoft Windows 2012 or higher.
  • To set a network drive\UNC path to the repository on a network share, ensure that the Local System account has sufficient rights (I.e. Read and Write) to access the corresponding network share.
