Step 8. Add Veeam Backup & Replication Server to Backup Infrastructure

In this article

    After you add the Red Hat Virtualization Manager VM, you can configure the connection between Veeam Backup for RHV and Veeam Backup & Replication.

    To add the Veeam Backup & Replication server to the Veeam Backup for RHV backup infrastructure, do the following:

    1. At the main panel of the web console, click Step 8. Add Veeam Backup & Replication Server to Backup Infrastructure and select Manage Backup Server.

    Step 8. Add Veeam Backup & Replication Server to Backup Infrastructure 

    1. Click Add on the toolbar.
    2. In the Add VBR Server setting window, specify connection settings for the Veeam Backup & Replication server:
    1. In the DNS Name or IP field, specify the FQDN or IP address of the Veeam Backup & Replication server.

    The hostname of the Veeam Backup & Replication server must be resolvable on the Veeam Backup for RHV server. For more information, see Troubleshooting VB for RHV Deployment.

    1. In the Port field, specify a port which will be used by the backup server to communicate with the RHV host. Default port: 10006.
    2. [Optional] In the Description field, specify a description for the Veeam Backup & Replication server.
    3. In the User Name and Password fields, specify credentials to connect to the Veeam Backup & Replication server.
    4. Click Add.

    Step 8. Add Veeam Backup & Replication Server to Backup Infrastructure 

    You can add only one Veeam Backup & Replication server to the Veeam Backup for RHV backup infrastructure.

    Backup files are stored in the backup repository, in the folder with the same name as the user name used in the Veeam Backup & Replication server settings. If you change the user name for the Veeam Backup & Replication server, on the next run of a backup job a new backup chain will be created. Old backup chain will remain in the folder created for the previous user.

    If you want to continue the old backup chain, do the following:

    1. In the backup repository server, transfer old backup files to the folder with new backup files.
    2. In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, rescan the backup repository. For more information, see the Rescanning Backup Repositories section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
