Step 4. Choose Backup Servers

At the Backup Servers step of the wizard, select a Veeam Backup & Replication server that will manage the process of recovering machines to Microsoft Azure. Note that one recovery location can be associated with one Veeam Backup & Replication server only.

For a Veeam Backup & Replication server to be displayed in the list of available servers, it must be added to Orchestrator as described in section Connecting Veeam Backup & Replication Servers.


  • To restore workloads to Microsoft Azure, you must add a Microsoft Azure compute account to Veeam Backup & Replication. When you add an Azure compute account, Veeam Backup & Replication imports information about subscriptions and resources associated with this account.

If you do not add a compute account to the configuration of a Veeam Backup & Replication server, you will not be able to choose the server when creating a Microsoft Azure recovery location. For more information on adding Microsoft Azure compute accounts, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Microsoft Azure Compute Accounts.

  • The added account must have the permissions required to access Microsoft Azure resources. For more information, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Creating Custom Role for Azure Account.
