Before you connect an Azure VM to Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure, check the following prerequisites:

The Azure VM must satisfy conditions specified in System Requirements.

The Azure VM must be running.

To connect an Azure VM to Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure:

1.Open the Virtual Machines view.

2.To open the Add Machine window, do one of the following:

Click Add Machine on the ribbon.

In the left pane, right-click the Machines node and choose Add Machine.

3.In the Host field, type a cloud service DNS name.

Alternatively, you can type a cloud service Public Virtual IP address. It is recommended that you specify a reserved IP address. A non-reserved IP address may change when a VM is restarted, and you will need to configure a connection for this VM anew.

4.In the Port field, type the number of a public port configured for the PowerShell Remoting endpoint on the Azure VM.

If you plan to enable SSL encryption for traffic between the Azure VM and Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure, specify an HTTPS port. An endpoint for this port is configured by default when you provision an Azure VM from the gallery.

If you plan to disable encryption for traffic between the Azure VM and Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure, specify an HTTP port. This port is not configured in Azure VM endpoint settings by default, so you must add it manually.

For details on setting Azure VM endpoints and public ports, see How to Set Up Endpoints to a Virtual Machine.

5.In the Use SSL section, specify whether traffic between the Azure VM and Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure must be encrypted with SSL.

To send encrypted traffic, select the Use SSL check box and specify certificate verification settings:

Skip certificate trusted authority verification — clear this check box if Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure must verify digital signature of the Azure service certificate. By default, this option is selected, and Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure  does not perform the certificate authority verification check.

Skip certificate common name verification — select this check box if Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure must not verify the VM hostname against the Azure service certificate.  By default, this option is cleared, and Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure performs the common name verification check.

Skip revocation check — select this check box if Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure must not verify whether the Azure service certificate has been revoked. By default, this option is cleared, and Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure performs the certificate revocation check.

To send unencrypted traffic, clear the Use SSL check box.

6. In the Username and Password fields, specify credentials of the local Administrator on the Azure VM.

The username must be specified in the DOMAIN\USERNAME format for domain accounts or HOST\USERNAME for local accounts.

7.Click OK.
