The Backup Server step of the wizard is available if you have chosen to store backup files on a Veeam Backup & Replication repository.

Specify settings for the Veeam backup server that manages the target backup repository:

1.In the Veeam backup server name or IP address field, specify a DNS name or IP address of the Veeam backup server.

2.Select the Specify your personal credentials check box. In the Username and Password fields, specify a user name and password of the account that has access to this backup repository. Permissions on the backup repository managed by the target Veeam backup server must be granted beforehand. To learn more, see Veeam Endpoint Backup User Guide, section Setting Up User Permissions on Backup Repositories.

If you do not select the Specify your personal credentials check box, Veeam Endpoint Backup will connect to the backup repository using the NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account of the computer where the product is installed. You can use this scenario if the endpoint is joined to the Active Directory domain. In this case, you can simply add the computer account (DOMAIN\COMPUTERNAME$) to an AD group and grant access rights on the backup repository to this group.

Setting access permissions on the backup repository to Everyone is equal to granting access rights to the Everyone Microsoft Windows group (Anonymous users are excluded). If you have set such permissions on the backup repository, you can omit specifying credentials. However, this scenario is recommended for demo environments only.

3.In the Port field, specify a number of the port over which Veeam Endpoint Backup must communicate with the backup repository. By default, Veeam Endpoint Backup uses port 10001.


If you specify a DNS name of the Veeam backup server, make sure that the Veeam backup server name is resolved into IPv4 address on the endpoint where Veeam Endpoint Backup is installed. The Veeam Backup Service in Veeam Backup & Replication listens on IPv4 addresses only. If the Veeam backup server name is resolved into IPv6 address, Veeam Endpoint Backup will fail to connect to the Veeam backup server.
