Specify credentials of the user account for connecting the backup server. Note that the user name should be specified in the DOMAIN\USERNAME format.


The account must have local Administrator permissions on the backup server and on all servers that run backup infrastructure components. For details on required permissions for Veeam backup servers, see Veeam ONE Deployment Guide.

The provided credentials will be used to connect to the backup server and all managed servers in the backup infrastructure:

Veeam Backup & Replication servers (if you use Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager)
Backup proxies
Backup repositories
WAN Accelerators

If the provided user account does not have required permissions on a managed backup infrastructure server, Veeam ONE Monitor will fail to connect to this server. In such a case, you will need to provide custom connection credentials manually, as described in the Changing Connection Settings for Backup Servers section.
