Getting Started

This article covers the process of adding a Cloud Service Provider to your Veeam Backup and Replication environment.

Step 1. Launch Service Provider Wizard

To launch the Service Provider wizard, open the Veeam Backup and Replication Console and do one of the following:

  • Open the Backup Infrastructure view, select the Service Providers node in the navigation tree and click Add Provider from the ribbon.

  • Open the Backup Infrastructure view, right-click the Service Providers node in the navigation tree and select Add Service Provider.

  • Open the Backup Infrastructure view. Select the Service Providers node in the navigation pane, right click in the working area and click Add Service Provider

Step 2. Specify Cloud Gateway Settings

At the Service Provider step of the wizard, specify settings for the cloud gateway:

  • Specify the DNS name or IP address field: enter

  • In the Description field, provide a description (eg. Hosted Network Cloud)

  • In the Port field, leave the default of 6180

Step 3. Verify SSL Certificate and Specify User Account Settings

  • At the top of the wizard window, Veeam Backup & Replication displays information about the SSL certificate obtained from Hosted Network. You can view the certificate settings and verify the SSL certificate. To view the SSL certificate, click the certificate link.

  • From the Credentials list, select credentials for the tenant account that Hosted Network has provided to you. If you have not set up credentials beforehand, click Add on the right to add necessary credentials.

Step 4. Enumerate Cloud Repository Resources

At the Resources step of the wizard, Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically enumerate resources provided to the tenant on the cloud repository and display the results in the wizard window.

Enumeration of storage resources on the cloud repository may take some time.

  • Wait for the processing to complete and verify the storage quantity matches your order

  • Click Next

Step 5. Network Extension

The Network Extension step of the wizard deploys the Veeam Network Extension Appliance to your virtual infrastructure. This appliance provides connectivity between the production site and replica site when a partial failover is performed.

  • Click the Edit button and specify the Host, Storage and Network to attach the appliance to. The attached network needs to be network that your replicated VMs exist on.

  • If there is no DHCP available on the network, click the Configure button to customise the IP settings of the appliance and specify an IP, subnet and gateway that can communicate with your VMs.

  • Click the Apply button and wait for deployment to complete

If you are replicating VMs from multiple VLANs or subnets on different VMware port groups, multiple extension appliances can be deployed.

Please reach out to us if this is the case as custom configuration will be required on the Hosted Network side to support this

Step 6. Verify Results

At the Apply step of the wizard, Veeam Backup & Replication will save information about resources available from Hosted Network. Wait for the required operations to complete and click Next to continue.

Step 7. Finish

At the Summary step of the wizard, complete the procedure of SP adding.

  • Review the configuration information on the added SP.

  • Click Finish to exit the wizard.

  • A brief rescan job will run on the service provider. Click Close when complete.


Next Steps

Now that you've setup Hosted Network as a service provider, you'll be able to select Cloud Connect as a target during creation of a replication job.
