problems adding azure blob storage account

Post by agrob »

Good Day

When i try to add a new object storage repository -> azure blob storage, i get the following error message under the account settings:

"Azure Cloud Connection has returned an untrusted certificate"

Veeam does not display the certificate. Time on the Server is correct.
How can i troubleshoot/fix this?
Thanks

We will need to see debug logs first. Can you open a ticket with our support team and provide its number here? Thanks!

Problem solved. Veeam Backup Server was not able to connect to Microsoft PKI site to check Certificate. I thought that proxy server specified in the azure blob storage repository would do all the needed connections. once veeam backup server was able to check the certificate, it worked

Hi Silvia,

The initial poster did not mention resolution details during the conversation with our support engineer, so please open a support case (don't forget to let us know your support case ID) and work with them since your root cause may differ.

Thanks

Sure, it may differ however is it possible to know the most common cause? I think it could be the same in many cases.
Thanks anyway

The solution in our case was to grant the veeam backup server access to the internet to check crl. if first thought that the server which acts as gateway server for the azure repository just need access to it and to check the crl. but this was not enough -> just make sure that the backup server itself (management gui) has internet access. hope this helps

[MERGED] Offsite backup offload to Azure error

Post by leockw »

Hi all,

We have offsite backup file offload to Azure storage, at the beginning is works fine but the last file show the error "Azure Cloud connection has returned an untrusted certificate".

Our environment as following,
Primary job to primary backup repository - VBR server 11
Backup copy job to offsite backup repository - NAS

Scale-out repository – Performance Tier – offsite backup repository
Scale-out repository – Capacity Tier – Microsoft Azure Storage

No matter the performance tier has gateway server or not, it also has the error.

Do anyone experienced this error and how to fix it?

Case# 04990070

Kind Regards,
Leo

As I can see, you have just provided the debug logs for our support team, so give a chance to analyze those and come up with the solution.

Also, you can try the advice given above regarding providing backup server with access to certificate validation point and see whether it makes any difference.

Thanks!

What is the Azure service being called for PKI check? Need to whitelist this in the firewall in a segmented environment and having the same error. Not sure what to reference as there is no such thing as "Microsoft PKI Server."

Hello,
and welcome to the forums.

It's a normal certificate check. If you open the certificate of of the Azure blob storage (<youraccount>.blob.core.windows.net), you can see the certificate authority. It has nothing to do with Microsoft.

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/micro ... -worldwide might help

Best regards,
Hannes

Hi,
We have whitelisted *blob.core.usgovcloudapi.net but still get the untrusted certificate error. Is this checking on port 80 instead of 443? Is there any sort of additional requirement for GovCloud connections? Any way to dig deeper?
Thanks

Hello,
one needs to whitelist the certificate authority (CA) servers. "*blob.core.usgovcloudapi.net" does not sound like CA servers to me.

These are all the URLs that were whitelistd:
crl.entrust.net
crl3.digicert.com
crl4.digicert.com
ocsp.digicert.com
ocsp.entrust.net
and this:
*.blob.core.usgovcloud.api.net (This is the URL the certificate is covering and showing, perhaps not the CA).

From the list provided here:
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/micro ... -worldwide

The certificate shows two CRL distribution list URLs that are not listed anywhere... are these what need white listed?
http://mscrl.microsoft.com/pki/mscorp/c ... A%2001.crl
http://crl.microsoft.com/pki/mscorp/crl ... A%2001.crl

Maybe the issue is the whitelisting requires port 80 open and not only 443 because it is using this cert and we whitelisted these URLs on 443....

hmm, there should be errors in the log. Veeam support can help to find out what's really the issue. Please post the support case number for reference.

Yes, in the Firewall or Proxy or whatever you have in place between your Backup Infrastructure and the internet...
