Re: Add AWS S3 as an external repository

I tried rebooting the server and set the folder to public but no luck. Any thoughts?

Re: Add AWS S3 as an external repository

I am having an issue setting up an external repository to my AWS cloud. Once I get to 'Bucket" I cannot select a Folder. There are no folders available even though I have created one in AWS for my bucket. In fact, no folders are viewable at all for any of my existing buckets. I have tried 4 different regions as well.

I tried rebooting the server and set the folder to public but no luck. Any thoughts?

For that, please use Add Backup Repository > Object storage.

Good to know. Indeed, external repository is a different feature implemented with the different use case in mind (to discover, recover or offload locally backup data produced by Cloud Protection Manager). Thanks!

Indeed - but it was the case since scale-out backup repository was first introduced a few years ago, so no changes in product licensing here.

I used the free Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise Plus limited license (https://www.veeam.com/kb2698) to expose advanced features during my Veeam Agent trial (which ends in three days :() The KB points to another link (which for me no longer shows the license) but you may want to give it a try. IS ure hope it is still avaiabile as my purchasing decision is predicated on the features I tested (free VBR limited Enterprise Plus license plus trial licenses for VAL and VAW.)

In fact, you no longer need "free VBR limited Enterprise Plus license plus" with Update 4 (this was merely a workaround due to VBR, VAW and VAL licensed being product-specific). As of Update 4, when you purchase agents, you will get an Instance license of Enterprise Plus edition that is good for any product - and just install your backup server with one.
