Connecting to AWS external repository

Post by BassTeQ » May 17, 2019 4:10 am

Hi all,

I'm trying to connect an external repository, however when I try and select the "folder" to save my backups to I can't see it listed?
The folder exists, and visible from the AWS console.

Appreciate any help.

External repository only works with N2Ws Backup & Recovery as explained in our user guide. Could you explain what your goal is? If you want to tier backups to S3, you can do this via Capacity Tier.

Then you can leverage capacity tier to achieve this.

I put the link to the user guide in my previous post. To configure it, you'll have to add a scale-out backup repository and add the object storage to it via the wizard.

I don't have an option to add a scale out repository?

This option is not available in the Standard Edition, so that could be the only reason why you are not seeing it. Otherwise, feel free to contact support for assistance. Thanks!

I'm already backing up to another local location which is managed by veeam, if I just sync that folder to AWS that shouldn't cause any issues?
I'd be able to use those backup files for a restore in case of the local versions weren't available?

How exactly are you planning to sync local folder to object storage? Thanks!
