Backing up several AWS accounts?

Post by nhwanderer »

Hi all,

We have around 6 AWS accounts in an AWS organization structure, each serving as a sandbox or production environment for a different group. I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to backup resources in these accounts from a single Veeam Backup for AWS console. It looks like the structure is there to backup a single remote account, but I can't figure out how to backup several. Guidance would be very appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi,

This is possible by adding additional IAM roles from another account (external account). For more information, see the user guide.

I'm also having a hard time finding this info or an install guide when using multiple accounts. It's all very vague, is there a blog or set of videos that goes over everything. This is bound to be a common requirement.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the feedback.

Right now, there are 3 steps that u need to follow which are mentioned in user guide. You'll have to follow all the steps listed on the AWS documentation and once this external account is created, you can add it to VB for AWS.

We'll look into a way to enhance the documentation to make it more clear.
