Is it possible to backup my 365 data to a repository on another machine that is setup in Veeam Backup and Replication? The host I have for Veeam runs in production and my backup environment has a lot more free space that I can allocate for these backups. The drop down is for my machine, it would be nice to see my repositories.
Note that an office 365 repository is not the same as a VBR repository so at this point in time it makes no sense to store the data on a VBR repository. But you could point it to an SMB share on that same volume as where your VBR repository resides

If the VBR repo is a Windows repo, couldn't the folder for the repo be shared and then mapped as a local drive on the machine running VO365? It would look like local storage at that point, right? But then all backups would be right in the same spot. Or maybe worst case share subfolder underneath the VBR repo.

I had this working once, but I uninstalled the Veeam for Office 365 console and reinstalled and I can't get it to connect to a mapped drive anymore. I keep getting "Folder does not exist", I've double checked permissions but maybe I'm missing something.

I think the issue might be that with the reinstallation the config file is lost and the database is not recognized anymore. I am not sure if they can solve this but I would advise to create a support call and see if they know how to do this
