To create a replication job utilizing the DSM Veaam Cloud Connect Service Provider established in the previous steps, perform the following actions.

  1. Launch Veeam Backup & Replication Console from the Client (Source) location:
  2. Log into Veeam Backup & Replication Console with the appropriate credentials:

  14. Click Next >

  15. Map the source VM network to the Cloud VM network.
  16. Click Add...
  17. Assign both the Source network and Target network to the appropriate VM network mapping. This will be unique to your implementation.
  18. Click Browse...to select Source and Target
    Click OK

  27. Select Enable application-aware processing if VM’s being replicated require application-consistent backups.
