Direct Restore to Azure functionality does not support Microsoft Azure Government Cloud.


Microsoft Azure Government Cloud requires a different Azure environment configuration that Veeam Backup & Replication does not implement out of the box.


To enable experimental support of Microsoft Azure Government Cloud in Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3, follow these steps:

  1. Download and apply the registry file
  2. Restart Veeam Backup Service (note that it will interrupt all running jobs)
  3. Add an Azure account

More Information

To revert your Veeam Backup & Replication installation to support classic Microsoft Azure Cloud, remove the following registry values under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication:

Then, restart Veeam Backup service to apply changes.

Please be aware that we’re making changes which will restrict access to product updates for users without an active contract.
