Challenge

When adding an Azure account to Veeam Backup & Replication, you would use the Add > Microsoft Azure compute account... then,  on the Subscription tab of the wizard that opens, select the "Create a new account" option. Doing this will register a new Azure AD Application. The account used to register the AD Application has to have the appropriate permissions. For more information, please review: Adding Microsoft Azure Accounts in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

If you prefer to set up a custom role for Veeam Integration, you can use Azure PowerShell method to create one.

Solution

Steps for creating a custom role can be found in the User Guide here:
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/azure_custom_role.html

More information

For versions of Veeam Backup & Replication prior to v9.5 U4, the following command must be used to manually register the account with Veeam Backup & Replication.

NOTE: Please be aware in versions of Veeam Backup & Replication prior to 9.5 U4, when creating a custom role the password will be stored in the logs in plaintext. More information is available here.
