Challenge

You would like to move your existing data to the Azure leveraging Azure Data Box offline data transfer products to move large amounts of data. This article guides you through all the requirements you need to meet in order to prepare Azure Data Box for the seeding to the Azure Storage with Veeam Backup & Replication U4.

Solution

Please complete all the steps to successfully add Azure Data Box into Veeam Backup & Replication:

NOTE: Please make sure that your Azure Data Box device supports data upload over REST API. 

1.    Ensure Azure Data Box server DNS name is resolved on Veeam Backup Server and Veeam Gateway server either globally in your organization over you DNS servers or individually on the servers over hosts files:
  • <mydataboxno>.microsoftdatabox.com;
  • blob.<mydataboxno>.microsoftdatabox.com;
  • <storageaccountname>.blob.<mydataboxno>.microsoftdatabox.com
where <mydataboxno> and <storageaccountname> could be found in Azure Data Box web UI (please follow this link for more information)
 
2.    Please download Azure Data Box SSL certificate and import on Veeam Backup Server and Veeam Backup Gateway Sever as described in this link

3.    Please make a copy for C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Backup\AzureStorageRegions.xml and rename to the C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and
       Replication\Backup\AzureStorageRegions.xml_original
(to roll back to the original file)

4.    Find Azure Region you’re not going to use (Azure Government, for instance) in the C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Backup\AzureStorageRegions.xml, modify BlobEndpoint property, as shown
       below, and specify any display name in the Name property (Azure Data Box, for instance):
<Region Id="AzureGovernmentCloud" Name="Azure Databox" Type="Government">
    <BlobEndpoint>.blob.mydataboxno.microsoftdatabox.com</BlobEndpoint>
 </Region>

 
4.    Please add registry key on Veeam Backup Server:
 
Name:  ObjectStorageCRLCheckMode
Type: DWORD. 
Value: 3
Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication\
 
5.    Restart Veeam Backup Service on Veeam Backup Server.
