Challenge

Azure VMware Solution by CloudSimple is a vSphere environment running on Microsoft Azure hardware. This environment requires specific preparations to allow Veeam Backup & Replication v.9.5 Update 4b or later to work with it. Besides the challenge listed below, you can interact with it in Veeam Backup & Replication like any other vSphere environment to backup, restore and replicate VM workloads.

Azure VMware Solution by CloudSimple uses standard VMware vSphere, vSAN and NSX version to operate the service. General compatibility is given for any Veeam Backup & Replication version that supports the vSphere version operated by Azure VMware Solution by CloudSimple.

Consider that Veeam has tested Azure VMware Solution by CloudSimple only with Backup & Replication v9.5 Update 4b and therefore this version or later is recommended.

The Virtual lab creation wizard is affected due to impossibility to select a network in the Networking step when using either the Basic single-host or Advanced single-host option.

Cause

Azure VMware Solution by CloudSimple does not allow to create local networks.

Solution

As a workaround, at the Networking step, you can use the Advanced multi-host option with distributed switches. For more information, see this Veeam article.
