How to configure Veeam Agent with Work or School Account

Challenge

When you configure a Veeam Agent backup job, the Microsoft OneDrive dialog window does not allow changes and closes automatically. As a result, it is impossible to change the account used to access Microsoft OneDrive as a backup target.

Cause

Such behavior occurs in case there is a Microsoft account added in Settings > Accounts > Access work or school.

Solution

There are 2 options to use Microsoft OneDrive as a backup target when configuring a Veeam Agent backup job:

  1. Use the account that is already set in Settings > Accounts > Access work or school to store backups on Microsoft OneDrive.
  2. Disconnect the account that is set in Settings > Accounts > Access work or school. Veeam Agent allows to change accounts if the computer is disconnected from the account. Configure the Veeam Agent backup job, then re-connect the account.
