Challenge

You may use Restore to Microsoft Azure for environments with ExpressRoute or site-to-site VPN connectivity to Azure. In this case, Azure proxy and helper appliances must have private IP addresses only.

Solution

Starting with Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5u4, create the following registry value on the Veeam Backup server prior to starting the restore process.

Key Location: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication
Value Name: AzurePreferPrivateIpAddressesForProxyandLinuxAppliance
Value Type: DWORD (32-Bit) Value
Value Data: 1 (Default: 0)

DNS Requirements

The Veeam Backup server must resolve the Azure Proxy's full DNS name label to an internal IP address on the Azure Virtual Network subnet.

The Azure DNS Name is typically in the format of <AzureDnsLabelName>.<AzureLocation>.cloudapp.net
This can be verified in the configuration of the Azure proxy in Veeam and/or the Azure Portal.
