Customize DNS Name Label

The public IP address of your VM in Azure is set by DHCP. This implies that your VM’s IP address can automatically change whenever the VM is stopped and later started; for instance, in the case of maintenance. This is why it’s highly recommended to customize your DNS name label so the Veeam backup repository doesn’t have to be reconfigured every time the IP address is automatically changed.
