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.
You can make the change by clicking the VM and then clicking the Public IP address/DNS name label. Then click the “All settings button” and make the list appear to the right of the window. In this list, find the “Configuration” tab and click on it.
This will open the configuration window, here you can set the customized DNS name label.
This concludes the guide, by doing these steps you can setup your Veeam cloud connect for the enterprise in the Azure portal. If you still have any queries or questions, feel free to contact our experts and professionals.
