Configuring an Azure SQL Instance

You must add the SQL instance that you want to protect to a SQL server.

Before You Begin

Log on to the Microsoft Azure portal using your Administrator login credentials.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client.
  2. Right-click the SQL Server, and then click Properties.

    The SQL Server Properties dialog box appears.

  3. On the Cloud Configuration tab, enter the Storage Connection String and Azure SQL Server Account credentials that you need to access data on the Azure cloud.

    For instructions about accessing this information from the Azure portal, see SQL Server Properties (Cloud Configuration).

  4. Click OK.
  5. To the SQL server, add the Azure instance that you want to protect. Verify that the name of the instance that you are adding matches the instance name on the Azure cloud.

    For instructions about adding a new instance to a SQL server, see Manually Discovering SQL Instances.
