When connecting to the Veeam console, it is possible to activate the double authentication. It is highly recommended to activate this new feature.
From the Veeam console, open the menu and click on Users and Roles.
Click on Add then add user account. Two-factor can’t be enable for the security groups. Select the users and check Require two-factor authentification for interactive logon.
Select the group administrators and other Security groups then click on Remove. Click on OK.
I need to add active directory user account used by Veeam service. Check This is a service account option.
Connect to the console using the previously added account (svc_tanium for me). A new window appears with a QRCODE. With Microsoft Authenticator or the application of Google, add a new account and scan the QRCODE. Click on Next when account has been added.
Enter the code present in the application.
