Recipe: Add a New Quantum Dxi Appliance

Expected deliverables:

A Veeam Backup & Replication Quantum Dxi Repository where Veeam keeps backup files, VM copies and metadata for replicated VMs.

Time to complete: 5 minutes


  • A Quantum DXi already configured as per the vendor best practices.
  • A linux server that will be configured as repository.

Before you start:

The Veeam software is automatically uploaded and installed by the Veeam Backup and Replication server.


You have a Veeam Backup and Replication server installed. You have already added a Linux Server in the Backup infrastructure. If you have not added a server to the backup infrastructure, please refer to “Adding Linux Servers” recipe.


  1. Open the Veeam Backup & Replication Console.
  2. Select Backup Infrastructure on the bottom left menu.
  3. Right click Backup Repositories and choose Add Backup Repository.
  4. Select Deduplicating Storage Appliance and Quantum DXi
  5. Specify a name and optional description for the repository and click Next.
  6. In the Server step, select the Linux server that was added in the Backup Infrastructure. Click Next.
  7. In the Repository step, specify the path to the folder that will be used as repository. Check the Use fast cloning on XFS volumes option, and change the number of concurrent tasks or limit the data rate if required. Click Next.
  8. In the Mount Server step, confirm or change the mount server settings, then click Next.
  9. Review the settings and confirm by clicking Apply. If you’re adding a repository with existing backups, flag the setting to import them automatically.
  10. After installation and registration is completed, click Finish and the Quantum DXi repository is ready to use.
