How to Configure the Amazon Web Services Import Service Role

  • Last updated on

This article refers to the Barracuda Backup firmware version 6.4.05 or newer, VMware and the vSphere Data Recovery API, supported versions of Microsoft Hyper-V, and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Before you can restore VMware and Hyper-V virtual machine (VM) backups to Amazon Web Services (AWS), you must first create the service role vmimport.

You must configure the AWS Import Service Role to restore VMware or Hyper-V machines to an AWS Amazon Machine Image (AMI). If you completed the Configure an Amazon Web Services Import Service Role (Optional) step in the article Amazon Web Services Offsite Replication, you have already configured the AWS Import Service Role.

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) instances are typically separate. AWS requires a role to allow EC2 to access your S3 storage. AWS uses the vmimport service role to provide permissions between EC2 and S3. This step assumes you have not set up the vmimport service role. If you previously set up the vmimport role, you must grant Barracuda Networks access to replicate Barracuda Backup data to AWS.

To create the service role:

  1. Click the following hyperlink: https://console.aws.amazon.com/cloudformation/home?#/stacks/new?stackName=barracuda-vmimport-stack&templateURL=https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/barracuda-templates/vmimport.template

  2. On the Select Template page, verify that Specify an Amazon S3 template URL is selected and that the URL in the text box matches the URL in the following images:

  3. On the Select Template page, click Next.
  4. On the Specify Details page, click Next.
  5. On the Options page, click Next.
  6. On the Review page, select I acknowledge that AWS CloudFormation might create IAM resources with custom names, and then click Create to create the vmimport role in your AWS account:

  7. Once the stack is created, it displays in the table with a status of CREATE_COMPLETE:
