Any pointers much appriciated.

I know that there's a plugin for this (https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/vcenter-portal/), but I haven't had the chance to try it out yet. It looks promising though.

Thank you for the feedback.

What I am trying to acheive is to backup my VMs to a ASW Server in the cloud. Veeam replication require you to replicate any backup job back to the vCenter you are using. Therefore I need to see the ASW Veeam backup server instance in my vCenter so I can select its storage to backup to.

I am running Veeam version 9
vCenter server 5.5
Windows Server 2012
