I’m trying to restore a Veeam backup from Capacity tier (S3) into an EC2 instance in AWS.
However, I’m facing a problem with the proxy instance. Once I start the restore process, the proxy instance is created, but after abou a minute I get an error:
“Preparing proxy appliance VM Error: The destination would not be a correct SSH server.”
I tried ssh to the proxy, but the connection gets rejected, while connections to other hosts in the same subnet with the same security groups are successful.
So I manually created an instance using the same settings Veeam uses for the proxy, same subnet, security groups, AMI, and found that connections are successful, but only a few minutes after instance creation with that particular AMI Veeam chooses for the proxy instance (aws-parallelcluster-3.1.4-ubuntu-2004-lts).
Now, the question is, is there a way to configure the AMI, the timeout or the number of SSH retries for the proxy appliance?
