Adding an MSP

To add an MSP to which you would like to link your instance of NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you need the Master Tenant’s hostname or IP address, port number, and the remote tenant credentials they have generated for you. Once you have the above information, follow the steps below:

  1. From the MSP menu, click the Add button in the top right corner.

  2. Fill in the Hostname or IP, Port, Username, and Password fields based on the information provided by your Master Tenant.

  3. Click Apply. The following screen will display the MSP’s certificate details.


    • Your version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication must be the same as the MSP’s version. Otherwise, you will not be able to use the MSP Console feature with the given MSP.

    • The MSP uses a separate listening port for communication with a remote tenant's instance (port 6702 is used by default). If the MSP changes the listening port used, the connection may be interrupted. For more information on required TCP ports, see the MSP Console section in Feature Requirements.

  4. Read through the MSP’s certificate details and click Accept.

  5. The added MSP should now appear in your MSP menu.

Once the MSP is added, you will have successfully established a connection with the Master Tenant as a remote tenant. This allows the Master Tenant to access your instance of NAKIVO Backup & Replication as long as the connection is active.
