(Note - US-East-2 buckets will show up but the backup fails. We are working with CloudBerry to resolve this issue. The workaround is to use 'S3 Compatible' option instead of 'Wasabi' above and set the 'service point' to 's3.us-east-2.wasabisys.com'.

2.5 Cloudberry will confirm the account is registered successfully by showing the below screen. At this point, click on Close and let's configure a backup plan that points to Wasabi.
