In Veeam Backup & Replication, backup is a job-driven process. To back up VMs, you must configure a backup job. The backup job defines how, where and when to back up VM data. One job can be used to process one or several VMs.

You can configure a job and start it immediately or save the job to start it later. Jobs can be started manually or scheduled to run automatically at specific time.

Before creating a job, check prerequisites. Then use the New Backup Job wizard to configure a backup job.

1.Launch the New Backup Job wizard
2.Specify job name and description
3.Select virtual machines to back up
4.Exclude objects from the backup job
5.Define VM backup order
6.Specify backup storage settings
7.Specify advanced backup settings
8.Specify secondary target
9.Enable application-aware image processing and indexing
10.Define the job schedule
11.Finish working with the wizard
