Creating Backup Repository
A backup job configured in Veeam Agent for IBM AIX creates backup files in a backup repository. If you want to back up your data to a directory in the machine's local file system or a network shared folder (NFS or CIFS share), you must create a backup repository in advance, before you create a backup job.
Consider the following:
To create a backup repository, use the following command:
veeamconfig repository create --name <repository_name> --location <path>
- <repository_name> — desired name for the backup repository.
- <path> — path to the directory in the local file system of your machine in which backup files should be stored.
$ veeamconfig repository create --name BackupVol01 --location /home/backups
To create a backup repository in a network shared folder, you must mount the network shared folder to a directory in your machine's file system in advance. After you mount the network shared folder, you can create the backup repository in the same way as in a local directory.
