    Editing Backup Repository Note

    Consider the following:

    • If you change location for the backup repository that is already used by a backup job and contains backup files, during the next backup job run, Veeam Agent for IBM AIX will create a new backup chain in the new repository location.
    • You can temporarily change backup repository location if you want to create an ad hoc full backup in addition to the backup chain created by the backup job in the original repository location.

     

     

    Changing Backup Repository Name

    To change a name for the backup repository, use the following command:

    veeamconfig repository edit --name <new_name> for --name <old_name>

    or

    veeamconfig repository edit --name <new_name> for --id <id>

    where:

    For example:

    user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig repository edit --name LocalRepository for --name Repository_1

     

    Changing Backup Repository Location

    To change location for the backup repository, use the following command:

    veeamconfig repository edit --location <path> for --name <name>

    or

    veeamconfig repository edit --location <path> for --id <id>

    where:

    For example:

    user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig repository edit --location /home/veeam for --id 3458797-3ffe-45bc-870e-c5628643bbb3

     

    Changing Backup Repository Name and Location

    You can change a name and location for the backup repository at the same time, for example:

    user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig repository edit --name LocalRepository --location /home/veeam for --name Repository_1
