Step 1. Locate Backup

To view a list of backups created by Veeam Agent for IBM AIX, use the following command:

veeamconfig backup list [--all]

Where --all is an option that instructs Veeam Agent to display information about all Veeam Agent for IBM AIX backups in backup repositories configured in the product. If you do not use this option, Veeam Agent will display information about backups of the current Veeam Agent machine only.

If you work with Veeam Agent connected to a Veeam backup server as a member of a protection group for pre-installed Veeam Agents, for security reasons, the veeamconfig backup list --all command will display backups created only by the current Veeam Agent computer with the current connection settings. To learn more about protection groups for pre-installed Veeam Agents, see the Protection Group Types section in the Veeam Agent Management Guide.


If you cannot locate the backup from which you want to restore data, make sure Veeam Agent has access to the backup repository that contains this backup. To learn more about configuring backup repositories, see Managing Backup Repositories and Managing Veeam Backup & Replication Servers.

You can also import a backup if it is stored on the Veeam Agent computer or in a network shared folder. For example, this can be a backup created with another instance of Veeam Agent. To learn more about backup import, see Importing Backups.

For each backup, Veeam Agent displays the following information:



Job name

Name of the backup job by which the backup was created.

Backup ID

ID of the backup.


Name of the backup repository in which the backup was created.

Created at

Date and time of the backup creation.

For example:

user@unixsrv:~$ veeamconfig backup list --all
Job name               Backup ID                               Repository                         Created at

unixsrv system backup  {bd99e384-b62f-47dc-ad38-f0b3dc5d3c40}  [srv14] Default Backup Repository  2020-03-16 11:49

unixsrv file backup    {d2bc5ec7-9545-4740-b452-7a91db7a90c8}  backup01                           2020-03-16 13:30


Step 1. Locate Backup Tip

If you want to recover data from a backup that is stored in another location, for example, a backup created with another instance of Veeam Agent for IBM AIX, you can import such backup into the Veeam Agent for IBM AIX database on your machine. To learn more, see Importing Backups.
