To protect your machine from a disaster of any kind, you must perform the following operations in Veeam Agent for IBM AIX:
- Define what data you want to back up and configure the backup job.
Before you configure the backup job, you should decide on the following backup details:
- Backup destination: where you want to store your backed-up data.
- Backup scope: what directories and files you want to back up.
- Backup schedule: how often you want to back up your data.
After that, you can configure one or several backup jobs. The backup job captures the data that you have added to the backup scope and creates a chain of restore points in the target location. If your data gets lost or corrupted, you can restore it from the necessary restore point.
