Importing Backups

You can import a backup created by Veeam Agent for Linux into the Veeam Agent for Linux database. For example, you may want to import a previously deleted backup or backup that was created in a network shared folder by Veeam Agent for Linux installed on another computer.

To import a backup:

  1. Start the import process with the following command:

veeamconfig backup import --path <path>

where:

<path> — path to the VBM or VBK file of the backup that you want to import.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig backup import --path /home/share/BackupJob/BackupJob.vbm
Backup has been imported successfully.
Session ID: [{4031f058-766c-4f2c-a7ae-7257adb2929f}].
Logs stored in: [/var/log/veeam/Import/Session_{4031f058-766c-4f2c-a7ae-7257adb2929f}].

  1. You can monitor the import process and result by viewing the import session log with the following command:

veeamconfig session log --id <session_id>

where:

<session_id>ID of the import session.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig session log --id 4031f058-766c-4f2c-a7ae-7257adb2929f
