Enabling Health Check Schedule

After you set health check schedule for a backup job, Veeam Agent automatically enables this backup health check schedule for the job. You can also enable health check schedule manually — for example, if you previously disabled it. To enable health check schedule, use the following command:

veeamconfig healthcheck enable --light --jobid <job_id>


veeamconfig healthcheck enable --light --jobname <job_name>


  • <job_id> — ID of the backup job for which you want to configure health check schedule. You should look up the backup job ID before you run the command to enable the schedule — for example, with the veeamconfig job list command. To learn more, see Viewing List of Backup Jobs.
  • <job_name> — name of the backup job for which you want to configure the health check schedule.

Enabling Health Check Schedule TIP

If the name of the job consists of several words and contains spaces, use quote marks around the name — for example, --jobName "Files Backup".

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig healthcheck enable --light --jobname SystemBackup

You can disable health check schedule for a job at any time. To learn more, see Disabling Health Check Schedule.
