Starting Backup Job from Control Panel

You can start a backup job with the Veeam Agent for Linux control panel.

Starting Backup Job from Control Panel Note:

Veeam Agent for Linux can currently perform only one backup job at a time. You cannot start a backup job when another backup job is already running.

To start a backup job:

  2. Press the 's' key to open the Select job to start dialog window.
  3. Select the necessary backup job in the list and press Enter.
  4. Veeam Agent for Linux will immediately start the backup job and display a notification window informing that the job has been started. Press Enter to close the window and proceed to the list of backup job sessions.

You can monitor the backup job performance in the Veeam Agent for Linux control panel. To learn more, see Viewing Real-Time Job Session Statistics.
