Editing Backup Repository Note:

Mind the following:

  • If you change location for the backup repository that is already used by a backup job and contains backup files, during the next backup job run, Veeam Agent for Linux will create a new backup chain in the new repository location.
  • You can temporarily change backup repository location if you want to create an ad hoc full backup in addition to the backup chain created by the backup job in the original repository location.
