Rescanning Veeam Backup Repository

In this article

    If Veeam Agent for Linux fails to display backups stored in the Veeam Backup & Replication backup repository for some reason, you can rescan the Veeam backup repository. Veeam Agent will try to reconnect to the Veeam backup server and refresh the list of backups in the backup repository.

    To rescan a Veeam backup repository, use the following command:

    veeamconfig repository rescan --id <repository_id>

    or

    veeamconfig repository rescan --name <repository_name>

    where:

    • <repository_id> — ID of the backup repository that you want to rescan.
    • <repository_name> — name of the backup repository that you want to rescan.

    For example:

    user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig repository rescan --name [vbr01]BackupVol01

    You can also rescan all Veeam backup repositories managed by the backup server to which Veeam Agent is connected with the following command:

    veeamconfig repository rescan --all

    Rescanning Veeam Backup Repository TIP

    With commands mentioned above, you can also rescan local backup repositories. This may be useful, for example, after information about a backup stored in the local repository is deleted from the Veeam Agent configuration database, or after you copy a backup to the local repository.
