Step 1. Locate Backup

To view a list of backups created by Veeam Agent for Linux, use the following command:

veeamconfig backup list

In the list of backups, Veeam Agent for Linux displays information about all backups stored in all backup repositories. If Veeam Agent for Linux is connected to a Veeam backup server, backups that are kept on a Veeam backup repository also appear in this list. For each backup, Veeam Agent for Linux displays the following information:



Job name

Name of the backup job by which the backup was created.

Backup UUID

ID of the backup.


Name of the backup repository in which the backup was created.

Created at

Date and time of the backup creation.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig backup list
Job name                   Backup ID                               Repository    Created at
srv01 SystemBackup         {45f074d2-d2d9-423d-84e9-8f1798b08d4c}  Repository_1  2016-11-11 17:37
srv01 DocumentsBackup      {ea64a7e5-038a-4c86-970a-6d59d4cf3968}  Repository_1  2016-11-11 18:30
srv01 HomePartitionBackup  {4f75bb20-a6b6-4323-9287-1c6c8ceccb6b}  Repository_2  2016-11-15 11:28


Step 1. Locate Backup Tip:

If you want to recover data from a backup that is stored in another location, for example, a backup created with another instance of Veeam Agent for Linux, you can import such backup into the Veeam Agent for Linux database on your computer. To learn more, see Importing Backups.
