Step 1. Locate Backup

In this article

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

    veeamconfig backup list --all

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

    The --all parameter is optional. If you do not use this option, Veeam Agent displays information about backups created by the current Veeam Agent computer only.

    For each backup, Veeam Agent displays the following information:



    Job name

    Host name of the computer on which the backup job was configured and name of the job by which the backup was created.

    Backup ID

    ID of the backup.


    Name of the backup repository in which the backup was created.
    Imported backups are marked as Imported in the Repository column. For information about the import procedure, see Importing Backups.

    Created at

    Date and time of the backup creation.

    For example:

    user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig backup list --all
    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
    wrk01 SystemBackup         {951ac571-dd29-45ac-8624-79b8ccb45863}  Repository_2  2016-11-13 15:26
    wrk02 SystemBackup         {8d6d4d39-51b2-48b1-ac7a-84f2d6dbc167}  Repository_3  2016-11-13 15:59


    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, you can import such backup into the Veeam Agent database on your computer. To learn more, see Importing Backups.
