Synchronizing with Veeam Backup Server

In this article

    After you connected Veeam Agent to the Veeam backup server, you may need to synchronize them. The reason is that the connection between the Veeam backup server and Veeam Agent computer added as a member of the protection group for pre-installed Veeam Agents is not persistent. Veeam Agent synchronizes with Veeam Backup & Replication every 6 hours. During the synchronization, Veeam Agent gets updated backup policies and configuration settings from the Veeam backup server, the Veeam backup server gets certificate details and session logs from Veeam Agent.

    Keep in mind that this command is available only for Veeam Agent connected to the Veeam backup server as a member of the protection group for pre-installed Veeam Agents. To learn more, see the Protection Group Types section in the Veeam Agent Management Guide.

    To synchronize Veeam Agent immediately, run the following command:

    veeamconfig mode syncnow
