Performing Backup Copy for Veeam Agent Backups

You can configure backup copy jobs that will copy backups created with Veeam Agent for Linux to a secondary backup repository.

Backup copy jobs treat Veeam Agent for Linux backups as usual backup files. The backup copy job setup and processing procedures practically do not differ from the regular ones. To learn more about backup copy jobs, see Veeam Backup & Replication Documentation.

Backup copy jobs processing Veeam Agent for Linux backups have one limitation: you cannot use backup mapping for Veeam Agent for Linux backups. As a result, if you have a full Veeam Agent for Linux backup on the target repository, you will not be able to use this backup as a "seed" for the backup copy job. The backup copy job will always copy the whole Veeam Agent for Linux backup chain to the target repository.

Restoring Data from Copies of Veeam Agent Backups

Backups copied to the secondary backup repository do not preserve user access permissions. At the same time, users who created backups do not have access permissions on these secondary repositories. For this reason, users cannot restore data from their backups residing in the secondary site.

To overcome this limitation, you can delegate the restore task to backup administrators who work with Veeam Backup & Replication. Backup administrators can use Veeam Backup & Replication to export data contained in backup files as virtual disks.
