Step 1. Locate Backup
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 security reasons, if you work with Veeam Agent connected to a Veeam backup server as a member of a protection group for pre-installed Veeam Agents, the veeamconfig backup list --all command will display backups created only by the current Veeam Agent computer with the current connection settings. To learn more about protection groups for pre-installed Veeam Agents, see the Protection Group Types section in the Veeam Agent Management Guide.
For each backup, Veeam Agent displays the following information:
Host name of the computer on which the backup job was configured and name of the job by which the backup was created.
ID of the backup.
Name of the backup repository in which the backup was created.
Date and time of the backup creation.
user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig backup list --all
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.
