Creating Active Full Backup in CLI
In Veeam Agent command line interface, you can manually start a backup job to create an active full backup. To perform active full backup, you must configure a backup job first.
To start active full backup, use the following command:
veeamconfig job start --name <job_name> --activefull
veeamconfig job start --id <job_id> --activefull
- <job_name> — name of the backup job that you want to start to create an active full backup.
- <job_id> — ID of the backup job that you want to start to create an active full backup.
$ veeamconfig job start --name SystemBackup --activefull
You can view the progress for the active full backup session in the same way as for any other backup job session. In particular, you can check the backup job session status or view the backup job session log using the Veeam Agent command line interface.
If you start an active full backup job while another backup job is running, Veeam Agent will perform the active full backup immediately after the current job is completed. For details, see Job Queue.
