Importing Backups

In this article

    To import a backup using the command line interface:

    1. Start the import process with the following command:

    veeamconfig backup import --path <path>

    where:

    <path> — path to the VBM file of the backup that you want to import.

    For example:

    user@wrk01:~$ veeamconfig backup import --path /home/share/BackupJob/BackupJob.vbm
    Backup has been imported successfully.
    Session ID: [{4031f058-766c-4f2c-a7ae-7257adb2929f}].
    Logs stored in: [/var/log/veeam/Import/Session_{4031f058-766c-4f2c-a7ae-7257adb2929f}].

    1. You can monitor the import process and result by viewing the import session log with the following command:

    veeamconfig session log --id <session_id>

    where:

    <session_id> — ID of the import session.

    For example:

    user@wrk01:~$ veeamconfig session log --id 4031f058-766c-4f2c-a7ae-7257adb2929f
