Stopping Backup Job

In this article

    To stop a backup job, use the following command:

    veeamconfig session stop --id <session_id>


    veeamconfig session stop --force --id <session_id>


    • <session_id> — ID of the currently running backup job session that you want to stop.
    • --force — with this option enabled, Veeam Agent will immediately stop the backup session even if it is unable to stop the veeamjobman process for some reason.

    For example:

    user@wrk01:~$ veeamconfig session stop --id 381532f7-426a-4e89-b9fc-43d98942c71a
    Session has stopped.
