Stopping Backup Job in CLI

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:

$ veeamconfig session stop --id 381532f7-426a-4e89-b9fc-43d98942c71a
Session has stopped.
