Creating Repository in Local Folder

To create a repository in a local folder, you specify a name for the repository and a local directory in which Veeam Agent will create backup files. To do this, use the following command:

veeamconfig repository create --name <repository_name> --location <path_to_repository>


  • <repository_name> — name of the repository.
  • <path_to_repository> — path to the folder in which backup files will be stored.

For example:

$ veeamconfig repository create --name VeeamBackup --location /home/backups
