Rescanning Veeam Backup Repository

In this article

    If Veeam Agent for Mac fails to display backups stored in the Veeam Backup & Replication backup repository for some reason, you can rescan the Veeam backup repository. Veeam Agent will try to reconnect to the Veeam backup server and refresh the list of backups in the backup repository.

    To rescan a Veeam backup repository, use the following command:

    veeamconfig repository rescan --id <repository_id>

    or

    veeamconfig repository rescan --name <repository_name>

    where:

    • <repository_id> — ID of the backup repository that you want to rescan.
    • <repository_name> — name of the backup repository that you want to rescan.

    For example:

    user@wrk01:~$ veeamconfig repository rescan --name [vbr01]BackupVol01

    You can also rescan all Veeam backup repositories managed by the backup server to which Veeam Agent is connected with the following command:

    veeamconfig repository rescan --all

     

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
