Importing Configuration Database
This functionality is not fully available in Veeam Agent version 2.1. You can import only configuration files generated by Veeam Backup & Replication. You must import the configuration file generated by Veeam Backup & Replication, if Veeam Agent is managed by Veeam Backup & Replication as a member of a protection group for pre-installed Veeam Agents. For more information on importing configuration using the product UI, see Importing Configuration from Veeam Backup Server.
You import the Veeam Agent configuration from a file in the XML format to the configuration database. This may be useful, for example, if you have changed Veeam Agent for Mac settings by editing a configuration file or want to apply configuration of another instance of Veeam Agent to Veeam Agent installed on your computer.
You can import a Veeam Agent configuration in ether of the following ways:
From the Veeam Agent application menu, select Settings > Import Configuration; in the Finder, select the configuration file to import.
From the Veeam Agent status bar menu, select Import > Configuration; in the Finder, select the configuration file to import.
To import the Veeam Agent configuration database in command line interface, use the following command:
veeamconfig config import --file <path>
<path> — path to a configuration file to which you want to import configuration.
user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig config import --file veeam/config.xml
