Managing Backup Repositories

A backup repository is a storage location where Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris keeps backup files. You can use the following types of disk-based storage as a target location for a backup job:

  • Local (internal) storage of the protected machine (not recommended)
  • Direct attached storage (DAS), such as USB, eSATA or Firewire external drives
  • Network Attached Storage (NAS) able to represent itself as SMB (CIFS) or NFS share
  • [For Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris version 4.1] Veeam Backup & Replication 12.1 or later backup repository
  • [For Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris version 4.0] Veeam Backup & Replication 11a (build or later backup repository


Consider the following about backup repositories:

  • [For local storage] A backup repository should be created on a separate volume from a volume that contains data you plan to back up.
  • [For Veeam backup repository] Veeam Cloud Connect repositories, repositories with enabled KMS encryption and object storage repositories managed by Veeam Backup & Replication are not supported..
