Performing Backup Copy for Veeam Agent Backups

You can configure backup copy jobs that will copy backups created with Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris to a secondary backup repository.

Backup copy jobs process Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris backups in the similar way as VM backups. To learn more about backup copy jobs, see the Backup Copy section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

The setup procedure for a Veeam Agent backup copy job practically does not differ from the same procedure for a VM backup copy job. Consider the following:

  • You can process backups created by Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris only with backup copy jobs for Oracle Solaris machine backups. You cannot add a Veeam Agent backup as an additional source of a backup copy job that processes VM backups or other backups.
  • You cannot process machines based on the Intel x86 architecture and machines based on the Oracle SPARC architecture in the same backup copy job.
  • You can process backups created by Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris only with backup copy jobs operating in the periodic copy mode. Immediate copy mode is not supported.

To create a Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris backup copy job:

  1. In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, in the Home view, right-click the Jobs node in the inventory pane or right-click anywhere in the working area, and select one of the following options:
    • Backup copy > Solaris SPARC backup — if you want to create a copy of a Veeam Agent backup created for machines based on the Oracle SPARC architecture.
    • Backup copy > Solaris x86 backup — if you want to create a copy of a Veeam Agent backup created for machines based on the Intel x86 architecture.
  1. Follow the steps of the New Backup Copy Job wizard. At the Objects step of the wizard, you will be able to add Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris backups to the job.

To learn more about how to configure backup copy jobs, see the Creating Backup Copy Jobs for VMs and Physical Machines section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

Performing Backup Copy for Veeam Agent Backups 

Restoring Data from Copies of Veeam Agent Backups

Backups copied to the secondary backup repository do not preserve user access permissions. At the same time, users who created backups do not have access permissions on these secondary repositories. For this reason, users cannot restore data from their backups residing in the secondary site.

To overcome this limitation, you can delegate the restore task to backup administrators who work with Veeam Backup & Replication. Backup administrators can use Veeam Backup & Replication to export data contained in backup files as virtual disks.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

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