Performing Backup Copy for Veeam Agent Backups

In this article

    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 computer 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 computer 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.

    Restoring Data from Copies of Veeam Agent Backups

    The process of data restore from Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris backups created by backup copy jobs does not differ from data restore from Veeam Agent backups created by backup jobs. To learn more, see Performing Restore Tasks.
