Input and Output XML Files

To export and import data from/to Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, Veeam Agent Configurator uses XML files. Veeam Agent Configurator operates with two types of files:

  • Output XML files contain the current application settings backup job configuration and statistics information exported from Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows.
  • Input XML files contain application settings and backup job configuration that must be set up in Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows.

Application settings, backup job configuration and statistics information data is always saved to a single XML file. By default, the file is located in the C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Endpoint\!Configuration\ folder on the machine where Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows is installed. However, you can use a file stored in a custom location.

Special Characters in XML

Some characters have a special meaning in the XML syntax and are reserved for internal purposes. You cannot use these characters to describe property values in the input XML file. If you use these characters in property values, Veeam Agent Configurator will not be able to parse the input XML file and will report an error in the results of command execution.

If you need to specify one of these characters in property values, you must replace it with the appropriate string.


Character Replacement












I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:


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