Backup Job Scripts
You can specify custom backup job scripts that will be executed within the backup job session on Unix computers. Veeam Agent supports pre-job and post-job scripts that run on the Veeam Agent computer before and after the backup job session. To learn more, see Backup Job Scripts.
To specify custom scripts for the job:
- At the Guest Processing step, select the Enable application-aware processing check box.
- Click Applications.
- In the displayed list, select a protection group or individual computer and click Edit.
To define custom settings for a computer added as a part of a protection group, you must include the computer to the list as a standalone object. To do this, click Add and choose the computer whose settings you want to customize. Then select the computer in the list and define the necessary settings.
- In the Processing Settings window, select the Enable script execution check box.
- In the Pre-job script and Post-job script fields, click Browse to choose executable files from a local folder on the backup server.
Veeam Agent supports scripts in the SH file format. During the backup job session, Veeam Backup & Replication will upload the scripts to the /var/lib/veeam/scripts directory on each Veeam Agent computer added to the job and execute them on these computers.
