Shared Folder Settings

The Shared Folder step of the wizard is available if you have selected the Managed by agent mode at the Job Mode step of the wizard and chosen to save the backup in a network shared folder.

Specify shared folder settings:

  1. In the Shared folder field, type a UNC name of the network shared folder in which you want to store backup files. Keep in mind that the UNC name always starts with two back slashes (\\).
  2. In the Share type section, select the type of a network shared folder:
  • NFS — to connect to a network shared folder using the NFS protocol.
  • SMB — to connect to a network shared folder using the SMB (CIFS) protocol.
  1. If the network shared folder requires authentication, select the This share requires access credentials check box and select from the list a user account that has access permissions on this shared folder. If you have not set up credentials beforehand, click the Manage accounts link or click Add on the right to add credentials. The user name must be specified in the DOMAIN\USERNAME format.
  2. In the Restore points to keep on disk field, specify the number of restore points for which you want to store backup files in the target location. By default, Veeam Agent for Linux keeps backup files created for 14 latest restore points. After this number is exceeded, Veeam Agent for Linux will remove the earliest restore points from the backup chain.
  3. Click Advanced to specify advanced settings for the backup job. To learn more, see Specify Advanced Backup Settings.
