Veeam Backup Repository Settings

If you have selected the Managed by agent mode for the backup job and chosen to store backup files on a Veeam backup repository, specify settings to connect to the backup repository:

  1. At the Backup Server step of the wizard, specify backup server settings.
  2. At the Backup Repository step of the wizard, select the Veeam backup repository.

Specifying Backup Server Settings

The Backup Server 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 store backup files on a Veeam backup repository.

Specify settings for the Veeam backup server that manages the target backup repository:

  1. In the DNS name or external IP address field, specify a DNS name or IP address of the Veeam backup server on which you configure the Veeam Agent backup job. The specified DNS name or IP address must be accessible from the network to which Veeam Agent computers are connected.
  2. In the Port field, specify a port number over which Veeam Agent for Linux must communicate with the backup repository. By default, port 10006 is used.

Selecting Backup Repository

The Backup Repository 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 backup files on a Veeam backup repository.

Specify settings for the target backup repository:

  1. From the Backup repository list, select a backup repository where you want to store created backups. When you select a backup repository, Veeam Backup & Replication automatically checks how much free space is available on the backup repository.
  2. Specify backup retention policy settings:
  • If you have selected the Workstation type at the Job Mode step of the wizard, in the Keep backups for the past <N> days when the computer was running field, specify the number of restore points for which you want to store backup files in the target location.
  • If you have selected the Server type at the Job Mode step of the wizard, 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.

  1. Click Advanced to specify advanced settings for the backup job. To learn more, see Specify Advanced Backup Settings.
