Starting and Stopping Veeam Agent Backup Job

In this article

    You can start a Veeam Agent backup job manually, for example, if you want to create an additional restore point in the backup chain and do not want to change the job schedule. You can also stop a job, for example, if processing of a Veeam Agent computer is about to take long, and you do not want the job to produce workload on the production environment during business hours.

    1. Open the Home view.

    Stopping Jobs

    You can stop a Veeam Agent backup job in one of the following ways:
