Step 10. Specify Secondary Target

The Secondary Target step of the wizard is available if you have enabled the Configure secondary destinations for this job option at the Storage step of the wizard.

At the Secondary Target step of the wizard, you can link the Veeam Agent backup policy to a backup to tape or backup copy job. As a result, the backup policy will be added as a source to the backup to tape or backup copy job. Backup files created with the backup policy will be archived to tape or copied to the secondary backup repository according to the secondary jobs schedule. For more information, see the Linking Backup Jobs to Backup Copy Jobs and Linking Backup Jobs to Backup to Tape Jobs sections in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

The backup to tape job or backup copy job must be configured beforehand. You can create these jobs with an empty source. When you link the Veeam Agent backup policy to these jobs, Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically update the linked jobs to define the Veeam Agent backup policy as a source for these jobs.

To link jobs:

  1. Click Add.
  2. From the jobs list, select a backup to tape or backup copy job that must be linked to the Veeam Agent backup policy. You can link several jobs to the backup policy — for example, one backup to tape job and one backup copy job. To quickly find the job, use the search field at the bottom of the wizard.
