Backup of macOS Computers

To back up data of macOS computers, you can use Veeam Agent for Mac together with Veeam Backup & Replication. In this scenario, some Veeam Agent features differ from the same features in Veeam Agent operating the standalone mode. This section provides description for such features in the Veeam Agent management scenario.

Veeam Backup & Replication is required for the following tasks that are critical for the macOS computer protection:

  • Configuration of the protection group for pre-installed Veeam Agents that is the only applicable group for macOS computer.
  • Configuration of the backup policy for Veeam Agent for Mac.

Keep in mind that you must deploy Veeam Agent for Mac on the macOS computer using setup files generated by Veeam Backup & Replication. To learn more, see Deploying Veeam Agents Using Generated Setup Files.
