Backup of Unix Computers

In this article

    Starting from build 11.0.1.1261, you can use Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris or Veeam Agent for IBM AIX managed by Veeam Backup & Replication to back up data of Unix computers. 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 Unix computers protection:

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

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