Adding Protection Group to Backup Job

You can quickly add an entire protection group to a Veeam Agent backup job configured in Veeam Backup & Replication.

Adding Protection Group to Backup Job Note:

If you add a protection group that contains both Microsoft Windows computers and Linux computers to a Veeam Agent backup job for Microsoft Windows computers, Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically exclude Linux computers from this backup job. In the same way, if you add such protection group to a Veeam Agent backup job for Linux computers, Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically exclude Microsoft Windows computers from this backup job.

  1. Open the Inventory view.
  2. In the inventory pane, expand the Physical & Cloud Infrastructure node and do one of the following:

For Microsoft Windows computers

  • In the inventory pane, select the protection group that you want to add to the backup job and click Add to Backup > Windows > name of the job on the ribbon.
  • In the inventory pane, right-click the protection group that you want to add to the backup job and select Add to backup job > Windows > name of the job.

For Linux computers

  • In the inventory pane, select the protection group that you want to add to the backup job and click Add to Backup > Linux > name of the job on the ribbon.
