Creating Backup Policies
When you create a backup policy, Veeam Backup & Replication redirects you to the Veeam Backup for AWS Web UI where you can add a backup policy directly to Veeam Backup for AWS. For more information on the backup policies, see the following sections in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide:
VPC backup policy is created automatically on the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance. That is why, you can only manage this policy: edit, enable and disable. For more information on VPC backup policy, see the Performing VPC Configuration Backup section in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide.
To create backup policies:
- Launch and complete the Add Policy wizard using one of the following instructions:
- On the Home tab, navigate to Backup Job > AWS > EC2 or RDS.
- Open the Home view. In the inventory pane, right-click the Jobs node and select Backup > AWS > EC2 or RDS.
If you have several Veeam Backup for AWS appliances added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, select the necessary appliance under the EC2 or RDS node.
- Follow the instructions provided in section Creating EC2 Backup Policies or Creating RDS Backup Policies (steps 2–8) in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide.
