Editing Job Settings

Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager allows you to modify settings of VMware and Hyper-V backup and replication jobs that have been previously configured on managed backup servers.

Editing Job Settings Important!

This capability is available if you have Enterprise or Enterprise Plus license installed. Also, consider that using the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager web console, you can change only some settings of the Veeam Backup & Replication jobs, as described below. If you have Veeam backup servers of earlier versions added to Enterprise Manager, note that their jobs cannot be modified using Enterprise Manager.

Working via the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager web UI, you can change a number of job settings:

  • Specify job name, description and retention settings for the restore points
  • Manage the list of VMs that the job should process (add and remove VMs or VM containers to/from the list, exclude individual VMs from VM containers, change the order in which the job will process VMs)
  • Configure guest processing settings
  • Change the job schedule

These settings will take effect starting with the next job run. Other job settings can be configured via the Veeam Backup & Replication console only.  

Editing Job Settings Important!

Backup copy jobs cannot be modified via Enterprise Manager. To edit backup copy job settings, use the Veeam Backup & Replication console.

Job settings are modified by means of a web-based wizard. To run the wizard, do the following:

  1. Open the Jobs tab and select the necessary job in the list.
  2. On the toolbar, click Job and expand the list of available actions.
  3. Select Edit.
