Users with the Portal Administrator role can modify settings of VMware and Hyper-V backup and replication jobs that have been previously configured on backup servers connected to Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager. In Enterprise Manager, you can change only a subset of the job settings. To edit other job settings, use the Veeam Backup & Replication console.
In Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, you can change the following job settings:
- Change a job name, description and retention settings for the restore points.
- Manage a list of machines that the job should process (add and remove machines or containers, exclude individual machines from containers, change the order in which the job will process machines).
- Configure guest processing settings.
- Change a job schedule.
The changes take effect with the next job run.
If the Location properties of the source object and target object do not match, you will receive a warning message after you finish editing. For example, you may have a backup job targeted at repository located in Sydney, and source machines located in London.
To edit a job, use the Edit Backup Job (or Edit Replication Job) wizard.
