Adding Organization Configuration

In this article

    Users with the Portal Administrator role can add a new configuration for a vCD organization. Before you add a new configuration, check prerequisites.

    To add a new organization configuration:

    1. Log in to Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager using an administrative account.
    2. Click Configuration in the top right corner.
    3. In the Configuration view, select the Self-service section.
    4. In the Self-service section, select the vCloud tab.

    Adding Organization Configuration 

    1. To add a new configuration, click Add.
    2. From the vCloud Director server drop-down list, select a vCD server you need.

    The field is available if no vCD server is set as working. For more information, see Before You Begin.

    1. From the Organization drop-down list, select an organization you need. The list contains organizations from the vCD server processed by the backup server that is added to Enterprise Manager.
    2. From the Repository drop-down list, select a repository that will be used for backups. The list includes repositories configured on the backup server that has the vCD server added to its infrastructure.

    To assign multiple repositories to an organization, add new organization configurations, one for each repository.

    Important

    You cannot assign cloud-based repositories, as well as NetApp or Nimble storage systems storing snapshots created by snapshot-only jobs.

    1. In the Friendly name field, specify a repository name that will be displayed to the tenant.
    2. In the Quota section, specify a repository storage quota. You can choose GB or TB from the drop-down list and enter the required quantity.
    3. From the Job scheduling drop-down list, select on of the following options:
    1. Allow: Tenant has full access to all job scheduling options
    2. Allow: Tenant can create daily and monthly jobs only
    3. Deny: Creates daily jobs with randomized start time within the backup window

    For backup jobs of vCD organizations, the backup window settings are specified in Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager. Backup window settings specified for the job template that you will select at the step 9 do not affect organization jobs. For information on how to specify the backup window in Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, see Customizing Chart Appearance.

    1. Deny: Creates job with no schedule assigned

    For more information on job scheduling, see Edit Job Schedule.

    Adding Organization Configuration 

    1. To specify what backup job will be used as a job template for the vCD organization, click the Show Advanced Job Settings link. Then, from the Copy from drop-down list, select backup job settings:
    • Default job settings — default vCD backup job settings as they are shown in the Veeam backup console
    • <Job Name> — specific vCD backup job configured in Veeam backup console

    When finished, click Apply.

    Adding Organization Configuration 

    Important

    The backup repository that is selected from the Repository drop-down list for the organization takes priority over the repository used by the selected job template.

    1. If you do not use the Show Advanced Job Settings link, the default job settings will be applied to the template.

    Note

    To populate the list of job templates, you need at least one vCD backup job to be configured on the backup server.

    1. To save the configuration, click Save.

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
