Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
Enterprise Manager User Guide

Performing Catalog Replication and Indexing

Once you have run backup jobs with guest OS file system indexing enabled, you need to perform catalog replication to consolidate index files from multiple backup servers. During this operation, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager aggregates index data from multiple backup servers and stores them on the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager server to enable file browsing and search.

Performing Catalog Replication and Indexing Note:

Catalog replication is performed for the machines with indexed guest OS file systems on all managed backup servers.

Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager provides two options to perform catalog replication:

  • To perform manual catalog replication, select Search Servers on the left of the Configuration view and click Sync Catalog Now on the toolbar.
  • To automatically run catalog replication after every backup job, select Search Servers on the left of the Configuration view and click Schedule on the toolbar. In the displayed window, select Automatically after every backup job and specify other options as necessary.

Performing Catalog Replication and Indexing 

Every run of a catalog replication job initiates a new job session which can be tracked under Sessions in the Configuration view. To view detailed information for a specific session, find it in the Sessions view and click the corresponding click here link in the Log column.
