Before You Begin
Before you create a backup copy job, check the following prerequisites:
- Backup infrastructure components that will take part in the backup copy process must be added to the backup infrastructure. This include target backup repository to which backups must be copied. For more information on adding components, see Backup Infrastructure Components.
- If you plan to use pre-job and post-job scripts, you must create scripts before you configure the backup copy job.
- If you plan to copy backups to an HPE StoreOnce repository, check limitations and requirements for it.
- If you plan to use WAN accelerators, check that you use the Enterprise Plus edition of Veeam Backup & Replication and that target and source WAN accelerators are added to the backup infrastructure. For more information, see Adding WAN Accelerators.
If you plan to migrate VMs between hosts in the cluster or SCVMM, you will not have to reconfigure jobs in Veeam Backup & Replication. Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically locate migrated VMs and continue processing them as usual. If you migrate VMs between standalone hosts that are not a part of one cluster or SCVMM server registered in Veeam Backup & Replication, you will have to reconfigure jobs to include the migrated VMs. After that, Veeam Backup & Replication will create full backups for these VMs. If you do not reconfigure the jobs, they will fail.
