Before You Begin
Before you create a backup copy job, check the prerequisites and limitations:
- Backup infrastructure components that will take part in the backup copy process must be added to the backup infrastructure and properly configured. These include source and target backup repositories between which backups must be copied.
- The target backup repository must have enough free space to store copied backups. To receive alerts about low space on the backup repository, configure global notification settings. For more information, see Specifying Other Notification Settings.
- For Veeam Plug-in backup copy jobs, you cannot select the following repositories as a backup copy target:
- If you have upgraded the backup files, make sure that you have upgraded Veeam Plug-in on the source server. If the plug-in is not upgraded to version 12 and you convert backup copy files to backup files, then the next backup job runs will fail.
