Detailed Description

This cmdlet sets the trust policy for Linux hosts. The policy determines which protected computers running Linux OS are allowed to connect to the backup server. Veeam Backup & Replication recognizes a host as trusted if this host has connected to the Veeam backup server before. Veeam Backup & Replication remembers trusted hosts and keeps them in a database. You can add trusted hosts to the database manually by importing hosts SSH fingerprints from a file.

Note

To modify settings, specify new values for the necessary parameters. The cmdlet will overwrite the previous parameters values with new values. The parameters that you omit will remain unchanged.
