    Examples

    Set-VBRNASBackupJobExample 1. Modifying Long-Term Repository

    This example shows how to modify a long-term repository for a file backup job. The file backup job will have the following settings:

    • Veeam Backup & Replication will move data from the short-term repository to the Repository 09 backup repository.
    • Veeam Backup & Replication will keep file versions on the long-term repository for 3 years.

     

    $job = Get-VBRNASBackup -Name "NFS Backup"

    $repository = Get-VBRBackupRepository -Name "Repository 09"

    Set-VBRNASBackupJob -Job $job -LongTermBackupRepository -EnableLongTermRetention -LongTermRetentionType Yearly -LongTermRetentionPeriod 3

    Perform the following steps:

    1. Run the Get-VBRNASBackup cmdlet. Specify the Name parameter value. Save the result to the $job variable.
    2. Run the Get-VBRBackupRepository cmdlet. Specify the Name parameter value. Save the result to the $repository variable.
    3. Run the Set-VBRNASBackupJob cmdlet. Specify the following settings:
    • Set the $Job variable as the Job parameter value.
    • Specify the LongTermBackupRepository parameter value.

    • Specify the LongTermRetentionPeriod parameter value.

    Set-VBRNASBackupJobExample 3. Enabling Secondary Target Repository

    This example shows how to enable the secondary repository for the file backup job. The secondary repository will be created with the following settings:

    • Veeam Backup & Replication will apply a retention policy that is set to the file backup job.
    • Veeam Backup & Replication will apply an encryption key that is set to the file backup job.
    • Veeam Backup & Replication will copy data to the repository continuously.

     

    $job = Get-VBRNASBackup -Name "NFS Backup"

    $secondary = Get-VBRBackupRepository -Name "Repository 09"

    Set-VBRNASBackupJob -Job $job -EnableSecondaryTarget -SecondaryTarget $secondary

    Perform the following steps:

    1. Run the Get-VBRNASBackup cmdlet. Specify the Name parameter value. Save the result to the $job variable.
