Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Step 6. Add Optional Media Pool Settings

At the Options step of the wizard, you can enable encryption.

Select the Use encryption check box. This option allows you to encrypt the content of files or backups archived to tapes in the media pool.

From the Password field, select a password you want to use to encrypt backups or files archived to tape. You can also click Add or use the Manage passwords link to add a password. For more information, see Tape Jobs Encryption.

If the primary job produces encrypted backups, and you enable encryption in the properties of the media pool, the data on tape will be encrypted twice. To decrypt such tape backups, you will need to specify two passwords:

  • Password for the GFS media pool
  • Password for the primary job
