Creating Backup Copy Jobs for VMs and Physical Machines

To copy backups to a secondary location, you must configure a backup copy job. The backup copy job defines how, where and when to copy backups. One backup copy job can be used to process one or multiple machines. Machines included in the job are processed in parallel. If a machine included in the backup copy job has multiple disks, disks are processed sequentially, one after another.

Note

If you want to copy backups between HPE StoreOnce repositories, follow the instructions listed in Creating Backup Copy Jobs for HPE StoreOnce Repositories.

If you want to copy file share backups, follow the instructions listed in Creating File Share Backup Jobs.
