Linking Backup Jobs to Backup Copy Jobs
You can link backup jobs to backup copy jobs. This option lets you create a secondary target for the backup job and store backups created by the backup job in the secondary backup repository.
When you link a backup job to the backup copy job, Veeam Backup & Replication automatically updates properties of the backup copy job and adds to it the backup job as a source of data. During every backup copy session, the backup copy job checks the source backup repository for new restore points. As soon as a backup job session is finished and a new restore point appears in the source backup repository, the backup copy job automatically copies this restore point to the target backup repository.
You can link a backup job to an existing backup copy job using the Backup Job wizard. To link jobs:
- Open the backup job settings for editing. For more information, see Editing Job Settings.
- Navigate to the Storage step.
- Select the Configure secondary destination for this job check box.
- At the Secondary Target step of the wizard, click Add and choose a backup copy job to which the backup job must be linked. The backup copy job must be already configured on the backup server.
