Step 5. Link Backup or Replication Job

In this article

    At the Linked Jobs step of the wizard, select backup or replication jobs with VMs that you want to verify with the SureBackup job.

    You can link a backup or replication job to the SureBackup job or skip this step. If you do not link a backup or replication job, Veeam Backup & Replication will only start VMs from the application group in the virtual lab and verify them. You have an option not to link a backup or replication job to the SureBackup job only if you have selected an application group at the Application Group step of the wizard.

    To link a backup or replication job to the SureBackup job:

    1. Select the Link jobs check box.
    2. Click Add.
    3. In the Select Jobs window, select backup and/or replication jobs.
    4. In the Process simultaneously up to … VMs field, specify the maximum number of VMs (from a linked job) that can be started at the same time. For example, if you select to start three VMs at the same time, Veeam Backup & Replication will create three streams — one stream per every verified VM. All three VMs will be tested together. But if you select to start one VM, then only one  VM will been tested and powered off, and the next VM will be started in the available stream. After all VMs are verified, VMs from the application group will be powered off or will be left running (if the Keep the application group running after the job completes option has been enabled at the Application Group step of the wizard).

    To remove a backup or replication job from the list, select it and click Remove.
