Step 5. Link Backup or Replication Job
At the Linked Jobs step of the wizard, select backup or replication jobs with machines 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 machines 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:
- Select the Link jobs check box.
- Click Add.
- In the Select Jobs window, select backup and/or replication jobs.
- In the Process simultaneously up to … machines field, specify the maximum number of machines (from a linked job) that can be started at the same time. For example, if you select to start three machines at the same time, Veeam Backup & Replication will create three streams — one stream per every verified machine. All three machines will be tested together. But if you select to start one machine, then only one machine will been tested and powered off, and the next machine will be started in the available stream. After all machines are verified, machines 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.
