Agent Policies

In this article

    Veeam ONE Client allows you to track Veeam Agent for Windows, Veeam Agent for Linux, Veeam Agent for Mac and Veeam Agent for Unix backup policies that configure Veeam Agent for Windows, Veeam Agent for Linux, Veeam Agent for Mac and Veeam Agent for Unix job settings on remote computers, and that are managed by Veeam Backup & Replication servers connected to Veeam ONE.

    You can view backup policy statistics at different levels of your backup infrastructure:

    • Backup policies managed by a specific backup server
    • Backup policies managed by all backup servers controlled by Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager
    • All backup policies across the entire backup infrastructure
