Copying Backup Policies

Instead of creating a new backup policy from scratch, you can create a copy of an existing backup policy and modify its settings. This can be useful if you need to create a set of similar backup policies with only a few settings that differ.

To create a copy of a backup policy:

  1. Log in to Veeam Availability Console as a Portal Administrator.

For details, see Accessing Veeam Availability Console.

  1. At the top right corner of the Veeam Availability Console window, click Configuration.
  2. In the configuration menu on the left, click Backup Policies.
  3. Select the necessary policy in the list.

To find a backup policy, you can use the following controls:

  • Use the search field to find a backup policy by name.
  • Use the Type filter to show backup policies for workstations or servers only.
  • Use the Policy Type filter to show only predefined backup policies, policies created by the provider or policies created in the Client Portal.
  1. At the top of the list, click Copy.
  2. At the Backup Policy Name step of the wizard, change the name and description of a policy copy.
  3. Modify the necessary policy settings as described in Creating Backup Policies.
  4. Save changes.
