Step 11. Specify Backup Repository Settings

The Backup Repository step of the wizard is available if at the Destination step you have chosen to save backup files on a Veeam Backup & Replication repository.

Specify settings for the target backup repository:

  1. In the Specify backup repository name field, type the name of a backup repository where you want to store created backups.

To store backups, you can use a simple backup repository or a scale-out backup repository.

  1. In the Connection account fields, specify a domain, user name and password of the account that has access permissions on the backup repository.

To view the specified password, click and hold the eye icon on the right of the Password field.

Permissions on the backup repository managed by the target Veeam backup server must be granted beforehand. For details, see section Setting Up User Permissions on Backup Repositories of the Veeam Agent for Linux User Guide.

  1. In the Restore points to keep disk field, specify the number of restore points for which you want to store backup files in the target location. By default, Veeam backup agent keeps backup files created for 7 latest restore points. After this number is exceeded, Veeam Agent for Linux will remove the earliest restore points from the backup chain.
  2. Click Advanced Settings to specify advanced settings for the backup job.

For details, see Specify Advanced Job Settings.
