Assigning Backup Policies

To configure Veeam backup agent job settings on one or more managed computers, you can assign a saved backup policy to these computers. You can assign any backup policy, including predefined policies, policies created by your company users, and policies created by the Portal Administrator.

Assigning Backup Policies Note:

Backup policies created by Company Owner and Location Administrators in the Client Portal can be assigned only to this particular Company. If you want to assign such policies to other companies, you can copy them as described in section Copying Backup Policies.
