Create New Backup Job


  • When you create backup job configuration from scratch, some configuration steps may differ from steps available for backup policies. For example, at the Cloud Repository step, you can choose a specific cloud repository as a backup target. In backup policy settings, this possibility is not available.
  • If you chose a cloud repository as a destination, make sure you specify credentials of the Veeam Cloud Connect tenant or Subtenant account. The list of available cloud backup repositories may differ depending on specified credentials.
