Configure Veeam Backup Repository

The Veeam backup repository is a folder on a storage device that acts as a backup target. The Veeam backup repository is managed by the Veeam backup server.

You have two options:

  • Use default backup repository

If you leave the default settings, your backups will be stored in the Veeam backup server. During the installation process, Veeam Backup & Replication sets up the default backup repository on the backup server, on the volume with the most amount of free disk space.

  • Configure a dedicated backup repository

If you do not want to store you backups in the Veeam backup sever, add a new repository. A physical or virtual machine that you want to use as a repository must meet system requirements.

To learn how to add a backup repository, see Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Adding Backup Repositories.

Configure Veeam Backup Repository Important!

Mind the following limitations:

  • To store backups of Nutanix AHV VMs you can use simple backup repositories, scale-out backup repositories and ExaGrid appliances.
  • HPE StoreOnce and Dell EMC Data Domain deduplicating storage appliances are not supported as backup targets.
