Configure Backup Repository

In this article

    Backup repository is a storage location where AHV Backup Proxy keeps backup files. Backup repository is managed in the Veeam Backup & Replication console.

    If you leave the default settings, your backups will be stored on the Veeam Backup & Replication server, on the volume with the largest amount of free disk space. If you do not want to store your backups on the Veeam Backup & Replication server, add a new repository.

    You can use the following storage types as a repository:

    • Object storage. You can use cloud storage services as backup repositories. For more information, see Object Storage.

    You can also use scale-out backup repositories that contain supported repository types.

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


    Mind the following limitations:

    • Veeam Cloud Connect repositories are not supported for backups created by AHV Backup Proxy.
    • [For scale-out backup repositories] Due to specifics of backup jobs for AHV VMs, Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV always creates a separate backup chain for each VM added to a backup job. Thus, even if you unselect the Use per-VM backup files check box in the advanced settings of a scale-out backup repository, backups of multiple AHV VMs are not stored in a single backup file.
