Step 3. Uploading Custom Script

To upload a custom script and set required permissions, do the following.

  1. Upload your scripts to the AHV Backup Proxy VM. To upload scripts, you can use WinSCP or any other tool. The default directory for scripts is: /opt/VeeamBackupAgent/CustomScripts/BackupJobs/.

Note that SSH is disabled by default in the AHV Backup Proxy. To enable SSH, run the following command in the VM console.

sudo service ssh start

  1. Set the file execution permissions.

sudo chmod +x /opt/VeeamBackupAgent/CustomScripts/BackupJobs/
