Veeam Availability Orchestrator 2.0

Editing Template Jobs

When you create an orchestration plan, you have an option to re-protect VMs included in the plan as soon as the recovery process is complete. VAO will automatically create a new backup job to re-protect the replicas and backups as part of the plan execution process.

To accomplish this, configure a template backup job on the Veeam Backup & Replication server that protects the required VMs and is connected to your VAO server. For VAO to discover the backup job as a Template, you must create a standard Veeam backup job and mention the [VAO TEMPLATE] text in the backup job description.

Creating Template Job

After you create a template backup job on the Veeam Backup & Replication server, VAO will collect this data and display it in the VAO UI.

Editing Template Jobs Note:

The VAO template job can be configured per-VM group in a plan. To do that, select the Protect VM Groups option when creating or editing the plan. With this option selected, a new backup job will be created for the VM group. For more information, see Overriding VM Recovery and Protection Settings.
