Testing Workers

Before using a dedicated worker for a backup or restore operation, Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV automatically tests its configuration — verifies that the worker service can start successfully, checks that the worker can connect to the backup server and to the cluster, and installs available updates.

If you want to ensure that the worker configuration is correct before it is used for a backup or restore operation, you can start a worker configuration test manually:

  1. Switch to the Configuration page.
  2. Navigate to Workers.
  3. Select the worker and click Test.

Note that you can select and test multiple workers at once.

As soon as Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV finishes the worker configuration test, the worker will be powered off. To see detailed information on a worker test session, click the worker test status in the Last Test column.
