Enabling and Disabling Backup Policies

By default, Veeam Backup for AWS runs all created backup policies according to the specified schedules. However, you can temporarily disable a backup policy so that Veeam Backup for AWS does not run the backup policy automatically. You will still be able to manually start or enable the disabled backup policy at any time you need.

To disable an enabled backup policy or to enable a disabled backup policy, do the following:

  1. In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, open the Home view.
  2. Navigate to Jobs.
  3. Select the necessary backup policy and click Disable on the ribbon.

Alternatively, you can right-click the necessary backup policy and select Disable.
