Changing Time Zone

In this article

    Veeam Backup for AWS runs daily reports and performs all data protection and disaster recovery operations according to the time zone set on the backup appliance.

    Since the backup appliance is deployed on an EC2 instance in Amazon EC2, the time zone is set to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) by default. However, you can change the time zone if required. For example, you may want the time on the backup appliance to match the time on the workstation from which you access Veeam Backup for AWS.

    To change the time zone set on the backup appliance:

    1. Switch to the Configuration page.
    1. Navigate to Settings > Time Zone.
    1. Select the necessary time zone from the Time zone drop-down list.
    1. Click Save.


    You cannot change the time zone if any backup policy is currently running. Wait for all the running policies to complete or stop them manually — and then try changing the time zone again. To learn how to stop running backup policies, see sections Starting and Stopping Policies and Starting and Stopping VPC Configuration Backup Policy.
