When a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance is added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, Veeam Backup & Replication manages its configuration backup and restore. When Veeam Backup & Replication performs configuration backup, it backs up the configuration of the backup server and also configurations of all Veeam Backup for AWS appliances added to the infrastructure.
By default, Veeam Backup & Replication performs configuration backup daily at 10.00 AM. However, in the default settings, the appliance configuration backup is disabled. To enable the appliance configuration backup, you must enable encryption as described in Performing Configuration Backup.
Backup File Formats and Locations
Backup files are stored in a folder in the backup repository specified in the configuration backup settings. The files have the following formats and are stored in the following folders:
- BCO format for the Veeam Backup & Replication configuration. Such configuration backups are stored in the \VeeamConfigBackup\<backup server name> folder.
- BCAWS format for the appliance configuration. Such configuration backups are stored in the \VeeamConfigBackup\AWS\<appliance name>_<VB Instance ID> folders.
If the name of an appliance contains unsupported characters, these characters are replaced with the underscore symbol. This replacement is actual for the folder name and backup file names.
