Configuring Auto-Backup Settings

In this article

    You can instruct Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to automatically create snapshots of the backup appliance. You can then use these snapshots to recover or migrate Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure data to another Azure VM, as described in this Veeam KB article.

    To configure the auto-backup settings, do the following:

    1. Switch to the Configuration page.
    2. Navigate to Settings > System.
    3. Set the Enable Auto-Backup toggle to On.
    4. Click Customize settings.
    5. In the Self-Backup Settings window, do the following:
    1. In the Number of restore points field, specify the number of snapshots that Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure must keep.
    2. In the Schedule section, choose whether you want to create snapshots daily, monthly or periodically:
    • Select the Daily at this time option if you want Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to create snapshots once a day on defined days. You can choose whether snapshots must be created every day, on weekdays (Monday through Friday) or on specific days.
    • Select the Monthly at this time option if you want Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to create snapshots once a month on a defined day.
    • Select the Periodically every option if you want Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to create snapshots repeatedly throughout a day with a specific time interval. You can choose whether snapshots must be created every several hours or minutes. You can also instruct Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure to create snapshots continuously, one after another.

     

    Tip

    If you choose to create snapshots once every several hours, you can also specify a time shift to postpone the snapshot creation by a defined amount of time (in minutes) in the specified interval. To do that, use the Start time within an hour field.

    1. Click Save.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
