Performing Manual Configuration Backup

While performing configuration backup, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure exports data from the configuration database and saves it to a backup file in a backup repository. To back up the configuration database of the backup appliance manually, do the following:

  1. Switch to the Configuration page.
  2. Navigate to Configuration Backup.
  3. In the Overview section, click Take Backup Now.
  4. In the Create Manual Backup window, select a repository where the configuration backup will be stored, and click Create.

For a backup repository to be displayed in the Repository list, it must be added to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure as described in section Adding Backup Repositories. The Repository list shows only backup repositories that have encryption enabled and immutability disabled.

As soon as you click Create, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will start creating a new backup in the selected repository. To track the progress, click Go to Sessions in the Session Info window to proceed to the Session Log tab.
