Specifying Monthly Schedule

To create a monthly schedule for the backup policy, at the Schedule step of the wizard, do the following:

  1. Set the Monthly retention toggle to On and click Edit Monthly Settings.
  2. In the Monthly schedule window, select months when the backup policy will create backups.
  3. Use the Create restore points at and Run on drop-down lists to schedule a specific time and day for the backup policy to run.
  4. In the Monthly retention section, specify the number of days (or months) for which you want to keep restore points in a backup chain.

If a restore point is older than the specified time limit, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure removes the restore point from the chain. For more information, see Cosmos DB Backup Retention.

  1. In the Repository section, select a backup repository where the created backups will be stored.

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.

  1. To save changes made to the backup policy settings, click Apply.
