Specifying Monthly Schedule

In this article

    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 must 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, configure retention policy settings for the monthly schedule:

    For backups, 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 Retention Policy for Backups.

    1. In the Repository section, select a backup repository where the created backups must be stored. For a backup repository to be displayed, it must be created as described in Adding Backup Repositories section.

    Consider that to restore data from a repository with archive tier, you first need to retrieve data from it as described in Performing Azure SQL Restore (step 6).

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