Creating Active Full Backup
When you run an active full backup process, Veeam Backup for RHV creates a new full backup file and adds it to the backup chain. The active full backup resets the backup chain. All subsequent incremental backups use the active full backup as a starting point. The previously used full backup will remains in the backup repository until it is removed from the backup chain according to the retention policy.
To perform an active full backup, do the following:
- At the main panel of the Veeam Backup for RHV web console, click the Jobs tab.
- Select the required backup job and click Active Full on the toolbar.
- Click Yes to confirm the action and run the active full backup process for the selected job.
