Cloning Backup Jobs

You can create a new job by cloning an existing one. Job cloning allows you to create an exact copy of any job with the same job settings.

To clone a job, do the following:

  1. In the Veeam Backup & Replication console, open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Jobs.
  3. In the working area, select the job and click Clone on the ribbon, or right-click the job and select Clone.

The name of the cloned job is formed by the following rule: <job_name_clone1>, where job_name is the name of the original job and clone1 is a suffix added to the original job name. If you clone the same job again, the number in the name will be incremented, for example, job_name_clone2, job_name_clone3 and so on. To change the name of a cloned job, edit the job as described in section Editing Job Settings.


If the original job is scheduled to run automatically, Veeam Backup for OLVM and RHV disables the cloned job. To enable the cloned job, select it in the job list and click Enable.
