Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5

Cloning and Editing Jobs

Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager lets you clone jobs configured on Veeam backup servers. When you clone a job, you create an exact copy of any backup or replication job available in the job list. Configuration details of a created job copy are written to the same Microsoft SQL database where details of the original job are stored. You can work with the created job both in Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager and in the Veeam Backup & Replication console on the Veeam backup server.

The recommended practice is to configure a set of job templates in advance, using the Veeam Backup & Replication console on every managed Veeam backup server. Administrators working Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager can then use these templates for cloning and further editing.
