VeeamZIP backup

Veeam Logoby Ultra_Cool » Thu Jun 20, 2013 8:48 am

Hello,

I created VeeamZIP backup on target host. Than I copied that file to my Veeam server and imported it to console. Question is how can I point to that backup and create a new backup job so that I get only changes insted of a new backup. If I look at my repository i am not able to find that backup when I choose map backup.

Does it works with VeeamZIP to do that or I have to create backup with backup job on target host and then map it?

Mapping to an existing backup is not possible without VBM file and VeeamZIP does not produce the VBM file. You should use an ordinary backup job to create a seed.

So that means that first i create ordinary backup and place it on target host. That I can point to it when I create new backup job and use seed?

Potentially, this obsolete PS script might do the trick and create a required .vbm file from existing .vbk file for you.

Thanks.

I created first backup job and saved it on target repository. Than I created new job and when I click on map backup i pointed to target backup. HMM where it will save backup? If a map backup which is on target is that backup still gonna reside on target or? I cant change repository there?

The backup of the mapped job will be created in the same repository where the seed is stored. Btw, here is the step-by-step procedure for seeding a backup.
