Encryption for AHV Backups?

Post by wa15 »

I don't see a place to encryption in the job settings similar to the Veeam vSphere version. Looking at the user guide (link below), it says encryption can be configured in the repository settings via Veeam B&R replication console. However, I don't see a place to enable encryption on the repository in the console. What am I missing?

Using Windows repository to receive AHV backups.
Veeam virtual appliance version is 1.0, build:632 (4/18/19) if that matters.

Hello wa15,

Right click the repository in Veeam B&R console and select Access permissions. Check the box Encrypt backups stored in this repository and set up the desired password. Cheers!

Thanks!

For vSphere jobs, is there any difference between having encryption enabled and job layer or at the repository layer since both are options?

* Different keys for different jobs
* The fact that repository encryption applies to agent-based backups only

Thanks!

Following up on this....encrypting Nutanix AHV files can't be done if the backups are being written to a SOBR. Is that correct? Running latest version of Veeam for Nutanix and Veeam B&R.

Hello wa15,

Encryption option should be available for any repository when you open Veeam B&R Console, right-click the desired repository and click access permissions in the menu. Cheers!
