Quick Backup for Veeam Agent Linux

Post by Yukinobu » Mar 29, 2019 1:53 am

Hi,

We are managing Veeam agent from Veeam Backup server.
The agent job is set 2 restore point and forever incremental.
When we perform quick backup for Linux machine of the agent job, the newly created restore point is used as a normal restore point.
Result oldest restore point is merged and removed.

Doesn't it incorecct that Quick backup will affect existing restore points?
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... l?ver=95u4

Or does veeam have a special specification in case of agent backup?

Kind Regards,
Yukinobu Asami

Hello,
thanks for bringing it up. I could reproduce it with U4a - I check with QA.

Best regards,
Hannes

Hello Yukinobu,

It works as described in Agent Management guide (retention is triggered). That said, I do understand that it should work the same way as in vm backup, so consider the improvement request being noted based on your post. Cheers and thank you for bringing this up!

Hi,

We requested that Quick Backup's restore point for Agent backup behave like a VM backup(Case: #03486859 ).

Is it included in 9.5u4b?

If No, do you know the plan or ETA?

Kind Regards,
Yukinobu

Hello Yukinobu,

Unfortunately the fix was to complex to include in the Update 4b. It's going to be included in the next major release, thanks!
