Veeam Windows Workstation Path

Post by GregorD » Feb 08, 2019 11:38 am

I have 9.5.u4 and i make a Job for a physical win7 PC with Name PC1.
My repository have a path
\\synology\Veeam\backup\
so before update4 the files have this path.
\\synology01\Veeam\backup\PC1 Job\VeeamAgentUser781d4d7e-e585-11e5-a6e2-41188f068080

But now i have this path:
\\synology01\Veeam\backup\VeeamAgentUser781d4d7e-e585-11e5-a6e2-41188f068080\PC1 Job

I know that this Name should Agent become from Motherboard i think.
Is this really normally and neeeded this extra Folder? Or how can i Change it to before Folder structure?

Hello Gregor,

Any chance you were using standalone agent and then converted your agent to managed by Veeam B&R? Thanks!

Thanks for the heads up! That is correct: Managed by agent job type creates a predefined folder for backup file based on the job name and machine UUID.
