Exclude LUNs from BackupJob

Post by RRStefan »

Hello,
we have a backup job for physical Windows Server. This includes a Veeam Backup Server. In this Server are some LUNs connected as backup target. We want to exclude this LUNs from the Job. How will this be done?

Thanks!

Hi Stefan

You can exclude Volumes from a volume level backup with the Veeam Agent.

The VBR Server with the excluded disks should be in his own job.
Drive Exclusion will be used for all machines in the backup job.

Thanks

thanks, that was one way i thougt of because it doesn't seems to be possible to excludes drives only for a special machine in a job that includes several machines. but i thought maybe there is a more elegant way than splitting the job.

Your welcome.
Yes, unfortunately, you have to use a dedicated job or every machine will use the same exclusion.
