Veeam Agent - Preload backup?

Veeam Logoby janhes » Thu Mar 16, 2017 2:38 pm

Hi,

Is there a way or will it be possible to "preload" a backup into a Veeam Cloud repository ?
Imagine my client has 1To of data with a small internet bandwidth. We would like to preload the folder with all the datas on our Cloud repo and then schedule the next backups..

Thanks for the answer !

Hi Jonathan,

So you would like to create a local full backup, move it to cloud connect repository and continue this full backup with an incremental job run?

Yes right !
But i think i found the solution ! I did almost the same way if there was VM backuped on CC repository and it seems to works. The CC do not create another folder or so, so i guess it's fine.

But if you have another way to this, i'll be glad to read it :)

Just in case you need it - here is a detailed explanation on how to map full backup while using cloud connect repository.

Do not forget to hit rescan on VBR CC side before starting the agent job.
