Windows Agent Backup to repository - how to choose a different folder

Post by mashme » Nov 02, 2019 6:04 pm

My Windows Agents (Vs. 3.0.2.1170) backups to a repository. The backups are stored to a specific folder generated by the credentials given in the backup job definitions.
In my case this is \LAN_Administrator\BackupJobName\
I would like to store them elsewhere, for example \Workstations\BackupJobName, but do not find a way to map them to a folder name of my choice.

Is this possible?
If not, this is a feature request.

Hello,
can you please clarify your setup? I just looked into my installation and I see this

JOBNAME - HOSTNAME\ for a managed agent to a VBR repository
DOMAINNAME_HOSTNAME\JOBNAME for an unmanged agent to a VBR repository
JOBNAME for unmanaged to an SMB share

So I don't see your combination by with credentials. Well, I see it for Nutanix AHV backups, but that's a different story.

I'm using 9.5U4b

Best regards,
Hannes

Dear Hannes,

my setup is:

a VBR 9.5U4b Backup Server (Community Edition) installed on a HOST A
a VBR repository installed on a HOST B
a workstation with a managed Windows Agent Vs. Vs. 3.0.2.1170

The personal credentials defined in the backup job of the workstation are "LAN\Administrator"
The backups are stored in the repository to a folder named \LAN_Administrator\NameOfBackupJob

I would like to store the backups to a folder of my choice.

Best regards
Martin
