How to schedule Day, Week, Month backups?

Post by mdz »

To achieve day, week, month, year backups, I tried to create 4 different backup policies.
However backing up the same resources within different policies seems not possible.
If a VM is included in more than one policy, it is only backed up by the policy that has the highest priority in the list.

I want to have a daily backup that runs on mon-sat wit retention of 30 days + plus a weekly backup that runs on every Sunday with retention of 3 Months + plus a Month backup, with retention of 60 Months + a Year backup with retention of 10 Years.

The above scenario cannot be achieved within one policy. Different policies is not working either.

Does anyone have an idea how this can be achieved with Veeam for Azure?

For now, you will have to integrate with Veeam Backup & Replication and use backup copy jobs from there. This feature is on the roadmap though as it is a common request.
