Export Backup jobs (Veeam 3.1.1)

Post by MegaBoot »


Is it possible to export the backup jobs that we made?
we need to reinstall our backup server, so it would be nice if we could export
our backup jobs and import them after a reinstall of our server!

Jens, all Veeam Backup job configurations are stored in the corresponding SQL Server instances selected during product setup.

So, if you are using local SQL, this task comes down to preserving the Veeam Backup database, and the restoring it to the new SQL Express installation using SQL Server Management snap-in... it is common SQL administration task, you can Google for procedure description if you never done this before.

If you are using remote SQL, then it is even easier - just reinstall Veeam Backup and reconnect it to the same instance. You will get a warning saying that this configuration database is used by another Veeam Backup deployment, click Yes to associate it to the new deployment.
