Feature request: Backup copy job of Veeam Agent backup

Post by Yuya » May 24, 2018 8:47 am

Hello,

Veeam Agent's user guide says
"You cannot map a backup copy job to a backup created by a Veeam Agent backup job configured in Veeam Backup & Replication."
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agent ... tml?ver=20
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agent ... tml?ver=21

However, the backup copy job seems to be working in our lab.

When will you support this function?

Regards,
Yuya

You mean you managed to map agent backup copy job to backup created by agent backup job configured in backup server? Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the community!

Yes, you can use an agent backup file as a source for the backup copy job. Thanks!

Hello Dgrinev,

Thanks for the reply.

How come this line is in the notes (links in 1st topic):
You cannot map a backup copy job to a backup created by a Veeam Agent backup job configured in Veeam Backup & Replication.

I can confirm i could make a copy-job from a veeamagent-job configured in VBR.

Or are we talking about different things here ?

Hey,

You can use a backup created by the agent as a source for a copy job, no matter if it was in standalone or managed by VBR mode.
The statement from the user guide describes Backup Copy Jobs Mapping. Thanks!
