How to import Veeam backup jobs to another server

Post by icebun »

We have a single Veeam backup server which is hitting 100% CPU (Windows Server 2008 R2 with 4 CPUs as a VM) when running multiple jobs.

I am now considering introducing a second Veeam server as an offload.

To save me redoing my jobs on the new server, is there any easy way I can export out some of my exising jobs to the new server?

Hello, unfortunately, right now it is all or nothing (by moving the configuration database from one server to another).

Thanks Gostev,

Forgot to mention that the DB is the SQL express one.

Can I ask I would move all the configuration over so I could just simply delete the ones I don't need?

This is probably not so good idea...
1. Deleting jobs will delete backups.
2. Database move is for complete migration. But if you have 2 copies of databases, Enterprise Manager may fail (we have not tested it, but there could be some unique install ID you will copy along with the database).
