Migration a VM between backup jobs

Post by DavidReimers » Aug 14, 2015 4:29 am

I need to migrate a VM from a once-daily backup job to a twice-daily backup job.

If I remove the VM from the current backup job, will it delete the existing backups in the backup repository? I have had this happen before, and luckily I still had replica VMs with a similar history.

How do I move the VM without losing the existing backup history?

Veeam 7.0 R2.

The data belonging to it will be removed in accordance with these settings.

Specify there period for which previous restore points of this VM should be preserved.

Thanks.

So if I add the VM to a new backup job (and leave the deleted VM retention period unchecked), I will have the original backup plus the new backup history?
