Renaming VeeamZIP backups ?

Veeam Logoby antipolis » Wed May 17, 2017 9:49 am


Just wondering if it's possible to rename a veeamzip backup

If I backup a single VM with this functionnality then the backup takes the name of the VM in question, but if I select multiple VMs the resulting backup is just named "Backup"(+ the date), which is not super helpful

Tried removing the backup from configuration, then rename the .VBK and import it again, but the name "Backup" stays

Thanks in advance

Most likely the name is stored in the database and/or in the backup file itself, so it's not that easy to rename it.
