Seeding a backup copy Job

Veeam Logoby lasselu » Thu Aug 03, 2017 4:45 am

Hi All,

I'm using Veeam B&R 9.5 and attempting to create a Backup copy job to an offsite location starting with a seeded repository.

I have copied the repository files to the offiste location, added the remote repository to Veeam and selected import existing backups. This completes successfully.

However, when I create a Backup Copy Job, under target, when I select the remote repository and click map backup - No backups are listed.

I have tried to rescan the repository / delete and re-add the repository, but still no luck.

On the backup copy job, I have tried different combinations for Source repository and VMs / backups jobs.

I feel like I must be missing something simple - Can anyone offer any guidance?


Thanks!

Hi and welcome to the community!

You don't need to import those seeded backups, rescan should be sufficient, also keep in mind that you can map copy jobs only to backups created by incremental backup method and the backup shouldn't be encrypted.
Please review this step by step guide about creating seed for the backup copy job. Thanks!

Did you copy VBM file along with the backup chain itself?

After much hair pulling, the solution was simple..

The backups were encrypted. I need to type in the encryption password...
