veeam 12 - move backup capability query

Post by skate88 »

hello
with this new feature, excuse me if i have missed it but i didnt see anything mentioned in the documentation

existing backup jobs (pre veeam 12) do not have this option
newly created jobs do

any way to change this without recreating all jobs ?
also backup copy jobs are now called legacy
again do they have to be recreated ?
whats the difference between legacy and whatever came in v12

thanks

Hello Neil

Is your question for this popup notification?

This new method works for all jobs using our new True Per-Machine (Per-Machine with separate metadata files) backup format introduces in V12. Please check in your environment if all jobs were changed/updated to the new format. It's a manual process done by the backup administrator.
Backup Job - Changing Backup Chain Formats
Backup Copy - Upgrading Backup Chain Formats

Legacy Backup Copy Jobs are pre-v11 backup copy jobs with the legacy periodic copy mode. They must be recreated and old chains must be mapped to the new job. You can also use our script.
