Ad hoc Full Backup

Veeam Logoby SimonGreen » Mon Oct 24, 2016 10:05 am

Hi all,

Is there a way of taking a full backup in VEEAM without impact on existing scheduled backup jobs and the chains created?

I've got a number of Forward Incremental backup jobs but we have signed up to Cloud Connect for DRaaS and I need to get full (physical) backups over to the provider so that we can seed the replication.

Appreciate any insights.

Regards,

Simon

Hi,

You can setup a backup copy job so it synthesizes a separate full on another repo or just setup a new backup job and run it once.

Thanks

Thanks for this.

Can a seed be created from the synthesized full backup that I have in my current backup chain? Which files would I need .vbk and .vbm and would this have to be at the point the full backup was created i.e. before any more incremental backups?

Regards,

Yes, you can use synthetic full .vbk + .vbm as a seed.
