Im learning Veeam Bacup and Replication, and I have some questions regarding configuration, and need some explaining:)
I want to have 7 restore points on disk, and then 1 week set and 1 month set and 1 year... like GFS. So im wondering if im configuring it correct, this is what I have done
I have configured a job under Jobs>Backup and set the Retention Policy to 7. If im correct then it will keep 7 restore points on disk, it does not mean 7 days.. It runs once a day, so I guess it will keep a week
Then I have configured a job under Jobs>Backup Copy. On the first screen I have kept it default "Copy every 1 day", not sure what it does here? I see the explanation there, but still not clear.
Then on the "Virtual Machines" I have selected "From Jobs" and selected the job I have created.
On the "Target" I have used default and selected Restore points to keep 7 (not sure here either, is this always the same as the one I created in the Backup Job ? why do I need to specify here also ?
Then I have weekly=1, Month=1, Quarterly=1, Year=1.
Do I need to configure both a Jobs>Backup and Jobs>Backup Copy... cant I just create a Backup Copy ?
This is not clear to me, I have read documents, but it would be greate if someone could explain it a bit better for a person that has issues understanding it
Thanks for reply.
