Job Consolidation

Veeam Logoby DREPSO » Wed Dec 02, 2015 7:03 pm

I have several jobs created that backup VM's on a 1 to 1 basis, 1 job for 1 VM. Is it possible to take the existing backups and consolidate them into one job? If so, how would I do that?

~Thanks

- Create a backup copy job, selecting existing backup jobs as its source
- Let the backup copy job finish its initial cycle, creating a valid restore point (be aware to specify different target repository for it. Otherwise, it will sit in "idle" state)
- Create new backup job, mapping it to the backups created by the backup copy job

Thanks.

Thanks for you reply Eremin. It's telling me that I have to move all the backups to the new repository before I can create the backup copy job.

A brand new backup copy job shouldn't ask you to do that. You can ask support for guidance in performing the described procedure.
