Challenge

Move existing Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV backup files to a different Veeam Backup and Replication Repository.

Solution

Note
  • This process only works when moving backup files between Repositories of the same Veeam Backup & Replication server.
  • Ensure that the job whose backup files you are moving is not running and will not run during the entire migration process.
  1. Locate the backup chain. In the Veeam Backup & Replication console navigate to [Backups]->[Disk], right-click the entry and select open backup properties, take note of the path to the backup files.

    Example: E:\Backups\
Initial Location
  1. Navigate to the repository path via File Explorer and locate the backups within the job to move.

  2. Move the backups to the new location.

    Example: F:\Backups\

  3. Rescan both the original repository and new repository.
  4. If the backup files are not encrypted, skip this step.
    If the backup files are encrypted, they will appear under the Backups > Disk (Encrypted) node. Right-click the backup and select Specify password. Then enter the password to decrypt the backup files. More Information
Decrypt backups
  1. The moved backup chain will appear under the Backup -> Disk (imported) section.
After import

  2. After the next run of that job, the moved backup chains will shift from the Backups > Disk (imported) section to Backups > Disk. The backup policy will use the new location as a target repository.
