Veeam Endpoint Backup administration: Integration with Veeam Backup & Replication
Some time ago, we released Veeam Backup & Replication v8 Update 2. Why is this update important for Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE? The answer is pretty simple – starting from Update 2 you can use a Veeam Backup & Replication repository as a backup destination. Besides using a Veeam Backup & Replication repository as a backup destination (target) you receive many more possibilities. Let’s start today with the integration, data protection tasks and the additional administration possibilities that you get.
Prepare the backup repository
Before configuring Veeam Endpoint Backup job to use a repository as backup target you need to take care of repository access permissions. I bet you don’t want your production backup repository to run out of space because of uncontrolled end- user’s backups, so we got you covered.
You can delegate access to specific users, groups or even computer accounts. The procedure itself is very easy and well described here: http://helpcenter.veeam.com/endpoint/10/integrate_permissions.html
Important note – default backup repository will have ‘allow everyone’ access permissions from scratch for testing purposes and quick demo setup but we strongly advice to remove these permissions in production environments. Another note is that you can’t use a cloud repository as a target, but we will come back to that later.
