Step 6: Initiating a Backup

After configuring a Protected Item and Storage Vault on a device, you can commence backups. This can be done either from the client or from the Zmanda Pro server.

To initiate a backup using the Zmanda Pro console:

  1. Navigate to the Users page on Zmanda Pro console and choose the user associated with the intended protected item.

  2. Select Protected Items and click on Run Backup next to the protected item you want to back up.

  3. In the wizard, choose the desired storage vault and configure other settings as needed.

  4. Click Backup.

If there's an ongoing job, you can monitor it on the Job History page and stop it by clicking the Cancel button.

You can set up multiple Backup Jobs, which can be directed to different Storage Vaults.
