When a backup policy is configured in Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure, the job doesn't start automatically on a backup schedule.

This is a known bug of the software and the fix requires a patch installation directly in the system.

 

Install the fix

After copying the patch provided by the support (patch Fix_263734_34880afcb0.zip) to the appliance (you can use WinSCP), stop the service with the following comand:

# sudo systemctl stop veeamazurebackup

veeam-backup-azure-fix-schedule-not-working-03

Install the package using the command:

# sudo apt-get install /tmp/veeamazurebackup_1.0.0.261_amd64.deb

veeam-backup-azure-fix-schedule-not-working-04

After few seconds the patch installation is completed successfully.

Start the service veeamazurebackup with the command:

# sudo systemctl start veeamazurebackup

veeam-backup-azure-fix-schedule-not-working-07

Now login to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure and schedule the job

After applying the patch, the job now runs on a backup schedule.

The fix for this issue is quite simple to apply and takes only few minutes.
