Veeam CLI command to globally enable encrytion


Userlevel 2

I’ve been searching and trying different commands to set the flag to “enable backup file encryption” within the VBR “Configuration Backup Settings”.

While I can see how to create the password with the API with the Add-VRBEncryptionKey shown below, I don’t see a command to set the flag above.

 Any help would be greatly appreciated...

The Set-VBRConfigurationBackupJob is what you’re looking for. More specifically, the EnableEncryption parameter.

Here’s a list of all PowerShell cmdlets working with the VBR Configuration Backup:
