Backup profiles in Backup Management Console

Backup profiles let system administrators configure backup settings for multiple devices as one.

Backup profiles are available to the following types of customers: resellers and end-customers.

Support for profiles is supported for Windows, macOS and Linux backup devices

Once a backup profile has been created, it cannot be moved to another partner. Profiles created at the reseller level can be applied to end-customers underneath this reseller, but profiles created at end-customer levels cannot be applied to other end customers or resellers.

When a profile is assigned to a device, the Performance tab of the Backup Manager GUI will no longer show the Abort backups and do not start backups when limited time frame is reached for these backup data sources option.

Pre- and post-backup scripts are not compatible with backup profiles, so once a profile is assigned to a device, the Scripts tab under Preferences will not be displayed.
