Veeam Powershell

I have recently had to change the settings of around 40 Veeam Jobs in total so I thought I would use Veeam Powershell to achieve this task. I wanted to set the following options –

  • Change all Jobs at once
  • Disable Deduplication
  • Set Compression Level to None
  • Set Storage type to Local Target 16TB+

This is the command for completing the above requirements.

Get-VBRJob | Set-VBRJobAdvancedStorageOptions -CompressionLevel 0 -StorageBlockSize KbBlockSize8192 -EnableDeduplication $False

These can be amended using the following options –

-CompressionLevel

  • 0 – “None”
  • 4 – “Dedupe-Friendly”
  • 5 – “Optimal”
  • 6 – “High”
  • 9 – “Extreme”

-EnableDeduplication

  • $True
  • $False

-StorageBlockSize

  • 0 = KbBlockSize256
  • 1 = KbBlockSize512
  • 3 = KbBlockSize1024
  • 4 = KbBlockSize2048
  • 5 = KbBlockSize4096
  • 6 = KbBlockSize8192

You can open Veeam Powershell by opening the Veeam Backup and Replication console and selecting Tools –> Powershell.
