Executing a Backup Policy at Once

You can manually execute a backup policy to back up an associated ECS immediately.


  • If an ECS is being backed up, you cannot manually execute a backup policy on it.
  • If a manual backup job is still in progress, scheduled automatic backup operations will be postponed to the next backup cycle. An interval of at least 3 hours is recommended between a manual backup operation and a scheduled automatic backup operation.


At least one backup policy has been created and has been associated with at least one ECS.
