In a Veeam Backup & Replication environment with a high number of jobs, being sure the configured settings are all the same can be a tough task. Even if there are defined procedures to create new jobs, and every IT admin has these procedures, an error can always happen.
If you have few jobs to check, you can think about opening all of them one by one anche verify this parameter, but as the number of jobs grows, these checks becomes nearly impossible.
A nice solution is to leverage the complete Powershell support offered by Veeam Backup & Replication.

Veeam Backup & Replication allows users to choose among several different backup methods to fit their need. Each method has its own strenghs and weeknesses, and there is always a tradeoff between used space on the backup storage and the amount of activity (both from the cpu and the IOPS generated on the storage) required to complete the backup.
However, backup designers often evaluate only the used space, keeping low attention on the impact each chosen method has on destination backup I/O. This is fundamental in the choice of the backup appliance so that backup times do not go over the desired backup window.
We will analyze in this paper the available methods and their pros and cons. We will assume standard disk storage is used; different analysis may be required if deduplication storage appliances or other different systems are used.
