Veeam Backup and Replication Essentials and Basic Edition Missing Feature – Clone


So I’m trying to clone a backup job in VBR Essential Basic; you know, so I don’t have to waste time going through the wizard again just to change the destination… but ut oh… I discovered the “clone” menu item is greyed out…
Exhibit A: image

After a little trip to the google and back I found an article that states:

The job cloning functionality is available only in the Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions of Veeam Backup and Replication.

^ boooooo hissssss
