Copy Backup Job ONLY when repositore becomes available

Post by wsafe » Nov 02, 2017 11:40 am

Hi,

It's possible to configure a Copy Backup Job to run only when the target repository becomes available?
For exemple, if I use USB HDDs, the job fails each 30 minutes (and sends a lot of emails), until I plug the disc...

Tks

Hi,

It's not possible out of the box, however you could disable backup copy job and use a script that checks HDD availability and triggers sync for backup copy job.

Thanks

It's possible to sync a "disabled" copy backup job??

I dont need to automate it... clicking the "sync" context menu works for me, but with the job disabled I cant click "sync" (it's disabled on the context menu).

You're right, sync operation is not possible for the disabled job, however you can try this workaround, which will give you the automation as well > Veeam Jobs "Backup Copy" scheduling
