[MERGED] How to backup datastore

Veeam Logoby bungle » Mon Nov 03, 2014 4:08 pm

I am using VBR ver 7.0.0.871 and have added a Hyper-V Cluster ver 2012 R2.

From the Virtual Machines tab > View I can change to datastores and see the CSVs presented to the cluster.

I want to create a backup job against a datastore rather than cluster, host or selected VMs but I cannot seem to find the option in job settings can someone please let me know if this is possible.

Hi Mark,

Currently, hosts, clusters or individual VMs are available as source for the backup job. How many CSVs do you have per Hyper-v Cluster?

Thanks!

At the moment 5 CSVs, wanted to split the backup jobs across 2 repositories as not enough room to fit all VMs on one

Got it, it seems like it could be possible to create jobs based on CSV containers via PS script (according to Vladimir's comments), though I'm not a great expert in PS.

Okay thanks I have found a workaround, from the Virtual Machines > View Datastores select the corresponding CSV and expand to list the VMs it contains, Ctrl-A to select all VMs then right click and add to new backup job, name the job with the corresponding CSV name.

Its not dynamic so spinning up new VMs on a particular CSV wont be protected by the corresponding job so will have to be a process in place so new VMs are added manually to backup job.

But at least I have grouped my VMs by CSV so they can be sent to different repository.
