Backup Copy job - restore point every year th. 31. March

Hi
We have a customer where we have configured Backup copy job to archive monthly restore points. Now the customer also like to have a yearly restore point every year the 31. March. In the GUI it is not possible to set yearly restore point to other months than December and January. Are there any way through powershell to accomplish the function?

Nope, it's not possible to select different months (apart from January, December) with the PS either. Thanks.

They could make a one time backup (not copy) with a regular job. Just make one job, don't schedule it but run it via the task scheduler. You can specify to run an active full every time like this:
Code: Select all
Add-PSSnapin VeeamPSSnapin
Get-VBRjob -name "Backup Job Windows" | Start-VBRJob -FullBackup -RunAsync


If you really want to copy, you could do it manually but that will require you to copy the whole chain. Honestly I think that is more cumbersome

Finally, if it has to be done only once a year, it might be easier just to do it manually.

Hi Thanks for your replies.
I chose the Start-VBRJob solution
