Yes, this makes total sense and is already acknowledged as an important feature > Backup VM within a Job - especially SQL?

Any chance that this will be a feature in Update 3?

I know that "Quick Backup" is an option but that only works if there is an existing full backup. If I add a new VM to backup, I would like to be able to kick off a "full" backup on that newly added VM without the need to run the eintire job on all the VMs.

Update 3 does not have this feature implemented. So, for now the scripts and Quick Backup (for cases where full backup is there) are the only options. Thanks.

[MERGED] Backup only one VM within a job with powershell

Veeam Logoby Dani » Wed Dec 06, 2017 1:55 pm

Hello

We have a backup job configured to backup all vms on a specific volume.

Virtual machines to backup: "cluster shared volume 01"
Runtime: every day at 10PM.

Additionally, we want to run a backup of one VM whithin this volume every 2 hours from 8AM to 6PM.

What would be the best way to do that?
Would it be possible with a powershell script?
If yes, how?

Thanks,
Daniel
