clone job or create new and copy settings

Post by AlexL » Sep 18, 2015 1:00 pm

I need a duplicate of a job with ALL it's specific settings and I want this duplicate to get a specific name. This could possible be done in a few ways:

#1 copy-vbrjob and with some parameter set the new name
#2 copy-vbrjob and rename the _clone1 job afterwards
#3 create a new job with the name I want and somehow duplicate all the settings of one job to the new job.
#4 ?

#1 and #2 do not seem possible, so perhaps the way to go is #3. How would I do this exactly?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Alex

Just a quick question - what product version are you currently at? v7 or v8? Thanks.

Ok, then, option 3 seems to be the way to go. What particular setting you're willing to copy? Just general job settings, such as repository, retention, etc.? Or settings such as source objects to backup, application aware VM specific logic and so, should be copied, as well?
