Error trying to set options in veeam

Post by Jois » Nov 20, 2014 8:23 am

Hi,
I am not very good at PS scripting and I am trying to run 2 scripts from this post http://forums.veeam.com/veeam-backup-re ... tml#p73343
When I run the first script, that is:
Add-PSSnapin VeeamPSSnapin
$JobOptions = Get-Vbrjob -name "Vi-test#31" | Get-VBRJobOptions
$JobOptions.BackupTargetOptions.TransformFullToSyntethic = $False
$JobOptions.BackupStorageOptions.EnableFullBackup = $False
$Job.SetOptions($JobOptions)

I get this error at line 5:

You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression.
At D:\Veeamscripts\syn_full_14\prepare.ps1:5 char:1
+ $Job.SetOptions($JobOptions)
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [], RuntimeException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : InvokeMethodOnNull

Can anyone help me figure out why?

You have not defined $Job variable in your script.

In order to make the script work, change the first lines a little bit:

Code: Select all

$Job = Get-Vbrjob -name "Vi-test#31"
$JobOptions =  $Job | Get-VBRJobOptions
Thanks.
