Modify schedule of regular backup job

Post by arun.kr » Jun 11, 2018 4:55 am

Hello Everyone,

My object was to modify the schedule of backup jobs. My jobs will run in every one hour Monday to Friday and over the weekend they will run in every 4 hours.
I have modify the schedule of a job from VEEAM power shell console. But after modifying the job something went wrong. Now i am unable to edit the same job. It throws an error "vbr failed to deserialize scheduleinfo, There are multiple root elements. Line1, Position 66 "

I have used below code. Command was completed without any error.

Code: Select all

$job = Get-VBRJob -Name *dc01
$option = $job.ScheduleOptions
$option.OptionsPeriodically.Schedule = '<Sunday>0,1,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,1,1,1</Sunday><Monday>0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0</Monday><Tuesday>0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0</Tuesday><Wednesday>0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0</Wednesday><Thursday>0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0</Thursday><Friday>0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0</Friday><Saturday>0,1,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,1,1,1</Saturday>'
Set-VBRJobScheduleOptions -Job $job -Options $option
I can verify the schedule and can run the job from VEEAM power shell console.

Output of
Get-VBRJobScheduleOptions -Job $job
after modifying the schedule.

Code: Select all

I have manually run the job and it was completed successfully but next run is still freeze.

I have not opened a support as I have tested it with one job and i have created a new job for same problematic job. Any idea what went wrong.

To return everything back try to get schedule options of non-problematic job and apply them to the problematic job. Thanks.
