powershell script to check backup schedule

Post by govi » Jul 02, 2019 9:15 am

Hi Guys,

Any one got script which checks backup schedule at certain interval, if backup schedule is suppose to run on Thursday @ 4.00 PM , before 30 min, it call one software (basically VPN client exe) and VPN client connects automatically( this part will be take care by VPN client, we just need to trigger VPN client). Before calling VPN client it needs to check for if LAN interface has DNSDomain name=xyz.local, if yes, then do nothing, if no then call for VPN client .exe

Reason for doing so,

When we use veeam agent to backup computer on local repository and when computer moves out of local network, example public wifi, backup fails so we want to force system to connect to VPN and do the backup.

Why to check for DNSDomain name

We have got multiple location and all the locations are connected to site to site VPN, so logical connectivity exist and veeam agent can reach to repository from any branch office. If we try to run VPN client, it will not get connected since computer is already connected by VPN(site to site VPN) and it will attempt again to connect by vpn client. So just want to avoid such kind of scenario.

Thanks,

Govi

The script should

- check NextRun property

Code: Select all

asnp VeeamPSSnapin
$Job = Get-VBRJob -name "Name of your job"
$Job.ScheduleOptions.NextRun
- Compare it with current date
- Run the given software if the difference is 30 minutes or less

By the way, what type of job are you planning to check? Backup, backup copy, replication? I'm wondering as the approach to checking NextRun property might be a bit different, depending on the job type.

Thanks!
