Problem with Start-VBRJob

Post by Wieland »

I'm using the CLI for starting Backupjobs. But on some machines I get the following error:
Start-VBRJob : Value was either too large or too small for an Int32.
At line:1 char:57
+ Get-VBRJob | where {$_.name -eq "EMEAW6"} | Start-VBRJob <<<<
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (Veeam.Backup.Po...and.StartVBRJo:StartVBRJob) [Start-VBRJob], Overfl owException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId :Backup,Veeam.Backup.PowerShell.Command.StartVBRJob
The syntax I use is (EMEAW6 is the servername):

Code: Select all

Get-VBRJob | where {$_.name -eq "EMEAW6"} | Start-VBRJob
However, the Backup is running in the veeam console and finishs successfull.

Thank you for your help,
Sebastian Wieland

Hi Sebastian, this issue was reported before, and it is fixed in the next update.
For now, as a workaround please use Start-VBRJob with -runasync key.

Hi, I have the same issue, but i must wait the end of the veeam backup to start other jobs (backup to a LTO) in my cmd script. How can i do that ?

I've wrote a little workaround for me:

Code: Select all

Add-PSSnapin VeeamPSSnapIn
$server = "EMEAW6";
$job = Get-VBRJob | where {$_.name -eq $server};
$check = Start-VBRJob $job -runasync;
$job_id= $check.id;
While ($check.State -ne "Stopped")
{
$check=Get-VBRBackupSession | where {$_.id -eq $job_id };
Start-Sleep -s 10;
}
$result=Get-VBRBackupSession | where {$_.id -eq $job_id };
echo $result;
The script starts the job and waits until the job has the status "Stopped". The output is the same than without the runasync parameter

-runasync means that PowerShell script execution will continue without waiting for job to finish first.
Manual of PowerShell cmdlets is built-in directly into snap-in, this is described in the User Guide.

Hello Olivier,

This is a Microsoft-related issue, something is wrong with powershell itself / mscorlib.
I found some information using google search http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/asp ... troke.aspx
You may also try using this search to solve your problem.
