Case Ref: 00724778
Hi all, please bear with me, this is officially my first post on the forum and not quite up to speed with the form yet.
I was suggested by Veeam support to post my question/issue here for help from the forum.
Our company is still fairly new to Veeam and just going through the pain of early stage tweaks and fixes to get it running smoothly.
My current problem, some background information, I am trying to setup a backup job to disk, and then an automatic tape job to follow, this is a monthly backup of specific systems that we archive to tape once a month on a specific date each month.
My first issue, the built in schedule of Veeam could not handle once a month on a specific date with a full back up so a tape could be done after, it was suggested I use a script to execute the job so I could use windows scheduler to control the schedule, which with my limited knowledge of Power-shell and manual in hand, I managed to do this.
The backup runs perfectly, but it does not kick off the backup to tape job afterwards, even though it is set to run after that job, I have now been informed that when exciting a backup job via a script the following jobs will not run by design.
So I am looking for options, and the only one I can think of at the moment, is run the backup job by script, and add an extra line to the script or something so it runs after the backup and starts the tape job, but I am not sure this will work, and also I cannot find within the manual how to start a tape job.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
