Hi Micha,

Not sure I fully understand what you're talking about. Would like to start VeeamZIP jobs according to a defined scheduled automatically?

Thanks!

Currently there are no PowerShell cmdlets that would allow you to launch VeeamZIP jobs, see this topic for further details: 6.1 - VeeamZip Scheduled jobs?

On the other hand, If you're using paid version of Veeam B&R then you can schedule your backup jobs using PS scripts. Please take a look at existing topics for cmdlet examples: http://forums.veeam.com/search.php?st=d ... d%5B%5D=26

Reading back through my response above, there are no PowerShell cmdlets for Veeam ZIP yet.

With free version you can do ad-hoc backups only. If you want to use jobs scheduling, you should be using Veeam B&R Standard/Enterprise versions or Veeam Essentials bundle.
