Set VSS options for each machine in a job

Post by mgratla »

I've got a script worked out for creating jobs, but I need to set VSS options if the job contains a machine with a name that contains SQL

What I have to get the jobs into an array and parse them, is this

Code: Select all

$VSSARRAY = Get-VBRJob -Name $JobName | Get-VBRJobObject

foreach $_.name in $VSSARRAY { {if $_.Name -Like "*SQL*} {/code]

And here's where I'm stuck. Most of the commands seem to indicate that you'll set it for the entire job, but I want to set each SQL machine as "Ignore processing failures" and "do not truncate logs"

Can anyone assist?

Tried the following

Code: Select all

$Vbrvssoptions = New-VBRJobVssOptions
$Vbrvssoptions.Enabled =$True
$Vbrvssoptions.IgnoreErrors =$True
$Vbrvssoptions.SqlBackupOptions.TransactionLogsProcessing = "NeverTruncate"
$vbrvssoptions.ExchangeBackupOptions.TransactionLogsProcessing = "TruncateOnlyOnSuccessJob"

$vbrnovssoptions = New-VBRJobVssOptions
$vbrnovssoptions.Enabled =$false

#$vsscredopt = Get-VBRJob -Name $jobname | Get-VBRJobVSSOptions
#$vsscredopt.WinCredsId = MYGUID

$Vssarray = Get-VBRJob -name $Jobname | Get-VBRJobObject

foreach ($Name in $VSSARRAY | where {$_.Name -Like "*-SQL-*"}) { Get-VBRJob -Name $Jobname | Get-VBRJobObject -Name $name | Set-VBRJobVssOptions -Options $VBRVSSOptions }
But this returns a very... weird error

Code: Select all

Get-VBRJobObject : The specified wildcard pattern is not valid: Id: [bbdd7fdd-4043-4e6a-8b91-9a7e11ed0486], ObjectId: [4519b933-9664-4785-8a24-e722ae9be9fc], JobId: [a7dc651b-f546-4ba2-8c38-2f558e8b12e1]FolderId: [00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000]

Re: Set VSS options for each machine in a job

Post by veremin »

The following example shows how to set the required settings for job object named SQLServer that is present inside "SQL Backup" Job. It shouldn't be that difficult to make the script set VSS options for all job objects which names contain "SQL":

Code: Select all

$Job = Get-VBRJob -Name "SQL Backup"
$Object = $Job | Get-VBRJobObject | ?{$_.name -eq "SQLServer"}
$VSSOptions = $Object.VssOptions
$VSSOptions.IgnoreErrors = $True
$VSSOptions.SqlBackupOptions.TransactionLogsProcessing = "NeverTruncate"
$Object.SetVssOptions($VSSOptions)
Thanks.

[MERGED] : Set job VSS as "Ignore Failures"

Post by Dario.Palmisano »

Hello,

I would like to set with powershell, the Application-aware VSS parameter for a Job as "Ignore Failures" (Try application processing, but ignore failures).

How is it possible?

Thanks

Thanks,

if I set IgnoreErrors = $True and then access the Application-aware page of the user interface, I still see the Require success.

Is it an interface refresh problem or what?

Thanks and regards

Post by veremin »

This setting is object specific. So, did you set it up for a particular VM present inside a job?

Code: Select all

$Object = $Job | Get-VBRJobObject | ?{$_.name -eq "Name of VM you want to setup the setting for"}
Thanks.

Now I got it!

The settings regards the VM not the job (maybe not well expressed, but it works!)

Many thanks

Correct.

If you want to set this setting for all VMs, you should create a loop similar to the following:

Code: Select all

$Job = Get-VBRJob -Name "Name of Job"
foreach ($Object in ($Job | Get-VBRJobObject))
{
$VSSOptions = $Object.VssOptions
$VSSOptions.IgnoreErrors = $True
$Object.SetVssOptions($VSSOptions)
}
Thanks.

[MERGED] Change default SqlLogBackup for entire job

Post by ivarson »

So our DBA's decided they want all SQL logs backed up every 60th minute, retained for 7 days.

I made a script earlier to have a VM added to the specific SQL-job, but by default Veeam truncates the logs, so we have to enter the B&R console to edit every single item after adding them. (or changing it for multiple vms at once, but still an additional step)

Can I set this via powershell?
Either change the default settings for the job or atleast scripting it for the specific VM being added.
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95

Code: Select all

PS > (New-VBRJobOptions -ForBackupJob).sqllogbackupoptions

StorageIntervalValue : 1
StorageIntervalUnit  : Hour
BackupIntervalValue  : 3
BackupIntervalUnit   : Minute
RetentionType        : PerOib
DailyRetentionDays   : 14
can this be used to change how VMs gets their transactions logged backup up, if so, will I affect every single option for the job with this?
the property Sqllogbackupoptions is readonly for the job itself so appearently you have to set all options at once?

Also, if you can't determine the values, I always recommend creating a test job as you want specific options to be set, then investigate those settings with PowerShell.

It's much quicker to find the specific settings that way.

What am I doing wrong here? I have a VMWare job and I'm trying to set the SQL logs to not truncate and BackupLogsFrequency to 60 min via powershell. After running the suggested code, it still shows "TruncateOnlyOnSuccessJob" and 15 minutes for frequency

$Job = Get-VBRJob -Name "VMWareJob1"
$Object = $Job | Get-VBRJobObject | ?{$_.name -like "*SQL*"}

write-host $Object.name
SQLServer1

$VSSOptions = $Object.VssOptions
$VSSOptions.IgnoreErrors = $True
$VSSOptions.SqlBackupOptions.TransactionLogsProcessing = "NeverTruncate"
$VSSOptions.SqlBackupOptions.BackupLogsFrequencyMin = 60
$Object.SetVssOptions($VSSOptions)

(get-vbrjobvssoptions -job $job).sqlbackupoptions
TransactionLogsProcessing : TruncateOnlyOnSuccessJob
BackupLogsEnabled : False
NeverTruncateLogs : False
BackupLogsFrequencyMin : 15
UseDbBackupRetention : True
RetainDays : 15
ProxyAutoSelect : True
CredsId : 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000

You are setting the job object VSS options, but then displaying the job VSS options afterwards.

Which are your trying to edit & confirm?
