SureBackup Linked Job Advanced options in Powershell?

Post by JoshuaPostSAMC » Oct 18, 2016 8:21 pm

Is there a way to retrieve and set Advanced options in the Linked Job section of SureBackup? I have a Surebackup job configured for each of my regular backup jobs that I add the advanced options for specific VMs that need extra scripts or longer boot times, but I am interested in making a single job that has all of the backup jobs linked for execution in one pass, but I want to import all of my advanced options from each separate job in.

I was hoping to retrieve the advanced settings from each job and pipe them into the one job, but I'm not seeing how to do that in the powershell reference documents

Alternatively, I would like to be able to schedule the Surebackup jobs to follow each other, but not seeing that either, only to have them run after each backup job completes which isn't how I want it to run.

Nope, it doesn't seem possible via PowerShell.

Hmmm, have you tried to add and configure one "golden image" SB job manually and, then, clone it?

Check this PS approach; might be useful.

Thanks.

Did 9.5 expose any additional options in Powershell and SureBackup Advanced options under Linked Jobs?

I at least would like to be able to export all of my current Advanced options in the event I would need to rebuild the job, but if I could retrieve that information, it seems like I should then be able to add it to a separate job as well.

Nope, SureBackup cmdlets have not been enhanced any further in version 9.5. Thanks.

[MERGED] SureBackup - AppGroup startup options ID# 02289562

Post by chrisit » Aug 23, 2017 4:45 pm

Hi,

Could you please allow us to set default values for AppGroup's startup options?

Currently it is set to 600s for boot and 120s for application init.

If you could create a registry entry to be modified or write piece of code to be available in Powershell.

Thanks,
Chris

Currently, those settings are not configurable via PS, but your voice has been heard. Thanks.

Veeam, you are a fantastic bunch! So, in the latest Veeam Backup&Replication Update 4 the API reference shows exactly what we have asked for.

The joy has arrived. Thanks again, I am now able to write an automation script for testing our VMs...

Chris, that cmdlet is for use with Staged Restore. It does not get associated with Application Groups for SureBackup.

That functionality will come in a future release.

Consider your voice counted, it's already planned for one of the next product releases. Thanks!
