Is it possible to have multiple jobs backing up a single server working in parallel?

Post by mkr »

Hi everybody,

Is it possible to have multiple jobs backing up a single server working in parallel?
At the moment, only one backup job is running at a time. The others report "machine is locked by another Task". Is this related to snapshot creation?

The jobs back up different partitions (3 in total) of a single server, (which is also the backup server) to 2 different backup repositories (both NAS, SMB share).

Thank you in advance!

Vss snapshots should not be done at the same time from two different backup Jobs/Products.

Perhaps, you could use "After this job" option. But keep in mind it's not available in "Managed by agent" mode.

Thanks!
