Disappointing v8 Feature Implementations

Veeam Logoby justind » Mon Dec 15, 2014 9:38 am

My thoughts on two features in v8 that I was looking forward to that disappointed:

1. Monthly job schedule improvement: Why would you only implement this for backup jobs and not backup to tape jobs as well? Running a monthly backup to tape job on any given day of the month would be handy.
2. Last chain backup: Why would you only have this for the first backup to tape job run? I like others would like to run a full backup periodically and not have to worry about ridiculous work-arounds.

The features are 99% implemented. Why wouldn't you go all the way? (and yes, I agree the new synthesized full backup to tape feature is cool but I'm not going near anytime soon)

With these two features fully implemented I could do away with quite a few PowerShell scripts that incidentally are broken because of the Get-VBRTapeJob bug :(
