Feature Request: Backup job wait for tape job to complete

Veeam Logoby namiko78 » Mon Sep 14, 2015 12:38 pm

When I have a tape job that takes 24 hrs + , the main backup job kills my tape job. I'd like the option to have the main backup job wait for the tape job to complete, so I don't have to manually put it on hold.

Thanks

You might want add a pre-job activity for a backup job that will check whether the linked tape job is still running and putting the backup job on hold until the tape one is finished. Thanks.

You mean a script of some kind? Thank you for this option but it's not something I know how to implement, hence the feature request :)

Understood.

As to the script, it would be fairly simple:

1) Check the latest job state.
2) If it is equal to running, wait a pre-defined interval and, then, proceed to step 1. Otherwise, proceed to job execution.

If you need any assistance with scripting, kindly, create a topic in the corresponding subforum.

Thanks.
