I've got about 2000 .baks on my datadomain that I need to send to tape every month. They come in the form of:
Except they're much longer and annoying. In the past, I've moved these files within the datadomain to 5 different monthly folders, and used a different software to backup those 5 folders onto tape. Worked great, but the DBAs don't like their files moved, go figure. But, I may need to keep doing this.
What would help them out is if I can take the 2000 cifs paths that they provide me and plug them into Veeam in a mass fashion and have it churn through the list. I feel like this wouldn't be too difficult for the software, but all I've been able to find so far is https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95
and it's not really meeting my needs. It does appear that I can enter in one full path and have it backup that file. But I can't click add 2000 times
. This is so close to the path import function I'm craving.
Anyone have an idea how I might skirt around this? Veeam Engineers...any chance for a feature request here? I'd like to add tons of cifs paths to a file-to-tape job or point the file-to-tape job to a .csv or .txt and call on that to get the paths.
Any help is MUCH APPRECIATED!
