Running scripts before and after snapshot

Post by jochot » Jun 01, 2018 11:48 am


I remember, that in the agent you had 4 options for running scripts:
-before job
-before snapshot
-after snapshot
-after job

I am having a mysql database running and I'd like to stop it before the snapshot and start after the snapshot, as the snapshot only took 7 seconds.
Now with the new version (distributed via R&B 9.5 Update 3) we only have the options before and after job, which I assume is longer than 7 seconds.

I'm wondering if I just didn't find the option or if it has not been moved to the new agent?
And how I should then proceed with my mysql database?

The scripts are still there, you can find the control in Guest Processing options. Please keep in mind, that the scripts that are run before and after snapshot (pre-freeze/post-thaw) require Server edition of the Agent.
