Backing Up To Multiple Destinations

Post by AlexLeadingEdge » May 04, 2016 3:01 am

I was looking at these two links today and I was wondering if it is possible to script VEEAM Endpoint Backup 1.5 to do a Full Backup to a second location? I really like this new feature but I don't want to have to do it manually every day or so, and that is where a Windows Scheduler script would come in handy.

You can use B+R repositories to create Backup Copy jobs to another location.

Hi,

Check Performing Backup with Command Line Interface article. You can create a standalone full backup to local folder or shared folder via cmd, so it’s possible to set a customer script and add in to task scheduler.

@Togenshi The company is a small business, they can't afford B&R. If they could afford it I would of course recommend it as it is a good product, we use it for all the virtuals servers on RAID arrays.

@Dima This is excellent! Is it also possible to do a one off full backup to a location (as a starting reference) and then do an incremental to the same location using a script? I tried this script but it didn't work:

Code: Select all

C:\Windows\system32>"C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.EndPoint.Manager.exe" /backup C:\secondbackuplocation\

Code: Select all

[09.05.2016 10:58:01] <01> Error    Invalid args: unknown argument [C:\secondbackuplocation]

C:\secondbackuplocation\
Have you created this folder prior the script execution?

Yes :) I also tried C:\secondbackuplocation\ within quotation marks.

Now I get it - you are trying to use the /backup key (for incremental backup) in conjunction with backup to another location key which is impossible.

You can create an incremental ad-hoc backup to the location specified in the job settings or you can create a full backup to the desired location.

For last option, you should use this command:

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.EndPoint.Manager.exe" /standalone C:\secondbackuplocation\
