backup weekly

Dear colleagues!

I configured backup with options "when backup target is connected" and "no more often than 7 days". I use the B&R repository for backing up, that's why this "backup target" is connected all the time. But my backups don't make automattically every 7 days. What I did incorrectly?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Anna,

Exactly because the backup target is always connected. Can you add into your scheduling parameters "daily" and a specific hour? Then it will work. And don't forget you can start the backup through commandline also, so you can use task scheduler to schedule it more to your specific needs

Hope it helps

I can't understand: if I use "daily" options, this backup is doing every day. I don't need, cause I can't storage this huge volume of data.
Do you have any manual of sheet with all VEB cmdlets?

Anna,

If you select daily, but with the option "no more often than 7 days" it becomes an "And' operator so it won't backup every day :-)

For the command line: http://helpcenter.veeam.com/endpoint/11/backup_cmd.html

Cheers

Thank you, Mike!
I configured this option. We're waiting 7 days from this date and look at this =)
