At this moment it is not possible out of the box. There is a workaround (see http://www.virtualtothecore.com/en/send ... d-connect/ for more details).

This request seems to pop up more and more so our PM and engineers are aware of it and will take this as a count for the feature request ;-)

Hope it helps
Mike


Thank you for the site suggestion Mike.

I followed the steps outlined and had partial success. I am able to create, export and load multiple profiles. One profile is a local backup job, scheduled for 12:00AM launch, the other is a Cloud Connect remote backup , left unscheduled in the VAW 2.0 configuration. The local backup runs as expected, the batch file process SEEMS to work correctly (scheduled using windows scheduler, loads the Cloud Connect enabled profile, runs a backup, then reloads the Local backup profile). When I check the Cloud Connect repository, I can see the VAW 2.0 job ran. It shows a status of success; however it displays 0 bytes sent and received.

When I manually load the Cloud Connect enabled profile on the VAW 2.0 client, I can see that the jobs ran but failed with a login error. The baffling part is the credentials used in the batch file match exactly the credentials used to initially setup the job. When I manually run the job it also fails with an invalid credentials error, yet the configuration of the job is successful using the same exact credentials. :shock:

Thoughts?

In VBR Free Edition you need to click in the top ribbon bar, view and then Full Functionality mode. Now in the UI you will see the Backup Infrastructure tab and you can then create a Repository and add the Agent Permissions.

I do recommend you updating however to the latest GA version 2.0.0.700.

[MERGED] Feature Request - Support for multiple jobs (Window

Veeam Logoby syoung » Mon Jun 05, 2017 11:10 pm 1 person likes this post

Veeam Agent for Linux currently has support for multiple jobs via the Server license, however Veeam Agent for Windows offers zero support for multiple jobs. I think adding this feature to the Windows agent would make a lot of people happy, as well as increases sales.

Who else would like to see this feature in the NEAR future?

Cheers,

Hi Spencer,

Welcome to the forums!

This request has been asked already a few times and our DEV teams are watching this space so your vote is counted here (but that doesn't mean it will make it into the next version ;-))

Another vote for VAW having the capability to run local and offsite backup jobs!

I too vote for native support for multiple backup job capabilities, with differing types, target repositories (local or remote) and retention policies.

Thanks to all of you. The multiple jobs have been marked as a top priority request. Meanwhile do not forget that you still have an option to create a standalone full backup any time it’s required.
