If you set the ' backup now more often than X ' option to 1 day - then yes



Hi Dima,

So I have it set up exactly like this but now it wants to run as soon as i get into work in the morning and get connected to the network which means that now it will not run at the scheduled time of 11:30am. Any thoughts or is that normal behavior?

Adam,

That seems like correct behavior. You have a schedule that gives you a backup on an event (the connection) and a schedule (11.30 am). You also have the X option set to 1 day. So from the moment the last backup is 1 day and 1 second ;-) old, the first next trigger of the two (the connection or the schedule) will kick in and do the backup.

Makes sense?

Mike,

I did not think about setting that option to 1 day.

Now My question/concern is that with the schedule configured to run at 11:30 am every day but only when that connection is available, what happens after the weekend when that connection is not available. I am assuming that then I come in on Monday morning at 7:30 am that the job will run immediately as it would be long past the X option and from there on out would keep running at 7:30 am, correct?

Adam,

Yes, the backup would indeed run at that morning because of the connect. And then I assume the same will happen the day afterwards when you arrive at 7.30 again. Your scenario is indeed not that simple (but I do admit it gives me ideas for working on schedules :-))

I am sorry, I was not clear. You can add network, which is used for VPN, to the metered connection. I know there are several limitations, for instance you can’t add some Wi-Fi networks or Ethernet connections.


Hello,

the connection "Wifi" i have marked as metered, but over VPN backup was done.

Mike,

I am so glad that made since when I typed it all out haha! Truthfully I can think of 2 ways that might be pretty simple to implement and people would/could/should easily understand, 1st would be a simple check which days you want this to run just like with VBR since that works great or you could maybe have a drop down list that has a few options (run weekdays, run weekends, every second Tuesday, every 1st and 15th) something like that.

Just some thoughts off the top of my head.

Definitely, Love the product. It's why I was excited to try out VEB!

I think i mentioned it before but just in case, I am willing to be a bit of a guinea pig if you ever need some real world testing.

Hello,

the case was solved.
There was some differences between RC and RTM.
"when you were using RC Build 1921 metered connection works only for 'when backup target is connected' schedule that why you`ve got your issue. Now in release build Veeam EndPoint metered connection works for all type of scheduled events"

[MERGED] Backup more than daily

Veeam Logoby rereduck » Mon Jun 22, 2015 4:02 pm 1 person likes this post

Hello All,

First I'd like to say that I'm trying Veeam Endpoint on many PC that I cannot virtualize with my my Veeam Backup repository (since patch 2 release) and it works very well and very fast ! Great product for a V1 :)

Now I would like to know if is it possible to schedule a backup more than daily ? If not, is it planned to do so in future releases ?

Thanks

Hey,

Yes you can by combining different events together. This is probably not completely what you seek but it is work-around for now. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that when you combine triggers and the daily together, that you need to set the "backup no more often than xxx hours" lower. But when you look at the triggers, you will notice that they are specifically written for endpoints and not for servers, and I assume from what you have written above that you are more looking into servers ;-)

So please let us know what you are exactly looking for and if you want triggers or simply a schedule that allows a backup every 6 hours or something...

Thanks

Mike
