Feature Request: multiple Veeam B&R repositories via CMD

Post by » May 03, 2016 1:09 pm

Today I tried to make a backup to a different location with veeam endpoint 1.5. The simplified interface from veeam endpoint has not such an option. After a few minutes of searching through the web I found the option to use the commandline( ... p_cmd.html). My problem with the commandline ist that I can't adress a 2nd repository. I only can specify a folder or a networkshare. To use a networkshare is not an option because it's not possible to use different credentials and I think(not tested) it's not visible in the veeam backup and replication userinterface.

I would like to use a 2nd(or any other) repository in the veeam endpoint commandline to store backups apart from the default veeam endpoint repository used in the scheduled task.

theoretical example: "C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.EndPoint.Manager.exe" /standalone <Repository:RepositoryName>

Hello Sebastian,

Indeed, existing CMD ‘standalone full backup to another location’ command allows you to store a full backup to local folder or shared folder only. Counted as a feature request, thanks!
