Feature request - pre- and post-backup commands

Veeam Logoby NickViz1 » Fri May 19, 2017 8:49 am

Hello,

I want to additionally protect my backups with AirGap tool (https://sourceforge.net/projects/airgap), or for instance I want to open a VPN channel to backup unit outside LAN and close it after backup.
For that it would be very interesting to be able to run a script (command) before the backup and after the backup is finished. Not sure if it was cut off from free version intentionally, but it would be nice to have.

Hi Nikolai,

Thanks for sharing your request. If you are using scripting, you can initiate a backup after desired command. Backup can be started via command line like described here.
