Re: Feature Request - Multiple Jobs

I'm sorry - this means "Thanks a lot" (was iPad Autocorrection).

One strange Idea:

I create my Job to Backup to S:\Veeam_Backup, the Catalog and the Files are on this Place.

What if this is an iSCSI Backup Target, maybe Monday to Saturday is S: connected to Server 192.168.250.x (Remote Network) and on Sunday is it connected to my Server 192.168.50.x (an closed local Network).

VEB takes every Backup a look in the Catalog and calculate which files are needed, based on the Catalog in the specific Backup Target, right? If this works, i can create Tasks, thats connect/disconnect to specific Backuptarget based on the Day (PS: connect-iscsitarget ... / disconnect iscsitarget).

Or are the information in the lokal SQL Server, and this doesn't work.

Copy the Backup Files to an other Destination are no option, cause they are very large and they in an VPN Network.

Not within the VEB, but you can use any script to copy the backup file, it can be batch, PowerShell or just a robocopy script.

Might do the trick, but every time there would be a full backup (after changing the backup target).

I'd like to give me reason for multiple jobs.

We are using Endpoint in conjunction with Enterprise and leveraging the repository with Cloud connect to do offsite backups on physical servers. I would be great to do a full image backup and a second job of targeted data saved to the repository to push offsite. We have some customers with large disks and limited bandwidth.

Hi Tom,
a full image backup
How about creating one standalone full backup which contains entire computer backup and then set the regular scheduled backup for only critical data?

In my opinion it is best to make a backup of your entire computer and important data regularly.
Example:
Critical data: for example, once a day
The entire computer: Once a month.

Then we avoid installing tens of updates after the recovery the entire computer. Currently I have to change the settings every time when I want to backup entire computer.

Still Feature Request.

Regards
Jan

I would like to have multiple jobs also, so adding my voice to this thread.
I would like to have one job that backups up the system drive on my another hard disk (volume C to D or others), and a separate job that backs up many directories on drives D, E and etc.

Thanks for your feedback, as you can see this is a pretty often FR. On a side note, since OS files don't change they shouldn't take space in the backup repository with incremental backups, right?

Hi all, I was checking the forums and bumped into this. I too have high interest in the multiple jobs FR. My use case is slightly different (as can be seen in this thread.

vmware-vsphere-f24/question-on-restorin ... ml#p195667

So bottom line:
  • If your workstation/server/whatever to be protected is really big in size (like ours 27Tb) you would rather split up (divide et impera) than have all your eggs in one basket
  • It turns out that VEB (only) is capable of restoring vRDM volumes to vRDM volumes (VBR can only do it from vRDM to vmfs based volumes)
  • I wouldn't mind if you would have some kind of restore agent present (and VEB is very close actually to such a restore agent) in a VM. Using that is should be possible to restore a volume present in VBR .vbk file to a local volume. (because with VBR I can have multiple jobs and a can make backups of vRDM disks.

Thx, nice to hear, well it would be nice to know if that would ever make it into an update of some kind for VEB at any point in time :-)

This request is in the list, so yes there is a possibility. Can’t give you any ETA unfortunately.

[MERGED] Save multiple backup profiles

Post by DenG » Aug 18, 2016 10:23 am

Hi,

I would like to know if it's possible to save more than one profiles within End point free or more exactly if I can schedule more than one backup. I thought I could find command line of veeam backup in the Microsoft scheduler but it's not the case and so, I think that this is made by the veeam service ?

thanks

Denis

Hi Denis,
