Feature request...

Post by zadrian » Jun 19, 2018 3:00 am

Here are some feature requests for "Licensed" version...

1. Enable "backup now" from the Veeam B&R console for some clients (especially for testing or failed machines)
2. Do not set "low storage" warnings in user backups (then we get all jobs with warnings)
3. Allow multiple schedules for same job
4. Allow schedule for backup cache sync (we do not want "boot storm" like on Monday mornings if machines were set to backup daily, especially for notebooks where users bring them home).
5. For personal files backup, allow selection of certain users OR allow removal of administrators or "system" users.

With regards to number 2 do you mean o disable notifications when a user/admin initiates the backup?

Hello zadrian.

This option is available for managed by backup server job type. For managed by agent job type indeed there is no way to initiate backup as Veeam B&R mainly acts as configuration distribution server, but I've added your vote to this feature request.

This particular warning can be disabled via regkey.

Multiple jobs functionality is planned.

Will it work if network traffic from agent side can be throttled?

Can you please clarify are you talking about user folders or user profiles? Thanks!

1. Why the need to warn users if "Veeam server repository" is low on storage....should warn admins. This makes users panic. Should be visible warning option on the Veeam server.

2. If you look at 10 users, maybe. But if you look at 100 or 1,000 users....then throttle shd be done at the server side. At least veeam server have view of number of running agents and maybe throttle both bandwidth and repository write speeds.

3. There is an option to choose "personal files" and it will select files from c:\users (win 10).
