Feature Request - Trigger based on PC IP

Veeam Logoby TJ127 » Thu Jul 02, 2015 6:46 pm

We are testing this software out on some of our laptops that we have in the organization to see how it worked and if we could migrate to this software.

While we were testing we ran into this issues and am looking for a way to resolve it.

We set the laptops to run a backup at lunch time since most users should be online and user should be less impacted :)

The problem that we ran into is that we have about 15 different locations that are all connected across an MPLS link, several of the links are less then 10MB and we have users that travel between them. All the locations have a different ip address scheme so if i could set something like -- backup at noon if ip is between 10.1.6.30 - 10.1.6.254 so that i don't have users trying to backup and flood my MPLS links?


Thanks for any help in resolving this

Hi TJ127,
Interesting request – as a part of existing functionality you could add the slow link to the metered connections and use ‘disable backup over metered connections’ but that would work only for Windows 8 and above.

I will have to try that on a windows 8 box :)
however most of our clients are windows 7 so that will not help
