This currently isn't a feature, but would like to request it to be an feature upgrade in the near future. Currently we have Endpoints, now Agents, that backup to our Veeam Backup and Replication server repository. When we go into the Console for Veeam Backup & Replication, we can see the Agents that have backed up. I would like to be able to right click one of the agents and select Start to be able to initiate a backup versus having to go to the Agent computer and running a backup manually. We sometimes know that some Agent computers that we have don't get backed up on a regular basis whether they are rarely in the office to do a backup, so when we know that the Agent computer is in the office, it would be great to just go into the Console, find the agent computer, right click and START to backup the computer immediately.
I see that there is a Statistics and History options when right clicking in the Console for Agents, but they are greyed out. I am assuming that these options will be available eventually.
