Programmatically stopping a running backup

Veeam Logoby llichte » Tue Jul 18, 2017 5:25 pm

Hello, I need a command-line or Powershell option to stop a backup in progress. We automat our patches on a pair of Agent for Windows 2.0 servers and I need to be able to stop the backup to patch the servers. According to Veeam support, this is not something they help with, and I need to go to the forums. I know that the Backup Manager has a way to START the backup, and I know the PSSnapin has a stop job CMDLET, but I can't find a stop command for the former, and I can't find an installer for the latter.

Anyone know?

Hi llichte,

Looks like the only way to stop the running job via script is to kill the backup process running in Windows Task Manager.

Is there a risk of that being destructive to the application if application processing is enabled?
