Scheduling Veeam Endpoint Backup

Veeam Logoby rmeinen » Thu Jul 07, 2016 6:09 pm

Currently I see no way on the configure backup screen to scheduled the Endpoint backup monthly. Is there a way to do this? Monthly works better for us. We would like to use this product in place of Symantec Ghost to backup a dozen or so workstations each month. IT folks, Developers, etc.

Hi Randy,

Yes, there is no option like that, but you can use Windows Task Scheduler and command line script to initiate Veeam Endpoint Backup job.

Hope this helps!

Does the command line script run a full each time? We only want one copy and would remove the previous one using retention policies.

You can script it to do either backup you would like, a bit more information in the Helcenter

Cheers!

It says I can perform a full or incremental and I see the command to perform the incremental: "C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.EndPoint.Manager.exe" /backup. What I don't see is the one for the full in the help center. Thanks

Em...what about this one, right after "Creating Incremental Backups" section?
"C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.EndPoint.Manager.exe" /standalone

Yes, that is what I decided to go with. I tested it and it does create a full backup. I thought it stated it does not do retries like the daily or weekly but I added one retry to the task scheduler. It still sends me an email confirmation so I think that will work Thanks for you help and quick responses.
