Post backup script

Post by asgard79 »

Hello,
I need to script a simple action, like delete some directories, after sucessfull backup.
I discover Veeam option to do that. If I understand, I must create a primary script (with windows extension as .ps1 or bat). This script is called by veeam. Secondary script contains command to execute.
In my case, I run a putty command to establish communication with my linux agent. When I run this script manually, all is good. But when backup job launch it, i've a time-out error.

My primary script is :
puttypath\Putty.exe" -ssh userlinux@hostname -pw password -m Script.sh

My secondary script (here script.sh) create a touch file in /tmp.

First of all, can you help me to understand time out ? Secondary, is there other option to crypt password ?

Thanks

The service account for Veeam - does it have access to the Linux server you are trying to get the scripts to run on? Check this out - https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... ml?ver=110

Hi,

It depends on what kind of post script you are using and what kind of management mode for Agent you've selected. In one scenario you can get your script executed directly on the Agent machine, while in the other scenario the script will be executed on VBR server.

Please take a look at this page to learn more about the differences between different scenarios.

Thanks!

Thanks.
My VBR is Windows. I configure a backup job to use Veeam agent on my Linux server.
In backup job, i've fill up scripts in Advanced Setting :
"After the job" : execute .bat script (my primary) which call my secondary script.

If Agent can be execute script directly from OS, where can I stored it ?
