Feature Request - Backup mailbox by type or wildcard names

Veeam Logoby pmansfield » Thu Dec 01, 2016 3:44 pm

I appreciate the product has just gone GA, and I'm sure there is a load of work going on behind the scenes to improve it further, but I wanted to add my tuppence!

Would it be possible to backup mailboxes according to some 'rules'? At the moment, we can backup either all mailboxes, or we can manually create batches of mailboxes and keep updating those backup jobs every time we need to add a new mailbox or remove a non-existent one.

What would be useful is to have some supersets of mailboxes (all user mailboxes, all resource mailboxes, all shared mailboxes), and/or the ability to backup mailboxes based on wildcard names (for instance room* to backup all mailboxes whose names start with 'room').

In a similar way, I backup datastores in B&R to capture any newly added VMs rather than having to manage backup jobs to keep adding and removing them.

But thanks for the product, and especially the free licenses for existing B&R customers!

Hi,

Good request! I will take this with me to the discussion table. As always, I don't promise anything (it might be more difficult to do than saying it) but it is certainly worth checking. How do you look at them today? Do you use PowerShell to query them? Or the UI?

Thanks
Mike

At the moment, I don't back them up. I've been looking at various options, but hadn't settled on anything.

Sorry, probably wasn't clear from my side... How do you query them for information in your subscription today? Through the O365 PowerShell or the O365 UI from Microsoft.

A bit of each to be honest, depending on what it is I want to do.

Just to sort of 'tag on' to this request, some sort of filter on the mailbox based on the GAL details (Company, city, etc.) would be handy. We have what is effectively a multi-tenant setup and ideally I would like to create jobs based on the 'company' attribute. If I could filter based on 'company = acme' and then add all of those mailboxes to one job, that would helpful.
