The problem to let veeam scheduler decide is that you can't define which day of the month you want the backup copy to run.
The backup window is only weekly, not monthly.
I have 8 main jobs that needs to be GFS so it's 8 backup copy jobs.
I need to schedule the jobs at precise day of the month to not overlap with windows deduplication schedule.
Also veeam has no option to disallow backup copy jobs to overlap in activity time.
So if I check monday in backup window for 2 jobs, they will run at the same time, whereas they only need to run once a month and we have at least 4 mondays in a month...
Anyway, I know veeam can't do that, what I'm asking is can I do that using scripts ?
Please review and tell me :
I was thinking :
[job] Copy every : 1 day at 09:00 (I believe I don't care about this setting in fact)
[target] GFS enabled, 12 monthly backups (with First sunday or whatever, as I don't care like the setting above, since I want to start the copy manually), "Read entire restore point" checked
[Schedule] : Any time
Disable the backup copy job
And setup windows scheduled task :
run : first saturday at 10:00 am (or any other time I want), Sync-VBRBackupCopyJob -Job "<Job_Name>"
Would this works ?
Would this also run the backup files health check if I check "Perform files health check" and "Monthly" and the same day I run the windows scheduler task ?
Do you see any pitfall in this ? Any better way to do it ?
