cancel multi-VM job

Post by meetoo » Oct 25, 2017 9:08 pm

Veeam 9.5
I have a new job with multiple VMs. One VM is large & is currently creating its initial full backup. The other VMs in the job have already completed. This job is going to run for way too long. Can I cancel it without affecting the data for the other servers that have already backed up?
Thx

Hello Stewart,I think If you are using "per-VM" option in your repository other VMs are safe..I'm not sure!

Hi Stewart,

You can cancel the job without affecting completed VMs in the backup even without per-VM repository. Thanks!

I tried to stop the job & chose 'gracefully', but it now says it has to finish processing all VMs before it can stop. At the rate it's going it will take another 24 hours. Any suggestions? Thx

"Gracefully" means it will stop after the VMs currently beeing processed. So not the correct option for you!

Force the kill from the GUI, if after a lot of time (hours) the job is still in stopping state you can do this:

- open Veeam PowerShell
- execute Get-VBRJob | select Name, Id command
- identify the job's ID
- open Windows task manager
- select command line column
- go on detail tab and sarch a Veeam.Backup.Manager.exe with the previous job's Id
- kill the process
