Command line interface

Post by oglmark »

Is there a command line or scripting interface for Veeam backup 3.

I want to be able to copy the backup images to an offsite location and then automatically restore them.

Thanks

Hello, at this time we do not have scripting interface for Veeam Backup.
Currently, we only provide capability of starting backup/replication jobs from command line.

Hello Gostev

Do you have a description or an example for the command line. I'm actually searching a solution to restore a backup on a scheduled base. This I'd like to do in a batch via command line.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks for your answer in advance

Ritzo, it is possible to start backup/replication only via command line at the moment. Starting restore is not supported.

is there a possibility to shut down a VM before backing up or take a replik?
Maybe execute a command in guest to shutdown database (Lotus Domino on Red Hat Enterprise)
and start it afterwards?

I am not sure, the Snapshot + VSS would work secure with Domino ...

David, what do you think about using pre-freeze script for this?
