Detect Veeam VMware Snapshot and do SAN Snapshot

Post by jayal1972 »

Hi all!

Is it anyone who have thought of doing a SAN snapshot exactly when Veeam have done a VMware snapshot (thru a script).
To have a consistent snapshot of the virtual guest.

I found several usable scripts on the web needed to be modified.
The question is how to do this at the right moment (exactly when Veeam have done a Vmware snapshot).
Best thing would to detect this in the post script action but how do you detect it correctly? Anyone know?

Thanks in advance

Hi. I have thought about this :D At this time, this would require hooking specific Veeam function, and injecting your own code into it (code that issues SAN snapshot creation command). Definitely not something you can do with external script... leave all hopes.

Does not your SAN provide tools for creation of consistent snapshots though? That is pretty common functionality among major SAN vendors...

Thanks.

Post-Job activity in Veeam:

Hi again,
is the Vmware snapshot who Veeam created in the backup removed before the "Post-Job activity" in Veeam run?

Yes, snapshot is committed, then the job finishes and after that "post-job activity" is triggered.
