Enhancement Request - adhoc backups

Post by ski98033 » Mar 08, 2017 5:47 pm

I would like to make is easier to do an adhoc backup. Right now if I need a one off backup of a machine that is not backed up, I have to create a job, etc. etc. I like the quick backup option, but it only works for machines that are already backed up. it would be nice to be able to just do a quick (full) backup with one click.

Also i would like to be able to do an adhoc copy of a single VM from a backup job to another site (e.g. AWS tape for long term archive). The business case is that we will have a VM often before major upgrade that we need to keep a copy of longer than our normal retention time. Currently, I have to create a special backup job to do this. It would be nice to just copy that machine from the existing backup to the long term archive repository.
