Feature Request for VeeamZIP

Post by Samba222 » Apr 10, 2017 11:53 am 1 person likes this post

Hi Support-Team,

it would be fine to see in the "Veeam Backup & Replication Console" -> Backups -> Disk (VeeamZIP) not only the "creation time", but also the "Expires In" (like in the tape media pool view) and also the "User" who created the ZIP.

The "User" Tab would also be fine in the History View because i can't retrace in the GUI which user started, for example, a Quick Backup Job for a VM (this applies to all manually started Jobs).
We are several veeam administrators, so these informations would be important.

Thanks!

Sam

As we can't snapshot a template via the API this won't be possible anytime soon without first converting the template to a VM.

Can't you just file copy required template? Or you want to have certain compression and retention applied to resulting file? More information regarding the use case wouldn't harm. Thanks.

Thanks 8)

I like to have my backups in Veeam. That's why file copy is not an option. Compression and retention is nice to have, but not a must. So why not use an normal Veeam Backup Job? We are cloud provider and have a "pay per VM" license model ;-)

@Samba222, sorry for the thread highjack!

Marcel

Got it. If a template doesn't get changed regularly, and it's more like one-time operation, you can convert the template to VM and back it up, as Niels suggested. Thanks.
