Feature Request - One off Active full on next scheduled run

Veeam Logoby gsroute » Wed Feb 01, 2017 1:42 pm

I've got a support ticket in and have been asked to run an active full, as this is currently production time I want to run this at the normal scheduled time. I've set the active full backup days to today (as well as the normal active full on Saturday) in order to achieve this but I will need to log on again tomorrow to undo it again so it doesn't then carry out an active full next week.

It would be nice to have an option to have the next run be an active full so it will automatically revert back to normal next run.

Thanks.
Graeme.

You might want to use VeeamZIP to take one active full backup out of backup job schedule or leverage simple PS script that will execute a full backup cycle without affecting job schedule. Thanks.

VeeamZIP won't work here - support asked them to perform an Active Full for their existing backup chains.

BTW, Graeme - what was the reason for this request? I don't like it much when support asks for Active Full, as in many cases it means that there's some bug in the product that will remain unfixed and will kick in again and again in future... unless they also confirmed a bug with the devs, and gave you some timelines for a fix.

Hi Gostev,

The suggestion from support was a possible database corruption, it was weird as only one of the VMs from all in the job that were failing. However the active full did resolve the issue.

Thanks.
