I've already seen topics on this subject, obviously it's impossible to configure it with the job schedule.
So I used the command line : "C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Backup\Veeam.Backup.Manager.exe" backup 8b62d8c8-a5a7-440f-92c1-fe322b0ac937 with Windows task scheduler for running my job on the first of the month.
It's ok for the first running, but after, the job performs an incremental backup, how can I get my full backup the other times?
Is there an other command line to run an Active full backup ? I don't want to click on Active full backup in the job's shortcut menu every month.
Have you an other idea to do this?
Any help will be appreciated.

I believe the simplest way to perform Active Fulls on the 1st day of each month would be to use PowerShell. All you need to do is to create a new "Basic Task" in Windows Task Scheduler and set it to start every 1st day of the month. As an action you should specify a powershell script containing Start-VBRJob command with -FullBackup option. Here is the example:
Code: Select all
Get-VBRJob -Name "YOUR JOB NAME HERE" | Start-VBRJob -FullBackup
