I need to run a job Quarterly...

Post by jbarrow.viracoribt » Mar 11, 2013 1:06 pm

I've been asked to run a job on the 1st day of each quarter so Jan1, Apr2, Jul1, Oct1. I don't see how to schedule this using the default scheduling options in Veeam. How would I do this? Can I use Task Scheduler to fire off a backup job for me?

Hi, Jonathan.

In the way I see it, PowerShell script responsible for starting your Job along with Windows Scheduler should answer your requirements.

For more information please the existing topics at Veeam PowerShell subforum:

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

I'm not that familiar with powershell. What do I change here to specify my job name? The job name is "RA-QA (Backup)" in Veeam now.

Code: Select all

-command &{Add-PSSnapin VeeamPSSnapIn; Get-VBRJob | where {$_.Name –eq “Server1”} | Start-VBRJob –FullBackup;}

Jonathan, you should replace "Server1" with "RA-QA (Backup)" in this commandlet.

Also you can use this way (doesn't require PowerShell scripts) to start your jobs with Windows Task Scheduler: Backup schedule
