[MERGED] Manual health check

Post by jrwilmoth040707 » Jul 01, 2019 9:35 pm

Greetings,

I need to run a manual health check on a copy job. How can I do this either by GUI or PowerShell?

Thanks!

Hello,
yes you can with the Veeam.Backup.Validator.exe

Usage is described in KB2086 and there is a UI from a partner

Best regards,
Hannes

It's not the same thing, though, so, check this thread before choosing one approach or the other. Thanks!

Dear Veeam, why is it still not possible to configure within Veeam Backup a separate job for the health maintenance task? I am still hoping this will be added as a feature in a coming release. The health task is delaying chained backup jobs. Best, Fredo

Hello,
to answer the "why": because separate maintenance jobs with additional schedulers would create additional complexity. our goal is to avoid complexity.

chained jobs are not recommended... to avoid the delay I suggest to schedule the jobs something like this:
job 1: 10:00 pm
job 2: 10:01 pm
job 3: 10:02 pm

by doing that you get the required order and no delays due to maintenance tasks

Best regards,
Hannes

I strongly disagree with this statement. The way it works now results in unexpected behavior, very long run time of jobs that can conflict with other jobs and is very inflexible. See previous posts including mine for examples.

Please overthink your standpoint on this topic. More complexity means more control and more flexibility in this case.

Regards
Stephan

it's okay to disagree - I just gave you the answer for your "why is it the way it is" :-)

As I mentioned earlier: if you want to do it manually with powershell you can run Veeam.Backup.Validator.exe with a powershell script and schedule it whenever you like
