Hi Ashley,

There are no updates since my last post. I would suggest to use Veeam ONE monitoring and capacity planning capabilities for backup repositories to avoid situations when you're running out of free space.

Thanks!

[MERGED] Manually Trigger Synthetic Full Backups

Veeam Logoby aarumugam » Wed Oct 19, 2016 1:29 am

I am using Veeam 9 and trying to do a Synthetic Full Backup. Seems there is no way in the UI to trigger one.
So tried using powershell commandlet and still couldn't get it.
Doing a search landed me on this post and still no luck

Code: Select all
Add-PSSnapin VeeamPSSnapin
$Job = Get-Vbrjob -name "Name of your job"
$OptionsToSet = $Job | Get-VBRJobOptions
$OptionsToSet.BackupTargetOptions.TransformFullToSyntethic = $True
$OptionsToSet.BackupTargetOptions.TransformToSyntethicDays = (Get-Date).DayOfWeek
$Job.SetOptions($OptionsToSet)
Start-VBRJob -Job $Job
$OptionsToSet.BackupTargetOptions.TransformFullToSyntethic = $False
$Job.SetOptions($OptionsToSet)


Appreciate any help in this regard.

Hi,

Please use Windows task scheduler combined with these scripts to trigger synthetic fulls:

To enable
Code: Select all
Get-VBRJob -name “JobName” | Set-VBRJobAdvancedBackupOptions -Algorithm Incremental -TransformFullToSyntethic $True -TransformIncrementsToSyntethic $False -TransformToSyntethicDays “Saturday”


To disable
Code: Select all
Get-VBRJob -name “JobName” | Set-VBRJobAdvancedBackupOptions -Algorithm Incremental -TransformFullToSyntethic $False -TransformIncrementsToSyntethic $False -TransformToSyntethicDays “Saturday”


Thanks

So tried using powershell commandlet and still couldn't get it.

What exactly didn't work with the provided script? Did you execute in manually or via Windows Task Scheduler? In the latter case, try to run it manually under admin account and see whether it works or not. Thanks.

[MERGED] Manually execute Synthetic Backup on v9?

Veeam Logoby sanjaykrk » Thu Dec 01, 2016 5:31 pm

Hi,
There is an option to manually execute Active backup. I couldn't find out similar option for executing Synthetic from GUI.
Is there a power shell command or equivalent to force Synthetic?

Hi,

Currently there is no way to trigger syntectic full with a single command/click, please check this thread for workarounds.

[MERGED] Manually create a synthetic full

Veeam Logoby douglas.carson » Sun Dec 11, 2016 4:48 am

Hi Guys,
I am doing a bit of testing with Veeam 9.5 and ReFS.
Is there a way to manually kick off a synthetic full?
I looked and from previous posts there were a few thing around running powershell scripts but they didnt work for me.

Thanks

Hi Douglas,
What powershell script did you try? You may also change the job schedule for a while to get the full backup.
Thanks

[MERGED] Backup schedule not working as expected

Veeam Logoby ste.weise » Mon Aug 14, 2017 2:15 pm

Hello,

I don't know if this is a known bug or a bug at all, but it seems strange to me.

I have set up a chain of backup jobs. From Mondays to Thursday creation of incremental backups shall start at 7 pm automatically (as it's configured in Schedule - Run the job automatically - Days...). On Fridays I'd like to manually start synthetic full backup chain after finishing several service and maintenance activities (synthetic full backup is configured in Storage - Advanced - Backup - Days...). Regardless, this job also automatically starts on Fridays at 7 pm.

Doesn't make sense to me. Any ideas?

Hi Hans and welcome to the community!

Since you've assigned Backup jobs to start daily from Mondays to Thursdays at 7 pm, the periodical synthetic also assigned to start at 7 pm.
Also, there is no way to manually run synthetic full, but you will find a few workarounds in this existing thread. Thanks!
