For example, remove all of the backup objects from the job, add an object that contains no VMs, modify the job to run the synthetic full that day, and then trigger the job to run, after the synthetic full finishes put the original objects back in the job. Never tested it though.
I'm convinced it's just a simple call to VeeamAgent, but it's just never crawled up the tree to be important enough to investigate. I have many cases where triggering the synthetic full separately would be nice.
Sorry I know this is a really old thread but this is exactly what I want to do because creating the synthetic full takes 24hours+ (~6.4TB) for me. I run 3 backups a day and want to create the synthetic full after the LAST backup of the day at 18:00 not after the first, 05:00.
Will the command above work in v7 Patch 1?
I didn't really want to just try it as it may mess up my current backups etc.
