I have a set of VMs which are being backed up. I have setup two backup jobs containing same VMs, but using two different backup targets. I would like to run those tasks one after another, so I do not get "Failed" message when one job tries to backup VM which is being backed up by another. Is there a way to wait for release of VM? Or chain backup jobs, so that only when first finishes - second starts? Or the only way to do that is to use Windows Scheduler and use C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Veeam.Backup.Manager.exe backup xxxx?

Yes, many people chain backup jobs to achieve this (search forum for daisy chain). It might be a bit simpler to schedule a single PowerShell script with multiple consequent Start-VBRJob cmdlets starting different jobs though (script example can also be found on this forum).
