Pre-backup script, SQLAnywhere 10 (non-VSS)

Post by sl4sh » Oct 24, 2012 3:08 pm

Hello, I am new to veeam and am looking for a way to execute a script on the target machines pre-backup. I have several machines that are running Sybase SQLAnywhere 10 databases, which are not VSS aware. There is a dbbackup utility that we use to back up the database as a scheduled task. I have scheduled veeam to do its backup a couple hours after that runs, but i'd like to be able to do it together.
Any suggestions on how to best handle this backup scenario are welcome!
Thanks

You need to use VMware prefreeze/postthaw scripts functionality. Please search the forum for existing topics regarding this. Thanks.

Hi.

You can also use powershell script to launch a sequence of actions such as:

1. run dbbackup.
2. start veeam job(s).
3. send email report with results of previos actions.
