The scripts provided on the previous page are a bit outdated.

What happens if you try the following ones, instead:

Disable job

Code: Select all
Asnp VeeamPSSnapin
$TapeJob = Get-VBRTapeJob -name "Name of your Job"
Disable-VBRJob -Job $TapeJob


Enable job

Code: Select all
Asnp VeeamPSSnapin
$TapeJob = Get-VBRTapeJob -name "Name of your Job"
Enable-VBRJob -Job $TapeJob


Thanks.

Hello Vladimir,

is there anything new about a better solution than starting a script every time? I can't see any benefits by using a script or by disabling the specific day of the week in the job options. No matter how I will do it, I have to do it manually each time or I build a script that knows the holidays and is running all the time.
For now, the missing option to consider holidays on the program side is the only thing that bother me at Veeam.. Other software can actually handle that.
Thanks a lot!

Best regards, jdehn

Hi Julian, thank you for the feedback, however, currently you still have to address this manually, as described in this thread above.

With script and Windows Task Scheduler it is one-time operation, which requires you to look over all public holiday dates in calendar and schedule scripts to take place on needed days. However, we do understand it's a time-consuming process, indeed. Thanks.

[MERGED] Feature Request: Copy Tape Job Holiday Calendar

Veeam Logoby westCPS » Mon Jan 16, 2017 4:29 pm

Hello!

We often get the request from customers for Tape Copy Jobs that some dates should be excluded from Copy Tape Jobs.
(Christmas and so on.)
Is there any other possibility at the moment, or only to disable the Job :-( (and hope not to reactivate after Holidays)

Best regards

Hi Werner, no built-in functionality for this, however you can find some hints in this thread. Thanks.

I am evaluating Backup Software right now and this is a feature that would be nice to have. I don't understand why this software doesn't already have this ability. We migrated from a custom system (built 25 years ago) using tape backups and it had a holiday schedule.

Hi
This year just changed Backup Exec with Veeam based on a perceived superiority of this solution.
This thread began in 2011.
At the time the scheduling overhaul was taking the holiday exception problem into account as far as I can understand.

What went wrong?

As the last poster hinted, it should not be so difficult to implement the scripts that were suggested into a feature that exists for ages in the backup industry.

I am a tad disapointed.

I see it as a little disrespect for the customer needs.

No disrespect intended :D it is all about higher priority features pushing out lower priority features. Implementation is easy indeed (as for most features), but this change touches too much functionality in the product - all schedule-dependent stuff - thus requiring a major QC effort to test. This, and very low value to the product on the other hand, are the only reasons.
