schedule backup jobs one after another - possible?

Post by joergr »

Hello,
is it possible to do backup-jobs one after another, e.g. to tell the scheduler of veeam b+r 4.1 to start the backup-job a at 10pm and when this job finishes to continue with job b? that would avoid guessing how long job a would take. And for some jobs, i want to be sure theys don´t run at the same time.
best regards,
Joerg

Thanks Vitaliy,

now one last question: Would it be okay to simply paste this string which is shown at the very end of the job config process 1:1 to the after-job-script field? And with 1:1 i mean to include everything exactly as printed, with the quotation marks and all. Would this be ok or do i have to care about the path in which context veeam b+r runs at this time?

best regards,
Joerg

Joerg,

Yes, it would be ok. Just create a batch file containing the job command copied from the wizard step to trigger the next job.

...or simply copy the line to post-job script text box without creating any BAT file

Hi ojgarnews269,

This thread is "a bit" outdated, this functionality was added to the UI many years ago. Take a look at this article and please let us know what is not working in your case. Thank you.
