v7 Parallel VM processing, per job

Post by link12 » Sep 04, 2013 2:04 pm

We recently upgraded our Veeam environment from v6 to v7. We have 1 backup job in our environment that we would like to disable parallel VM processing and run it sequentially like in v6. I could not find anything in any documentation on how to do this. All I could find was the setting in the GUI from the root level, but could not find anything at the job level. When I run this Powershell command I get this which indicates to me that we can change the options some how.

Powershell command
(Get-VBRJoboptions -Job "Job Name").options

Please, be aware that parallel processing options are set globally not per job.

So, if you want to process virtual disks of a given VM consequently, you’d better set explicitly number of concurrent tasks either in settings of proxy server or in settings of backup repository.

The easiest workaround for now is to create a second repository (it can point to the same disk, perhaps a different folder), and limit that repository to one concurrent task.
