Re: V8 Backup Jobs Not Starting

Perhaps we can give you the choice interactively by throwing a message box when the started job has other jobs chained, and giving you the chance to determine desired behavior at that moment (whether you want to execute the entire chain, or just this selected job alone). Will that work for you?

[MERGED] : Veeam V8 Manual Backup

Post by darryl.crossley » Feb 26, 2015 3:06 am

Good afternoon all,
I'm encountering a change in V8 which has been questioned by one of my clients.

In V7 when starting a job manually via the GUI, any jobs which were set to run upon completion would start.
In V8 this doesn't appear to work. Any jobs that run via the schedule do work, only the manually started jobs fail to function correctly.

Is this expected behaviour in V8? Is there a way to toggle the behaviour?

Thanks

Darryl

It's expected behaviour with version 8. We're thinking about giving a choice to user whether or not manual job start should result in chained jobs' execution. So, you can provide your opinion regarding the alternative Anton has suggested. Thanks.

Hi Anton,
This sounds like a fantastic idea to work around this particular question, Patch #2? :D

I suggest a simple solution:
@Veeam: Please add "Start with Chaining" to the context menu. All the v7 users will be glad aggain.
Could be a nice give-away for the upcoming Patch #2 of Path #3 of v8. :wink:

MORE VOTES PLEASE!!!!!

Ah yes please! That would be brilliant :)

Sounds good. Cannot be sure at this point if it makes it into P2, or will have to wait for P3.
