besides the automaticly scheduled jobs I have around 54 manual backup jobs and they are increasing every month.
Those manual jobs contains VM's who can only be backuped when the vm's are down (shutdown state).
Those vm's contain no data only OS and inhouse build applications, so there is no need for regular backups.
The manual backups are only taken after a software update and when that specific production line they control is down for maintenance.
The backup's are taken by the production engineers (during night and weekend shifts) and not by the backup admin..so it should be any easy Gui process,like a standard backup job and not a powershell script.
I tried "quick backup" but that doesn't satisfy my needs,because then the job should already exist,wich is not always the case...also there is not option to set a default repository for Quick backups and I would still have alot of jobs.
My idea was to create 1 manual backup job based on a vcenter tag "Manual Backup" and then tag all those vm's..The only thing missing is a vm condition state,Let's say backup only the vm's in that job that are down
Thank you for any help
