Link Backup Copy jobs to follow corresponding Backup jobs

Veeam Logoby cffit » Tue Sep 01, 2015 4:25 pm

I have backup copy jobs that are based off actual backup jobs. Is there a way to have the backup copy job automatically kick-off after the corresponding backup job finishes?

The problem is that on the weekdays the incremental backup jobs run in a short time, and on the weekend the full backup jobs take much, much longer. So setting a time for the backup copy job to run that follows the backup job is not possible given the weekend backups take longer and VEEAM does not allow in the GUI to schedule backups to have different schedules for weekends vs weekdays (which is what I really want). I know the scheduling can be done with powershell, but I don't like having to go that route.

Set the backup copy job copy interval to start 5 minutes after the source backup job is scheduled to start. This way backup copy will sit and wait until new restore points are created and will start copying data once they appear.
