Monthly Full Backup Job scheduling bug

Veeam Logoby apurva » Tue Jul 18, 2017 6:58 am

Hi All,

I think there is bug or some issue when we want to configure just monthly full backup for a VM. The scheduling option are at 2 places, 1st at active full section of advance option under storage and 2nd at schedule itself. In 1st option it don't have date of month as selection but in 2nd option you have date of the month as option. So which will supersede ? Example I want to run just monthly full backup on 1st of every month then what will be the settings?

Hi Apurva,
Both schedules will work. So if in your case the job will run twice, with 1 full and 1 increment.

HI Shestakov,

But we want only once a month as full backup. Can you explain what 2 option should be if we want monthly backup to run on 1st of every month.

Unfortunately it`s not feasible via UI to achieve such a schedule, however you can leverage powershell scripts to run the job with active full on particular day.
Or you can create Veeam Zip job and run on 1st of each month with task scheduler.
