Good afternoon all,
Like you know, many of us are using "parallel processing" feature to improve performance and reduce the backup time window.
Unfortunately, this feature is "global" and cannot be disabled on specific job.
In our case, for some jobs, we have to be sure to process VM in a specific order (egg. "cluster/DAG" applications which must be put in maintenance mode, script to execute before to backup the other VMs...).
If we are not able to grant the processing order, the production should be impacted (network flapping, database down or placed in protection mode...). Create multiple jobs (one VM per job) to ensure that the order
is granted is not a solution.
Is it possible to add this feature in the next release?
option 1: simply the possibility to disable the parallel processing feature at the job level
option 2: add the possibility to disable the parallel processing for VMs (still at the job level) added in job asa "VM object" (and thus not like a container where VM order cannot be specified).
Thanks for your feedback or comments about this new feature.
