Start-VBRJob & chain

Post by MarcinS » Nov 04, 2015 9:47 am

Hi Guys,

i have 2 jobs (1 backup and 1 replica). Replica job should go when backup job finish

- when i start backup job manually it work cause ask that there are jobs in chain and ask if replica should be started
- when i start backup job from scheduler it also work ....and replica is started after backup finish

unfortunately i found that when i start backub job by script

Get-VBRJob -Name "BckJob" | Start-VBRJob -RunAsync

it not start replica after it. Is any syntax to add for Start-VBRJob command to start also jobs in chain ?

Hi MarcinS,

Can you please tell me why would you like to chain these jobs? Do you process the same VMs with them or there are some other considerations? As to chaining jobs with PowerShell, then I believe you just need to trigger them via separate cmdlets in the same script, our PS community should assist you with the script.

Start-VBRJob doesn't take care about chained jobs, indeed. Thus, to execute job in required order you have to start them one by one, similar to the following:

Code: Select all

Start-VBRJob -Job $Job1
Start-VBRJob -Job $Job2
Start-VBRJob -Job $Job3
