UPS Shutdown Script

Post by harleyd » Oct 07, 2014 4:17 am

Hi there,

I would like to setup a custom UPS batch script that can stop any running Veeam jobs when the power goes out. Can anyone please tell me how/if this can be done via at batch script?

Hello Derek,

I am not aware of how this could be done thru the custom batch script but I guess this task could be achieved thru the PowerShell: Stop-VBRJob.

Just a note about the planning: remember even if a job is stopped, its complete stop can happen after some time and not immediately. The snapshot of a pending VM needs anyway to be removed in the hypervisor before the job is actually declared stopped, so plan for some additional time to actually stop the backup job correctly.
