Specifying Active Full Backup Schedule

You can schedule a backup job to create active full backups on a specific day of the month or on specific week days.

Specifying Active Full Backup Schedule Note:

Active full backup schedule depends on the regular backup schedule. To create active full backup automatically, in addition to configuring active full backup schedule, you must also set up the job to run upon schedule. To learn more, see Active Full Backup Schedule.

Specifying Monthly Active Full Backup Schedule

To instruct Veeam Agent for IBM AIX to perform active full backup on a specific day on the month, use the following command:

veeamconfig schedule activefull set --jobid <job_id> --thisday <day>

or

veeamconfig schedule activefull set --jobname <job_name> --thisday <day>

where:

  • <job_id> — ID of the backup job for which you want to configure the active full backup schedule. You should look up the job ID in advance, before configuring the schedule, for example, with the veeamconfig job list command. To learn more, see Viewing List of Backup Jobs.
  • <job_name> — name of the backup job for which you want to configure the active full backup schedule.
  • <day> — number of the day of the month when Veeam Agent for IBM AIX must perform active full backup.

 

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig schedule activefull set --jobname DailyBackup --thisday 1

 

Specifying Weekly Active Full Backup Schedule

To instruct Veeam Agent for IBM AIX to perform active full backup on specific week days, use the following command:

veeamconfig schedule activefull set --jobid <job_id> --weekdays <days>

or

veeamconfig schedule activefull set --jobname <job_name> --weekdays <days>

where:

  • <job_id> — ID of the backup job for which you want to configure the active full backup schedule. You should look up the job ID in advance, before configuring the schedule, for example, with the veeamconfig job list command. To learn more, see Viewing List of Backup Jobs.
  • <job_name> — name of the backup job for which you want to configure the active full backup schedule.
  • <days> — days when the backup job must create an active full backup separated by a comma (','). For example: Monday,Friday. The backup job will create an active full backup on the specified days at the time specified in the backup job schedule settings.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig schedule activefull set --jobname DailyBackup --weekdays Monday,Friday

 

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
