Script Settings

To specify script settings for the backup job:

  1. At the Storage step of the wizard, click Advanced.
  2. Click the Scripts tab.
  3. If you want to execute custom scripts before and/or after the backup job, select the Run the following script before the job and Run the following script after the job check boxes and click Browse to choose executable file(s) from a local folder on the backup server. The scripts are executed on the backup server.

You can select to execute pre- and post-backup actions after a number of backup sessions or on specific week days.

  • If you select the Run scripts every <N> backup session option, specify the number of the backup job sessions after which the script(s) must be executed.
  • If you select the Run scripts on the selected days only option, click Days and specify week days on which the script(s) must be executed.

Script Settings Note:

Custom scripts that you define in the advanced job settings relate to the backup job itself, not the VM quiescence process. To add pre-freeze and post-thaw scripts for VM image quiescence, use the Guest Processing step of the wizard.
