Starting and Stopping Jobs

You can start a job manually if, for example, you want to create an additional restore point for a VM backup or replica without changing the job schedule. You can also stop a job if, for example, VM processing is about to take a long time, and you do not want the job to produce workload on the production environment during business hours.

Starting Jobs

To start a job:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Jobs.
  3. In the working area, select the backup job and click Start on the ribbon or right-click the job and select Start.

Stopping Jobs

You can stop a job in one of the following ways:

  • Stop the job immediately. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will produce a new restore point only for those VMs that have already been processed when you stop the job.
  • Stop the job after the current VM. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will produce a new restore point only for those VMs that have already been processed and for VMs that are being processed at the moment.

To stop a job:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Jobs.
  3. In the working area, select the backup job and click Stop on the ribbon or right-click the job and select Stop. In the displayed window, click Immediately.

To stop the job after the current VM:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, click Jobs.
  3. In the working area, right-click the job and select Stop. In the displayed window, click Gracefully.
