wbadmin start backup -templateId RRS feed

  • Question

  • The only way to change the day-by-day backup is by scheduled task but this is only valid for sever side.
    If I configure my client backup, it always start at the time scheduled every day and it seems that's impossible to set 1 month backup (es.). Looking on server task I found this parameter -templateId followed by a numer+letter code between {}. Searching on regedit and hard drive I wasn't able to found this template.. maybe is there the way to schedule the client-side backup.

    Does anyone know a way to do what I'm trying to do ?

  • Client computers are backed up to the server every night (assuming they're on and plugged in). There is no way to change this behavior other than by turning the client off.

    The wbadmin task you found is for the server backup, and is completely unrelated to the client backup.

  • I was thinking.. maybe is there something on client... Tonight I'll check.
    This is the second "wall" I have to face... whs 2011 is capable of great things but miss some details...

    Others have tried to do what you want, and failed. The backup engine (on the client) creates a scheduled task (again, on the client). That task is reset (or recreated, if missing) each night as part of the backup process, and there's no way to defeat that functionality.

    If you've edited the scheduled task, backup will not run until Dec.4th. When it does run, the task will be reset to running every day.
