Vail : Schedule multiple System Backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

     

    I would like to schedule (every day) two System Backups :

    - One for the System and Shared folders

    - One for the "Client computer backups" folder

     

    I have two external drives for System backup, but I can't figure how can I schedule two separate System backups.

    Thanks for your help. ;)

  • You can't do this through the server backup interface Microsoft has built for the Dashboard. It's functionality that's only available from the server desktop, using the tools built into Windows Server 2008 R2. See e.g. this Technet article for more information, and bear in mind that anything done via the server desktop is technically unsupported.

  • Thank you Ken, that fits exactly my needs.

    I will schedule regular (Dashboard) server backup for System and Shared folders, then use the server backup (through admin tools) to backup client computers' backups.

     

    Thanks once more. :)
