Vembu StoreGrid: Online backup software for Service Providers, SMBs & ROBOs

Feature Request

Postby suredata » Sat Mar 24, 2012 6:58 am

Hi there,

We're constantly setting the clients to 'Backup each time the computer starts' with new clients that choose not to seed. This is to help speed up the process. What we would like is an option that says 'backup each time the computer starts until the full backup is complete, then resume normal schedule'

Would this be possible?

Hi Suredata,

There is an option under Advanced Options at backup level in the client web console:

Code: Select all
   Run this backup each time StoreGrid restarts.


It is by default disabled. You can enable it for that backup. Once the full backup is completed, you can turn it off. You can do this from the backup server itself through StoreGrid's CCM feature.

Yes I understand we can do it manually. What I was hoping for was an option to have it automatically switch off after the full was completed. Otherwise it means more overhead watching for the full backups to complete and remembering to change each of them as that happens. A simple trigger to turn it off when fullbackupcount=1 would be great!
