Override Parameter on schedule

Hi there.

 

I have the following scenario. We have a configuration where we use the VIBE plugin for backup up VMs that are on a NFS datastore on the Netapp. The current config uses the daily policy and makes VMware snapshots (VIBE_VMWARE_SNAPSHOT=Y Parameter).

 

Now we need to also use the hourly policy but here we do not want to take VMware snapshots.

 

When I do a manual backup (Action - Backup) I can select Add/Override Parameters and use VIBE_VMWARE_SNAPSHOT=N to not take a VMware snapshot and only a Netapp Snapshot.

 

When I create a scheduled run I do not have this possibility. 

 

How can I achieve this without creating two configurations?

 

Regards,

Marc

Re: Override Parameter on schedule

Hi Marc,

 

With 4.1 version of Snap Creator, Policy Management feature is introduced. Using this feature, a "policy schedule" (action and frequency) can be defined. And using a policy manager, associate policy params and Override params to this schedule. Attached a screen shot.

 

In your case, with out creating two configs, by creating two policy manager entries, you can solve your problem.

 

Regards,

Amar
