Dear all,

I was setting up a backup for SnapManagerExchange through SnapCreator. In the backup-config I give a name for the Snapshots but finally the name of a prevoius snapshot is used instead.

I want this names to be like I defined them in SnapCreator as I want to create schedules for HOURLY and DAILY SnapShots, so I can have several schedules and still can identify the Snaps by name.

What step am I missing?

Any help is much appreciated.

screenshots are attached.

WR,

Moray

Hello Siva,

Powershell config path is pointing from SnapCreator server to the exchange server:

"C:\Program Files\IBM\SnapManager for Exchange\smeshell.psc1"

Backup options:

-Server 'VET001' -GenericNaming -ManagementGroup 'Standard' -NoTruncateLogs $False -StorageGroup 'MAILBOXDB' -RetainBackups 4

Thanks for helping

Moray
