In this post I will show you how easy it is to run Backup Exec Job when Veeam Backup is ready with his job.
First you have to configure your backup job. The only thing different to the “normal” configuration is the Schedule tab. Set the job to Run now. Submit the job and cancel the job.
You will see the job under the Job Setup.
Now we’re going to test the job. Open a command prompt and run the following command:
“C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\bemcmd.exe” -o01 -jJobName_Backup
If everything went ok, the Backup job should be running now.
More information about bemcmd.exe can be found here: http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com and in one of my earlier posts: backup-exec-start-a-backup-job-from-the-commandline
Now there is only one thing we need to configure in Veeam Backup. Open the Veeam Backup Job. Go to the Backup Destination window and click on Advanced.
Enable the Run the following command check box and enter the bemcmd.exe commando which we used earlier in the command prompt. After that, enable the Run every 1 backup cycle checkbox too.
Now you’re ready to go! When the Veeam Backup job is ready, it will start the Backup job of Symante Backup Exec and writes the Veeam Backup file to the tape drive.
