    Windows Server create multiple schedules


    Windows Server create multiple schedules

    Create multiple schedules with Task Scheduler

    To create multiple scheduled backups, you can use Task Scheduler to run Wbadmin command. With Task Scheduler, you can create weekly scheduled backups or less frequent schedules rather than daily backups.
    Step 1. Click Start and type task scheduler in the search box. Select Task Scheduler in the listed results.
    Step 2. Under the Action tab, select Create Task.




    Step 3. In General, you can name the task and write a description if needed. Then check the option Run whether user is logged on or not.


    Step 4. Then go to the Triggers tab and click New to choose when you want the backup to run. You can set one time, daily, weekly, and monthly tasks.


    Step 5. Go to the Actions tab, and click New to begin as well. Type wbadmin in the Program/script box, and write a backup command in Add argument (optional) box. If you are not familiar with wbadmin in Windows Server 2012/2008, here is an example to back up the entire C to the H: drive:


    :
    start backup -backupTarget:H: -include:C: -allCritical -quiet


    Descriptions:

    • start backup: tell wbadmin.exe to start a backup.
    • -backupTarget: the target volume to store the backups.
    • -include: the volume(s) to backup. To backup more than one volume, separate them with a comma.
    • -allCritical: tells the backup program also includes any other data that are required for a full server recovery.
    • -quiet: to perform unattended backup tasks.

    Step 6. Click OK to finish creating this scheduled task. Or you can also go to Conditions tab and Settings tab to have a check.
    If you are neither comfortable with WBadmin command nor with Task Scheduler or you may want a more flexible way to make a backup, then you can switch to third-party server backup program that can have multiple scheduled backups with easy operations. Just keep reading to get it.

    Ive been working on a project for a school that had limited budget this year for their infrastructure and was not able to upgrade their Microsoft DPM 2007 backup software to the latest version and since DPM 2007 does not support backing up the Exchange Server 2010 information stores, the only alternative solution for them was to use the build in Windows Server Backup application that is natively built into Windows Server 2008 R2. The challenge of using Windows Server Backup was that you could only schedule one backup job from within the GUI and because I had to stagger the backup jobs to have them save the backups to different folders, what I needed to do was manually create backup jobs within Task Scheduler.
    The first task was to figure out what the proper syntax was and since backup jobs in Windows Server Backup was essentially a task scheduled with the %windir%\System32\wbadmin.exe command, I simply looked up the switches available for the wbadmin.exe command. Details and explanation for this

    command can be found here:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...15(WS.10).aspx
    and all the switches to start a backup job can be found here:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...83(WS.10).aspx.
    As shown in the Parameters in the link above, the switches were interested are as follows:

    Parameter Description
    -backupTarget
    Specifies the storage location for this backup. Requires a hard disk drive letter (f:), a volume GUID-based path in the format of \\?\Volume{GUID}, or a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path to a remote shared folder (\\<servername>\<sharename>\). By default, the backup will be saved at: \\<servername>\<sharename>\WindowsImageBackup\<ComputerBackedUp>\.
    -include For WindowsVista and Windows Server 2008, specifies the comma-delimited list of volume drive letters, volume mount points, or GUID-based volume names to include in the backup. This parameter should be used only when the -backupTarget parameter is used.
    For Windows7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, specifies the comma-delimited list of items to include in the backup. You can include multiple files, folders, or volumes. Volume paths can be specified using volume drive letters, volume mount points, or GUID-based volume names. If you use a GUID-based volume name, it should be terminated with a backslash (\). You can use the wildcard character (*) in the file name when specifying a path to a file. Should be used only when the -backupTarget parameter is used.
    -vssFull Performs a full back up using the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS). All files are backed up, each file's history is updated to reflect that it was backed up, and the logs of previous backups may be truncated. If this parameter is not used wbadmin start backup makes a copy backup, but the history of files being backed up is not updated.
    -quiet Runs the subcommand with no prompts to the user.

    The schedule I worked out was to backup the information store
    in different folders on \\backupServer\f$ for different days as shown in the following:

    Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
    Backup_Mon_Thurs Backup_Tues_Fri Backup_Wed_Sat Backup_Mon_Thurs Backup_Tues_Fri Backup_Wed_Sat
    Note that this is just an example and the folders are set up as such because of the limited drive space I had.

    Once youve determined the amount of scheduled backups you need, you can proceed with setting up
    x amount of scheduled tasks in the Task Scheduler with the action setup as such:
    :
     start backup -backuptarget:\\backupServer\f$\Backup_Mon_Thurs -include:e:,f: -vssFull -quiet
     start backup -backuptarget:\\backupServer\f$\Backup_Tues_Fri -include:e:,f: -vssFull -quiet
     start backup -backuptarget:\\backupServer\f$\Backup_Wed_Sat -include:e:,f: -vssFull quiet









    In my example, the e: and f: drives are my database and log drives and therefore was included into the parameters. The -vssFull switch is important for Exchange 2010 backups so that the job can flush the logs so make sure you include it into the parameters.
