    Hi there

    Firstly have you been through support for this problem? 

    Also, is there a reason you aren't using incremental backups?

    Thanks

    Hello

    Yes, I have been past support [#123867].

    I think that I might haven't  been precise engouht here. It's not the new 3.x backup function but the disk backup function and scheduling I'm on about.

    Hi Jens

    We have a development job in our backlog to allow you to set the timing for backups so I will see if I can bump the priority up on that. It's not the first time it's been raised to us but we haven't had time to do it recently.

    I couldn't see that the DB corruption had been dealt with in that ticket so please go through support if that's something you wish to raise. 

    Regards

    The DB corruption isn't a current issue per se. But if customers are expecting the disk backup of a running MSSQL server to be consistent, then we will have an issue... So therefore we would really like the scheduling of disk backups to be completely disabled. At the same time, we know that we aren't the only ones using OnApp, so therefore, it should be an option to do so.

     

    I guess that it would be handy to, in some situations, to update an image, shut it down, make a backup and turn it into a template, ready for loadbalancer deployment. But I can't see that that hole chain can be made without using the API at some point, which at that point, would still make it pointless to have those scheduled disk backups.

    We're trying to work out what the problem is here. Is it that you have multiple disks on your VM, one has mySQL db on that that is unrecoverable after a backup/snapshot?

    If that's the case, we do have some more development tasks on the roadmap to exclude files, disks etc and these will be picked up in due course. 

    If I have missed the point then please correct me.

    Regards

    Being able to change the scheduling of backup tasks without having to manually edit the SQL database would be useful.  As the OP outlined,  backups are usually configured by people during business hours but we only want backups to run outside of business hours.  An option in the UI to change the start_after time of the related transactions would be very convenient.

     

     

    Thanks
