Backing up using BEMCLI, what about BE scheduler

Created: 16 May 2013 • Updated: 16 May 2013 | 3 comments

I am looking to start using bemcli with powershell scripts to backup my environment, (http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/use-bemcl...) I am wondering what to do about the BE scheduler? I tried placing the jobs on hold but once the job was run using bemcli the job was no longer on hold. Thoughts or suggestions?

Which cmdlet did you use to start your jobs, Start-BEJob or Resume-BEJob?  The former does not release the job from hold, whereas the latter does.

I have been using Start-BEJob which runs the job as a run now. Once the job completes the job is no longer  on hold. I have since added Get-BEJob "Job Name" | Suspend-BEJob after each Start-BEJob in my script. It seems to be working. I didn't know if there is a better way to do this. I really don't want the be scheduler to start running job if that is possible.

I think your method is the best way for now.  I did not notice this because all my jobs are one-time jobs and on hold.
