Pre/post commands

Created: 03 Sep 2012 • Updated: 04 Sep 2012 | 1 comment


i actually have a backup exec 2012 server and i have a virtual environment on Hyperv on the same server which is running lotus on Win2008 os.

The latter has an agent installed.I would like to backup the virtual environement  and be able to restore it ,shall it fail.

I would use the hosting server to make the backup but i will need to have the server shut down.

For this i will need to use pre/post commands.

Any idea how i shall do this or a better idea how i shall proceed with this kind of backup.

Pls clarify which server are you intending to shut down prior to the backup & is the BE media server also the Hyper-V host ?
