I need your help.
Here’s the scenario.
The Customer needs to mount a disk to a client before Scan phase, then backup needs to be performed and after job’s completed disk needs to be unmounted.
They decide to set Pre Scan and Post Backup Scripts with the following configuration:
With Full backups everything works fine. However, if Inremental backup runs and there was no changes since last backup, Backup phase will not run. As a result PostBackup process will not run and disk is still kept as mounted to the client.
I suggested to client to change settings as follows:
So, we’ve got 2 sets of script:
- PreScan process - to mount a drive / disk
- PostScan process - to unmount a drive / disk
- PreBackup process - to mount a drive / disk again
- PostBackup process - to unmount a drive / disk
However, the Customer is not very happy with the solution I provided.
Do you know any different way to mount a disk to the client and unmount it after job’s completed, even if backup job ends on Scan phase?
