Cron backup


#1

To run multiple vm’s in a single backup everynight, is it easier to just run it through a script or to run the command listing out all the VM’s?

A script would give you more flexibility, but listing out all the VM’s in one line should also work:

vertical cron 0:30 vm1 vm2 vm3

#3

Is this still the right syntax to use as of v1.3.4? I am trying to set up a nightly backup cron job that backs up ALL vm’s on my host. Do I have to list out the name of each VM or is there a way to just specify “backup everything”? thanks

If you don’t specify the vm list, it will back up all vm’s by default.

Sorry I didn’t see your reply - ok, thank you for that!
