How to run 2 profiles together? External drive then Cloud

Post by kingpenm3 »

In order to run my backup I need to stop the software server database. I am able to have my profile stop the server and then restart it automatically after the backup is finished. But I would also like to add nightly cloud backups (Amazon S3). Is there a way that I can get syncback to automatically start the cloud backup as soon as the external hard drive backup is done instead of having to schedule the cloud backup later and having that backup once again go through the process of stopping and starting the database? Thanks!

Hi,

You can create a group profile and add the 2 profiles (external drive backup and Amazon S3 backup) as members to the group, so that when the group is run (or scheduled to run) the profiles in the group will run in a sequence. In addition, if your server database supports starting/stopping it via a command line, then you can try embedding commands to do so under:

Modify Profile > Expert > Programs-Before section of the first member profile (to stop the server) and Programs-Before/After section of the second profile (to start the server) either directly or by calling a batch file or script file. Then, create a schedule task for the group from When > Edit schedule settings page, to run the group every night at the schedule date/time.

Thank you.
