Pre-Backup and Post-Backup Scripts? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to know how the pre and post backup scripts work in relation to the vss snapshot.

    For example I would like to stop a windows service before the vss snapshot is taken and start it as soon as the vss snapshot is finished. I cannot wait for the service to be stopped for the whole duration of the backup job (over 300GB of data backed up in the backup job). So does the post-backup script execute once the vss snapshot finishes or only when the whole backup job completes after copying all of the data to the DPM server? I am unable to find any documentation from MS on this.

    Thanks in advance.
