In professional backup environments, it is not unusual that certain programs, system services or batch scripts have to run or be stopped before or after a backup. That’s why we built an action list with predefined actions into Z-DBackup.
Z-DBackup can also execute actions on remote computers in the local network if they have Z-Cron installed. This enables the creation of complex network backups.
Actions can be executed at the following points in time during a backup:
- Before the start
- Before data copy
- Before each full backup
- After the end
- After data copy
- After each full backup
- Failure at start (will only be executed if the backup couldn’t run due to a failure in the startup process)
Actions Before or After Backups
In the following table, you can find an overview of the different types of actions Z-DBackup supports.
