Starting next backup after completion

Afternoon all,

just moving to xsibackup-dc / pro from the original version 11.2.9 which has been bullet proof.

Got my head round the majority of changes and had worked out how to create the jobs etc, one thing i cant find is the ability to fire job 002 when the first has completed, the old version had an option to start on error etc

--on-success="backupId->002" \
--on-error="backupId->002" \

Any idea's, didnt want to try that in case it caused an issue

Re: Starting next backup after completion

That option existed in Classic version just because the main orchestrator program was a shell script and return codes were not very reliable. Some busybox components in some ©ESXi versions are buggy.

Now with DC/ Pro version, which is a monolithic C binary we have full control on the return codes and you can use tipical shell logic structures relying in the retun code of each job.
