How to link/chain Veeam Backup & Replication jobs in version 6.5

Challenge

To meet a time window, you will need to have jobs kick-off one after the other in succession.

Cause

In version Veeam Backup & Replication version 6.5, backup and replication jobs can be linked/chained.

Solution

On the scheduling page of the job properties, you can select additional jobs to run immediately after the completion of the selected job. To do this, check the box to “Run the job automatically.” Select the “After this job” radio button, and then select the desired job in the drop-down box that you wish to run after the selected job.
