Subclient Properties (Pre/Post Process)

Use this dialog box to add, modify or view Pre/Post processes for the selected subclient.

Pre Backup Process

Displays the name/path of the process that you want to run before the pre-backup phase.

You can use this space to enter a process that will execute before this phase, or use the Browse button to search for and select the name/path of the process. The system allows the use of spaces in the name/path, provided they begin with an opening quotation mark and end with a closing quotation mark.

Post Backup Process

Displays the name/path of the process that you want to run after the post backup phase.

You can use this space to enter a process that will execute before this phase, or use the Browse button to search for and select the name/path of the process. The system allows the use of spaces in the name/path, provided they begin with an opening quotation mark and end with a closing quotation mark

Run Post Backup Process for all attempts

Specifies whether this process will execute for all attempts to run the phase.

When selected, this option will execute the specified process for all attempts to run the phase, including situations where the job phase is interrupted, suspended, or fails.

When cleared,  the specified process will only execute for successful, killed, or failed jobs.

Run As

Displays either the Local System Account or, for added security, another account as having permission to run these commands.

Even if the Local System Account is selected as the account to run the Pre/Post processes, the account that actually will be used is the SharePoint Administrator Account for the site in which the SharePoint Server resides. This account was configured during installation and can be changed in agent properties.

Change

Click to add or modify the account that has permission to run these commands.
