Is it possible with any of the products to launch pre or post backup script? If not, is there a plan to implement it?

As of now, Pre/Post backup script feature is not available in our products. Its already in our roadmap. Based on the current progress, we expect it will be available in our product in third quarter of this year.

Hi, Not to hijack the thread but I see that writing to event logs is not in the above list!? I was told not too long ago that it was meant to be included in the next major release, what is the expected ETA on this? Regards Michael Wilken

Hi Michael, Our product team is currently working on the release of 3.8 Version. Once its done, this Pre/Post backup command and writing the error to event logs feature will be available in the next immediate update which can be installed on top of 3.8 installation. Also, based on the current progress, we expect it to be available with our product at the end of third quarter this year.
