Post-Job Force Full weekly script

Problem

Regular chaining of Backup Plans does not allow to schedule a Full of the chained Backup Plan and this is an important option for Image Based Backup Plans. However using a Powershell script to chain plans can help you achieve the desired setup.

Resolution

Below is an example of the post job script doing exactly that:

powershell -command "if ((get-date).DayOfWeek -eq 'Friday'){Start-MBSBackupPlan -Name '123test' -ForceFull}else {Start-MBSBackupPlan -Name '123test'}"`

You can replace "Friday" with another day of the week and replace 123test with name of chained backup plan.
