Pause a backup from client side using urbackupclientctl


Dear Colleagues,

how does one pause a backup from client side using the command line tool urbackupclientctl ?

many thanks for advice,


Right now I’ve created two .bat files for users to run as administrator.
net stop “UrBackupClientBackend”
net start “UrBackupClientBackend”

Would prefer to have an item in the Urbackup menu:
Pause until restart
Pause 1hr
Pause 12hrs
Pause 24hrs

and a resume option if it’s in “paused” mode.

Haven’t tested, but does backup obey/not backup on “metered connections”?
