Backup different disks at different times


New Member

On a PVE 8 Cluster, I have a VM with 2 different disks (QCOW2) attached on 2 different iscsi buses.
The size of these disks is important (>1TB) so I'd like to know if there's a way (using the pve integrated tool) to backup them in 2 different jobs.
For example, at 1am I'd like to backup the first one, and in another job starting at 4am backup only the other one.
Is this possible?
