Allow assignment of Backup Resources before starting Backup Job
For very large clusters, ideally backup resources should be assignable before the backup begins. For each shard and config server, assignment of the following would assist in scaling Ops Manager backups.
- Snapshot Store
- Oplog Store
- Backup Daemon (if using FCV <= 4.0)
Starting the backup could trigger an email to the Backup Administrator who could then assign these resources on the Admin page.
Including those options in the wizard would be really helpful.
This is a very needed feature. Sometimes it can take a long time before OM tell you it can't proceed with the backup.
