Sometimes I wont get any email status and I will look at the jobs and they are frozen at a certain percentage. No errors just frozen. Only way I have found to stop them was a reboot.
Has anyone experience anything like this and what could be a good fix? At this point I am thinking of uninstalling and reinstalling but dont feel like recreating all the jobs.
Also what is the best practice for having multiple jobs? Can they run together? I have the time spaced out so I am hoping that the job is finished before the next but that doesn't always happen especially when it does its full.
Any help would be kindly appreciated.
I've seen the console go "catatonic" when the machine was overloaded. Too many jobs running concurrently. I've even seen problems with the proxy had too much ram. (strange as that may sound). Tell us about your Veeam B&R server/proxy. Is it physical or virtual? How many CPUs? How much RAM?
Be sure you're running the latest patch. (go to cp.veeam.com and type "patch 3" in the search box)
You can run jobs together. Rule of thumb is one job per 2 CPUs. For instance, if you have a 4 CPU machine, you're good to run 2 jobs concurrently. Of course, if your proxy is running on a physical machine you can get away with pushing that limit.
One thing to double check. If your proxy is a VM and it's using hot-add, you're likely to have stuck hot-adds from your reboots while jobs were running. You'll need to go in to the settings on the proxy VM(s) and remove any hard disks that belong to other VMs. This could/will cause snapshot troubles on future jobs.
