Backup Job tries to backup vm which is already deleted

Veeam Logoby agrob » Tue Mar 15, 2016 7:03 am

Good Day
Veeam B&R Version 9. Affected backup job is a hyperv backup.
i deleted a vm on the hyper v host. backup job seletction is configured on host level, so it should backup all vms present on that host. The problem is now that it seems that veeam does not recognize that the vm is not present anymore. job does always try to backup this deleted vm which result in an error.
i checked all the settings in the backup job and removed all entries for this deleted vm i have found in the gui (guest processing, vm exclusion) but with no luck. i dont want to recreate the job.

i suggest that there is mabye a configuration entry left in the config db. where do i find the job settings in the sql database? or is there any other way to get rid of this problem?
thanks in advance

Andre, have you tried to rescan the host prior running the job? If that doesn't help, please contact technical support for assistance in cleaning the DB. Thanks.

hi foggy
i just did recalculate in the backup Job but it never came in mind to do a rescan on the hyper v host. thanks for this hint.

Rescan did not help. Have opened a case now. ID 01731390

Problem solved. First we did try to remove the old entry from the sql config db but it did not work. final solution was to delete the backup job, create it new and link it to the repository again. thanks to the veeam support!
