Veeam Monitor reports scheduled task fails

Post by rhwebster »

Has any one seen this error before, and if so what the cause and solution is?
I'm testing Veeam Monitor 4 and was trying the scheduled tasks. Set it to run at 14:00 and this what gets recorded in the log

I'd be very grateful for any help.

From the log file : -

06/22/09 14:00:05 Inform 0x1AE8 _pipe "Connecting to DB VeeamMonitor at VCENTRETEST. Local host is vcentretest."
06/22/09 14:00:05 Inform 0x1AE8 _pipe "Connecting to DB VeeamMonitor at VCENTRETEST. Local host is vcentretest."
06/22/09 14:00:05 Error 0x1AE8 _pipe "Unable to determine amout of data in the pipe. Code - 109"
06/22/09 14:00:05 Inform 0x20D8 scheduler "Setting timer to the nearest scheduled task"
06/22/09 14:00:05 Inform 0x1AE8 _pipe "Pipe: Connection closed"
06/22/09 14:00:05 Inform 0x1AE8 _pipe "Pipe client terminated"
06/22/09 14:00:05 Inform 0x20D8 scheduler "Task #0 has been scheduled to run on 06/23/09 00:00:00"

Ritchie, this is not correct log file. Scheduled report generation logs can be found on Veeam Monitor server computer, in the UI logs.

Hi Gostev

Path to logfile = C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Veeam\Veeam Monitor for VMware

Log File = VeeamDCS.log ( the only log file in this location)

I opened the log file with Veeam monitor Server Settings, go the Logs tab, selected the "open logs folder" button, then opened the log file.

If another log is being generated can you please be specific about it's location and name.

many thanks

RW

Hi Ritchie
you can find UI log files here - C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Local Settings\Application Data\Veeam\Veeam Monitor for VMware\monitor.gui.log
or from UI - Help->About->View Log

Thank you Alexander, most helpful. I dont think that is in the manual! However, the last entry in the monitor.gui.log occurs 40 minutes before i ran the task, and, in the veeamdcs.log file i see this:-

6/22/09 14:00:00 Inform 0x20D8 scheduler "Running scheduled task #1"

06/22/09 14:00:02 Inform 0x1AE8 _pipe "Starting pipe client..."

06/22/09 14:00:05 Error 0x1AE8 _pipe "Unable to determine amout of data in the pipe. Code - 109"
06/22/09 14:00:05 Inform 0x20D8 scheduler "Setting timer to the nearest scheduled task"

This issue is now resolved.

Many thanks to Gostev and Alexander.

The pipe in the log file was refering to named pipes.

regards
