Backup to Disk Job cancel Tapebackup Job after 20 Hours run

Hello ,

We have an big Problem .
We have an very large Backup To Tape Job ( 8TB ) which starts at 03.00 AM allways at the last Monday of the Month . This Job Needs 30 Hours to finish.
But on Evening at 07.00 PM starts the Backup to Disk Job which Access ( Merging ) on the same Files which was then actually backed up by the Tape Job.
Then the Backup to Disk Job stops the Backup to Tape Job after 20 Hours of running - Thats very bad .
We cant run this Backup to Tape Job on the Weekend because another big Job runs on the Weekend which Needs the Tape Drive.

Is it possible to Change the priority between Tape and Backup to Disk Jobs ? Is it possible to let the Backup to Disk Job wait till the Tape Job is finished ?

Thanks
Michael

we also have multiple big file servers, 10-12TB each and experiencing the same issue.

Found the following PS script and thinking to implement it: Jobs -> Backup -> RMC on backup Job -> Edit -> Storage -> Advance button -> Script tab:

Code: Select all
$TapeJob = Get-VBRTapeJob -name "Backup to Tape Job Name"
do{
Start-sleep -s 60
$State = $TapeJob.LastState
}while ($State -ne "Stopped")


Could someone confirm if it would help?

Also, Veeam -please provide a fix ASAP!

It should help, indeed. Though, it's worth testing prior to sticking to it.

This functionality is planned for the next product release.

Thanks.
