We have scheduled all the jobs in this way:
- Backup Jobs - is a forever forward incremental backup every day
- Backup Jobs to tape - is a synthtic full backup every day from Monday till Friday, virtuall backup is from Monday till Friday, types: Endpoints Backups and VMware Backups
- Backup Copy Jobs to the cloud runs regulary
All jobs run automatically. The backup jobs are finished before the backup to tape job beginns.
The problem is, the backup files will be created every day, but every Tuesday and Thursday they don't run to the tape. The report of the tape job says:
- Code: Select all

We have already installed the Update 2 for Veeam Backup & Replication 9.0.
The support team advised us to schedule the jobs in the way, that all the backup jobs are finished before the tape job begins, which we also did: at 23:45 p.m. begins the backup job to tape. Anyway it doesn't run on Tuesdays and on Thursdays.
We cannot explain it.
