In the Veeam 9.5 documentation it states that (See https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95
)At 00:00 of the day set in the GFS job schedule the GFS job starts and checks periodically if the source job created a backup:
• If the source job creates a full backup, the GFS job copies it.
So, I setup a backup job to run on Saturday creating a synthetic full backup and scheduled the GFS job to start on Sunday. I expected the synthetic fulls to be copied to tape. Instead I got the following message
"No restore points found for date 8/07/2018 Synthesized full backup was not created because the most recent restore point is a full backup" and the GFS job showed Pending. To kick off the GFS job I had to manually create a restore point.
I am obviously doing something wrong here. Can someone explain what I'm doing wrong. All I am trying to achieve is a GFS backup of VMs to tape that runs once a week.
I've read all the Veeam doco that I can find on GFS backups but I don't see what is causing this problem.
