Daily Copy To Tape of incr. forever jobs find no new RPs

Veeam Logoby mecki » Fri May 20, 2016 7:22 am

Hello,

I got a customer who is using several endpoint backup job and one hyperV job in Veeam B&R 9update1 running to two repositories on a workday schedule at 18:00. Every job has been finished around 22:00.
There is a "normal" (no GFS) tape copy copy running at 8:30 (a.m.) each day with the two repositories as source object. That job is configured with synthetic full on tape (only) each workday too and scheduled to run on these days.

I expect now that the tape job will build a full copy on tape with the restore points saved the day before, but sometimes the job found no new restore points on the day it was running for some source jobs (not all), and doesn't took the restore point(s) (not copied before) as reference for the full to tape. On the next scheduled run (next day almost) of that tape copy job theses source jobs that not has been copied to tape will now be copied to tape, but the jobs copied before will not copied then...

All source jobs has been ended on the day before!

Any similar behavior or unreliable behavior of the copy to tape job from incremental forever restore points seen? My customer needs a full copy on tape each day, but fulls on disk each day are no option...and all backups of the day before have to be copied.

Thanking in advance. Support ticket opened #01802118 in early phase...

example in the logs of not finding restore points (but there are new restore points of the day before)
[18.05.2016 08:30:11] <01> Info [CTapeDailySynthesizedBackupCalendarSpecifics] Virtual full backup dates between 18.05.2016 00:00:00 and 18.05.2016 08:30:11: 18.05.2016 00:00:00
[18.05.2016 08:30:11] <01> Info [CTapeSynStorageReplacer] Synthesized full backup was not created for 18.05.2016: there are no new restore points between 18.05.2016 and 18.05.2016

it is only looking for RP from 0:00 up to the scheduled run and not before.
I'll test now scheduling the tape copy job on the same day as the source jobs...

Regards,

Martin

I tested now starting the copy to tape Job during running source endpoint Jobs, but it helped only the first time after configuring that Job. The next time there are still copies missing. The source jobs run.
I think the Task to recocnize new restore points isn't stable.

Hello mecki,
