Everything about backing up to tape

Feature request: Tape job warnings should be warnings/errors

Veeam Logoby Anders » Fri Sep 09, 2016 10:24 am

Aparently, its a feature, that when your tape job fails to do what its suposed to do - copy backup files to a tape, it completes with Success. I'd like to see a new feature where you can disable Veeam telling a lie about the job status. A failed job you can not restore from should NEVER be shown as Success.
I suggest it is implemented as a checkmark in the options with the text "Let veeam lie about failing jobs, by marking them as success: Yes/no"

Puzzled? The following is a screenshot of a tape job that went bad. Veeam shows a warning inside the job log, but the job itself dont go into a warning state - so no email notifications are sent.

How many people have data on tapes they can not rely on, because of this?

This forum post is made, because Veeam support suggested to post a feature request about it here. Support case# 01896940

Yes, I'm frustrated. :x

Hi Anders,
That`s a bug which is going to be fixed in the next releases. Nobody wants misleading information so it`s better just to fix the behaviour to warn users if some backup didn`t get into the tape.
Thanks for the heads up!

It is still ongoing issue with version 9.5. Very frustrating.
