I have a parent folder that I am sending to tape with a file to tape backup job. The tape job runs every Sunday at 1600. The files are created by a scheduled task running a batch file that copies files from a laptop (no comments about End Point, its an XP box
) onto a server share. The batch file runs every Tues and Thurs. Every Saturday at 10 am there is another file that runs and deletes any folders older than 2 weeks. All of this description is to show that there is no processes accessing the files at the time of the tape job. Now every Sunday during the tape job there is a failure on some file(s) in some folder. Its always different but it always fails:
- Code: Select all
failed: Transaction (Process ID 97) was deadlocked on lock resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction.
If I rerun the transaction it will fail with the same error on a different file or multiple files. I am at a loss for what could be causing this. I have checked before the tape job and nothing has a lock on the files, I have also rebooted the Veeam server as well as the server that has the files on them but no change as of this past Sunday. My ticket is #01104171
Any help would be appreciated!
