File to tape - Skipped Files

Post by nterreault »

Hello,

Quick question is File to tape stricly for vbk or vib files ?

I'm trying to copy some zip/rar files to tape along with other vbk files and the job is always skipping those files.

Thanks,

Nicholas

Hi, File To Tape can process any files from any server added to Managed Server (Windows or Linux). Thanks!

Ok got it finally. I had zipped file to backup from another server. I created a File To Tape and created a folder on the server from there. copied the file inside that folder. And finally the backup got the file and recognize them.

Thanks...

I’m wondering whether you got any warning or notification regarding files being skipped; anything that might point us to the root cause of the original issue. Also, did you choose these files as a source for file to tape job, or you chose the root folder, instead?

Anyway, glad to hear that you were able to bypass the said issue. Thanks.

I got a yellow sticky saying skipped files, but nothing more. In the log it was saying Remote Directory contains 0 items.

I choose the file as a source. Like i said once i moved files inside a created folder (From within Veeam software) i got the file taken to tape.

Not sure if its wanted like that or it a bug, but i came around it.

Thanks,

I encourage you to open a ticket with our support, so that, they can take a closer look at your infrastructure and see what could cause the said behavior.

If anything doesn’t work as expected, it’s typically recommended to work with support team; this way, we will be aware about potential issues and will be able to come up with potential workarounds/fixes as soon as possible.

Thanks.
