Not only backing up latest chain?

Veeam Logoby pkelly_sts » Tue Mar 22, 2016 11:44 am

Still testing tape and had an issue which mean't I had to postpone my parallel (with BExec) tape job for a few days so catching up today and expected the job to be writing Fridays .VBK file and 3 .VIB files since that one.

However, for some reason it has also picked up the previous weekly full, but not the .VIB files after it, and added them to the tape job.

What am I not understanding?

Code: Select all

Paul,

I might be wrong it looks like a bug we fixed in Update 1. Can you request it from support team (and please share the logs just in case)? Thanks.

Then, it's worth waiting till Update 1 for version 9 is released (it's just around the corner) and updating your product installation accordingly. Version 8 had some problems regarding archiving extra full backups. Thanks.

Noted. It's on my radar to upgrade real soon now, hopefully soon after I return from holidays.
