Partial backup detected when running tape job

Veeam Logoby joshwinters » Thu Jan 21, 2016 7:28 pm

Hi all! Thanks for any help/suggestions you can give to me.

I am running a reverse-incremental job that is configured to use secondary destination to tape. When the secondary tape job runs, it throws a warning that "1/21/2016 7:23:55 AM :: Partial backup detected for restore point created on 1/21/2016 7:01:08 AM"

Can someone please provide direction on why this error is being thrown and how I could remediate?

Thanks!

Is the source backup job pointed to repository that uses "Per-VM backup chain" option? If so, how many VMs are present inside the source backup job? And how many have been copied to tapes during this cycle? Is it ordinary backup to tape job or the one pointed to GFS media pool? Thanks.

Yes, the source job is pointed to a scale-out repository that uses "Per-VM backup files". There are 16 VMs present inside the source backup job and 16 VMs have been copied to tapes. It's a tape job that is pointed to a GFS media pool.

Thanks for your help!
