Problem with Weekly and Monthly MediaPool - No Backup

Post by WinstonWolf » Jan 30, 2016 7:02 am

Hello ,

Another Problem .

I have two Media Pools , one Weekly and one Monthly .
I have two Backup to Tape Jobs , One Weekly and one Monthly .

Yesterday , on Friday my Weekly Backup to Tape Job Backups the VM Backup Data to Tape in his Weekly Media Pool .
Today Morning should the Monthly Backup To Tape Job also Backup the last Full vbk File in his Monthly Media Pool .

BUT :

The Monthly Backup says : No restore point for 30.01.2016 is available for virtual full backup, using previous restore point for 29.01.2016
30.01.2016 02:15:26 :: Source backup files detected. VBK: 0, VBK map: 0, VIB: 0

Question , it is an other Media Pool and a new Media Set , why he dont find any Files to Backup ?

One thing , i have activated the Option "Process latest Full Backup Chain Only" . Can this be the Reason why the Job dont Backup any Files ?

EDIT :

What i forget to say is that in the Monthly Mediapool there was no Mediaset before . It was the first Time that a Mediaset is created in this Pool .
Can it be that my enabled "Process latest Full Backup Chain Only" Option cant see any Files in this Pool and therefore he cant Backup anything ?
I uncheck the Box for "Process latest Full Backup Chain Only" and then the Backup creates an virtual Full Backup to Tape .

This log entry represents that there is no new source restore points to backup to tape. Can you confirm that you have restore points on disk storage that were not previously taken to tape? Thanks.

Thanks. Please open a support case as this behavior does not look like expected: jobs pointed to separate media pools should not interfere with each other. Do not forget to share the case ID in this thread please.
