RFE: Change retry mode in backup2tape

Veeam Logoby einhirn » Sat Jul 16, 2016 3:11 pm

I'm using a B2T job on a single primary job with "per-vm backup chains". Sometimes there's a "change in source files detected" message. The job then cancels the full- and incremental backup cyle and restarts everything, including building full backup map files for _every_ chain still to be backed up. My request is to change behavior to just skip the changed file and continue with unchanged backup files. The retry could just work on the changed files later on - but don't force unloading the tapes from the drives before...

Please consider this request for enhancement - it would make Backup2Tape jobs a bit more productive.
