Struggling with tape backup Incremental and Full

Post by sweepsd »

I have 3 forever forward backup jobs that run Mon - Fri they start at different times 18:00 18:30 and 22:00
I have 3 tape jobs that run Tues to Sat starting @ 00:01 00:20 and 02:00 Scheduled for a full on SAT with the incremental option set. I was hoping that when the incremental backup is done on Monday the tape job on Tues will backup Monday's incremental. This appears to work but the problem I have is when Fridays runs, it seems to run the full on Fridays morning tape backup instead of running on SAT morning after Friday nights incremental.
Help!

Hello sweepsd,

To clarify: full backup is created on Friday at 00:01, 00:20 and 02:00 for all theses jobs? Have you heard any update from support team? Cheers!

Hi
Full on a Sat. I have heard, suggested I do not have enough restore points to cover a week. I have increased to see if it makes a difference.

If you do not have a restore point per Saturday, synthetic full backup must be created from the most recent restore point. However, in such case, synthetic job should be performed on Saturday anyway. Schedule for tape jobs is set to daily, right? Are you running the latest Veeam B&R version? Thank you!

Thanks for the details! I've asked QA folks to review the case.
