Stuck: Creating Synthesized VBK with state as of X

Veeam Logoby egroeg » Fri Feb 06, 2015 12:03 pm

Hi,

I have 12 disk jobs wrapped into 1 single tape job.

The first job runs fine, but when it comes to run the second, it shows "Creating Synthesized VBK with state as of X" in the actions list and simply gets stuck there.

None of the jobs complete or fail, just sits there for several hours / days until you cancel.

Running v8.0.0.817

We've installed the patch and currently writing the job just fine - when it gets to it's second run, I'll update the forum as to the outcome.

Did you update your installation to patch#1? If so, what is your support ticket number? Thanks.

Be aware, if you are backing up 12 Veeam to Disk jobs into one tape job, you will have to restore the ENTIRE Veeam tape job to get at ANY files or VMs. Unless you have enough free space, that could cause a major issue when the need to restore occurs. We create a one to one mapping for each disk and tape job. 12 disk jobs mirror to 12 tape jobs. We chain the jobs to start after each other to minimize the overall job time.

We're at stage of collecting users' request regarding potential improvements in tape functionality. So, feel free to leave your voice in this thread either for granular file or for VM restore from tape. Thanks.

I have the same error "Creating Synthesized VBK with state as of X" on a single Job backup to tape, I've installed patch 2b, the latest.

Any update about this?
