Warning on GFS Tape

Post by andre.simard » May 10, 2017 7:59 pm

Hi,

I have a GFS job tape that complete with a wrning since couple of week and i don't understand why.

Warning message is: Synthesized full backup was not created for 2017-04-22: there are no new restore points between 2017-04-16 and 2017-04-22

Code: Select all

2017-05-06 12:00:27 AM :: Building source backup files list started at 2017-05-06 12:00:27 AM  
2017-05-06 12:00:28 AM :: No restore points found for date 2017-05-06. Synthesized full backup was not created because the most recent restore point is a full backup.  
2017-05-06 12:00:30 AM :: Synthesized full backup was not created for 2017-04-22: there are no new restore points between 2017-04-16 and 2017-04-22  
2017-05-06 12:00:30 AM :: Source job retry is required. Waiting...  
2017-05-06 12:00:30 AM :: Source backup files detected. VBK: 0, VBK map: 0, VIB: 0  
2017-05-06 6:38:53 PM :: 35 synthetic full backups will be placed into the weekly media set  
2017-05-06 6:38:54 PM :: Source backup files detected. VBK: 0, VBK map: 35, VIB: 0  
2017-05-06 6:38:57 PM :: Queued for processing at 2017-05-06 6:38:57 PM  
2017-05-06 6:38:57 PM :: Required backup infrastructure resources have been assigned  
Also, another thing is that there is a retry job that running for around 18h before starting to copy to tape. This retry is also there every weeks.

Do you know why those 2 message are there?

FYI duplicate job from the 2017-04-22 complete sucessfully, but there is a task that it's still running for 426:22:06 hours:

2017-04-22 9:36:44 PM :: Continuing task for UCPR-LORSR100.vm-2754D2017-04-22T180101.vbk

Thank you

Re: Warning on GFS Tape

Hi Andre,

GFS tape job is a continues job. Frankly speaking, it sits in idle state all the time (otherwise its writing backup files). Warning shows that some source backup jobs does not have a new restore point for the selected set (source job could be disabled or stopped), so GFS restore point was not created.
