"Zero"-Success on empty Job completion

Veeam Logoby Poweruser » Sat Aug 11, 2018 11:37 am

If you run a tape full job after a hyper-v full job you will get an successfull message if you abort the previous job.
the second job (the tape job) sends out an e-mail, it had success backing up 0 files with 0 data..
what a success ;-)

i think thats an error. okay the job itself may have been run correctly, but there was no actual data to backup a full job AND the previous job throwed an error.
in case of previous job had an error, the tape job MUST send a warning out at least, that previous job had an error.
better send an error instead just a warning.
if you want a full job, it should send a warning. on an incremental it depents, but errors in previous job should at least start a warning.

another thing: during backup it seems that veeam keeps the latest restore point until the new one has been completed. so you get a low disk warning because veeam preserves 2 backups instead of 1during the job.
maybe you should be able to select "keep 0" on disk instead of at least 1. because if you do a tape job, you dont want to waste space afterwards.

Hello Poweruser.

Let's say your primary job has failed - you receive the failed job email notification anyway (it's more important to fix as you don't have a primary backup on your repository). Secondary job generate failed report only in case it cannot process the data created by primary jobs. Thanks.

okay it can process zero data from job one.
so you get an email with success 0 bytes.
thats confusing
who wants 0 bytes on tape?
