Synthetic full backup not running

Veeam Logoby tang » Sat Apr 01, 2017 3:31 am

Created weekday Mon-Thur for incremental backup and I checked synthetic full on Friday.
Initial full was backup successfully and incremental backup also successfully but Friday nothing happened.
Suppose Friday is synthetic full but nothing was backup.
1. Is it a bug?
2. How to i force synthetic full backup manually?

It should work fine, you can force a synthethic full manually by editing the job and putting the synthethic day on today, afterwards run the job again.

This should result in output like:
:: Synthetic full backup created successfully

If you confirm that synthetic full was not created on a scheduled date (check the job log as Niels suggested), please open support case and share the case ID. Thank you.
