Backup Copy: Initial copy did not complete

Post by infused » Feb 20, 2017 8:21 pm

I randomly seem to be getting this on some jobs:

Code: Select all

Initial copy did not complete, and will resume on the next copy interval
I'm assuming a copy is not made for this period and will complete next time. What I'm not sure about is why this happens (no other jobs running). The backup job is at 12am, copy job at 4am, but it's set as continuous.

Any ideas?

Hi,
What is your backup copy interval and start time? If you edit the job, you should be able to see that at the JOB tab of the wizard at the bottom (see here for example: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95)

Thanks
Mike

I assume that the backup copy job does not complete in the interval and therefore fails. If it is the first one, then this is sometimes expected and we advice people to set the interval to a longer period and then change it back. If it is not the first one, then there might be other problems.

Can you confirm it is not the first one? If so, please log a support call so our engineers can (hopefully) find where the bottleneck is. Post the case ID here and the follow-up after that also

Thanks
Mike

Any ideas?
The specified interval is not enough for a backup copy job to finish processing. It might be a good idea to start with investigating bottleneck statistics to find the weakest spot in your deployment.

[MERGED] Interesting backup copy warning

Post by albertwt » Jul 24, 2017 2:59 am

I also got the same warning for the "Initial copy did not complete and will resume on the next copy interval".

Backup copy job fails to process generated changes within allocated sync interval. Consider increasing the interval, if you get the warning regularly. Thanks.
