Backup Copy Job never compacts

Post by SBarrett847 » Jun 14, 2018 9:08 am

I've a Backup Copy Job going to an offsite location. The Job was seeded by external disk transfer, so it needs to have a Compact run on the data, in order to enable Block Cloning. I've set the Compact to run every night in the hope that it will kick into life, but it never does. I have enough space on the repository to run the compact, but I receive no error messages, nor any indication as to why it does not run the Compact on the job.

Any Ideas?

<Can't edit the above>

This is found in the log for the Job... Looks like a mix of American Date format and the Correct date format causing an issue?

Code: Select all

[13.06.2018 22:40:55] <01> Info     [FullStorageCompact] Checking if need to compact storage 2c1ce53e-b6cf-4ddb-a5db-0cc9cfb7ba2a

Confirmed with support that this is a bug within Veeam - date has to be set to use the backwards US format and the compact disabled and re-enabled in the job. Odd that I've not run into this before.

Judging on the date on your posts, it had no chances to be included in Update 3a (unless it was already reported earlier). Did our support engineer not provide you with the estimated release vehicle for the fix when closing the support case? I cannot look up internal case notes or the issue itself since you never posted the support case ID.
