Backup jobs running too long, missing health checks, etc

Veeam Logoby wrightad » Mon Jul 10, 2017 1:00 pm

My backup jobs run once a night, do weekly fulls, and monthly health checks but they're going over the WAN and in a chain. When one job runs late and pushes over the midnight boundary, anything scheduled for that night later in the chain, such as a synthetic full or health check, gets missed. I don't have a lot of jobs but the network bottleneck is problematic enough that running the jobs in parallel wouldn't be ideal. I'm considering starting the jobs earlier in the day but I don't think that will resolve the issue alone - sometimes a health check or full will run 5+ hours. Any advice on getting around this would be awesome.

Hi,

I'd suggest you to place primary backups on storage closer to the main site, and use Backup Copy Job to transfer backup across the WAN.

Thank you
