Backupjob in Gui says Success, nov Backupfile

Post by Novell2 »

Hi
I have checked from my customer all backupjobs. In the Gui it sys in Last result Success! If I go inside the Job I see Processed 0Kb, there are no objects to backup. On the Veeam Backupdirectory I can't see a file from this backuped server! So the GUI show me the wrong result! I deleted the Job and created the same again, now its working.
This means I have to check all Jobs although it shows success???

Thanks

Hello Werner,

The last job run is successfull due to the Retry option being initiated. If you see there were no objects to backup that means the first backup attempt failed to get the list of VM to backup for some reason and later on the backup of zero objects was successfull. To avoid such situation you may disable retry option.

Hope it helps!

I would not recommend disabling Retry option though. It is very useful to handle intermittent network failures, so disabling it will reduce the overall backup success rate dramatically. I have asked devs to fix the above mentioned bug in v5, so that the job is not marked as successful when no VMs were backed up.
