Choice when Synthetic Full will run

Post by dlieshout@client.nl » Jan 26, 2013 9:14 pm

Have an issue. After a long backup job of several TB's to a remote site, a Synthetic Full will be started (on Saturday in our case).
But sometimes one or more VM's failed. Any others who want an enhancement request by adding a checkmark "Only Synthetic Full after job has end succesfullly".

Second issue is as follows: "Job2" has Synthetic Full selected on Saturday. This job "Run After" another job "Job1". That "Job1" took a bit longer and ended Sunday-morning. So Job2 starts on Sunday and does no Sythetic on Sunday. Any suggestion others than selecting Saturday and Sunday for the Jobs.

A trick for the second job: configure proxy to accept only one cuncurrent job, and run job2 right after job1. It will be officially started on saturday, even if due to delay of job1 the actual start date would be sunday.

Great suggestion. At first sight I was very happy with "Run After" but at this time there are some issues using it (also retries of failed VM's will sometimes not start if job is "run after").
Think I go back to start them all together (each 1 minute after another) and indeed use the proxy to run max 1 or 2 jobs together.
