Failed to generate points Error: Socket has been forcibly cl

Veeam Logoby Robvil » Mon May 01, 2017 5:53 am

Hi,

My copy job to DR site failed the other day with "Failed to generate points Error: Socket has been forcibly closed. Failed to recover connection" which is expected, as the Linux repository ran out of memory.
But what does "Failed to generate points" mean?

When i look at properties for my copy job all dates is listet as okay and the job also ended with "Full backup file compact completed successfully".

It seems that simple, GFS, compact full or active full restore point failed to be created. Might be worth checking whether:

- There are no missing GFS points
- The latest restore points have size comparable to the previous points of the same type

Thanks.

I´m not sure looking at the numbers - I´ll open a case to get it verified.

If my memory serves me well, backup copy job always creates an incremental file within an interval regardless of restore point creation result. So, I was suggesting checking whether it's been indeed a normal restore point, and not a just placeholder; and size is a good indicator.

Anyway, support team will be able to assist you with troubleshooting process.

Thanks.

OK, let's wait till support team review the corresponding logs and pass a final verdict. Chances are, you encountered an intermittent issue that didn't cause anything, but there is no harm in double checking.
