Initial job was created on a saturday by looks of it with the forward incremental...and yes, I do only have a single vbk file and the rest are incrementals. I will run another full manually and see what happens

Well F-WORD
Just ran that job and the god damn thing failed

12/14/2012 8:32:23 PM :: Windows2008R2 is no longer processed by this job. Make sure this change is intentional.

Every VM in the job is now skipped and i get the above message...and all I did is run active-full...FFS...

This message would indicate that something else has happened with the infrastructure before you ran active full. This could also be a temporary condition (occasionally, vCenter/ESXi would not return the list of VMs correctly) - in this case, next run will just work.

If you still have issues, please create a new topic and include your support case ID (as this issue is offtopic for this thread).

"Be aware, when you run your synthetic fulls you must schedule them to run on a day when you run backups or they never happen. For example, in the above scenario, if you scheduled backups to occur on M-F..but checked the box for a Saturday synthetic full, since the job won't launch on Saturday, the synethetic fulls never get created. Thus, you end up with tons of incrementals...which can never clear out as you cannot delete the very fist Full..which all subsequent incrementals depend upon."

Is this correct? I did not realize this

This was correct prior to v6.1 (as far as I remember), right now synthetic full backup will run on the specified day just as you want it to, periodic job schedule does not matter.

[MERGED] Not deleting restore points?

Veeam Logoby briggs » Mon Jul 01, 2013 9:16 am

Hi,
The retension policy of some of our backups is set to just 2, with forward incrementals. Does Veeam not delete the old files? We still have lots of .vib files on the backup target disk? Does it not remove these automatically???

Alan, please review the existing topic you've been merged into for explanation of the number of restore points stored on disk when using forward incremental backup mode. If you still need any further clarification, feel free to ask here. Thanks.

Set 14 as a retention policy and create synthetic or active full backup once a week. Though, please, be aware that sometimes number of restore points will exceed the specified value.

I’d also recommend reviewing corresponding section of User Guide that might shed a little more light on how retention policy works in both backup methods.

Thanks.

What backup mode is being used by both jobs? It seems that it’s forward incremental mode.

For more clarification regarding how retention policy works in case of forward incremental mode, kindly, see answers provided above. Thanks.

I am using Incremental (every day) with "Enable sythetic fulls" (every days) without "Active full backup"
Thanks
