Queueing SureBackup jobs

Post by talltim »

I've now got Surebackup setup and I have ironed out various issues with individual servers.
Our servers are grouped into various backup jobs and I have created equivalent Surebackup jobs using the Linked Jobs function. Each SureBackup Job is set to run after its relevant Backup job.
I've found that if I attempt to manually start a SureBackup job while another is running, it fails as the Virtual Lab is in use. What happens if a scheduled SureBackupJob tries to start running before the previous job has freed up the Virtual Lab? Does it fail or (hopefully) queue the job until the Lab is free?

Hello,

Virtual Lab cannot be shared between two different running jobs. I've just tested it: the scheduled job is started and failed immediately with a corresponding error message. I'd recommend to have different schedule for SureBackup jobs to avoid any kind of intersection or to create a dedicated Virtual Lab for the second job.

Thanks!
