no it's not for archive purposes, it's to continue with the backup chain.
I have several vm's in the job but only one of them is having an error dealing with the maximum amount of restore points in a chain when saving to a dedupe appliance. I can just kick off an active full on the backup job but the active full will occur on the whole job, I just need an active full on the one vm. This backup job has about 25 vm's so it's not a big job. but I am thinking what if I have this on a backup job with many more, I really don't want to have to run an active full on say for example 80vm's, when I only need to run it on 1.
