Stopping an active Synthetic Full Backup

Post by stevil » Mar 21, 2011 8:41 am

I have a synthetic full backup that's been running over our WAN for 3 days now, I need to stop it as it's got at least another 2 days to go and it's eating the bandwidth at the site in question.
When I go to stop it I get the message "Backup's files for this job will be left in the inconsitent state. Are you sure you want to stop the job".
Am I OK to stop the job or will my entire backup set become corrupt? I'm assuming that all this will effect is the active synthetic full and the partial VBK that's been created so far.

Once I've stopped this job the intention is to move all the backup files to a Linux server and let that process the synthetic job in 5 minutes, as nature intended ;)

Cheers

Hi Steve,

Provided that you have "Transform previous full backup chains into rollbacks" disabled, then you should be able to stop the job and continue incremental backup job after switching to a Linux target.

Thank you!

No, I've not selected that option, so my original VBK is untouched :)
Thanks for the quick reply.

After 30 minutes of waiting it still doesn't want to stop this job......hmmm. Do I just stop the veeam service to force it to stop? :/

I guess you should end all agents' processes on the backup server, but let our support team take a look at the situation live.
