Active Full Scheduled.... Incremental Instead Taken??

Post by rm4g00 » Aug 14, 2016 10:20 am

Hello all,

I had basically a simple active full scheduled for Saturday- yet for some jobs an incremental job was taken others a normal full backup was taken,

It doesnt make sense to me why some would complete a normal scheduled active full and others an incremental ?

Anyone have an idea..

Hi, most likely those jobs simply did not start on Saturday for whatever reason (but for example Sunday night only). Such issues are commonly observed when job chaining is in use (which is one of many reasons it is not recommended). Anyway, the reason should be immediately obvious from debug logs, so please just open a support case and our engineers will tell you the exact reason right away - otherwise, we can be guessing forever here. Thanks!
