Backup Failure - is no longer processed by this job

Veeam Logoby cardendave » Mon Jan 18, 2016 11:06 pm

Hi Guys

I have a problem with a clients backup which I believe is quite common:

server.server.local is no longer processed by this job. Make sure this change is intentional.

From what I am reading this is something to do with a change in vmware, but nothing has changed. I have tried removing the virtual machines and readding them but no joy, although I am doing this without submitting in between as I cannot submit zero VMs. If I create a new job it works, however I cannot recreate the old job as I do not have the space to start a new repository and it also goes to Cloud Connect that I would also have to reseed.

Support case: 01670150

Thanks in advance

I'm wondering what is chosen as a job source. Individual VMs or container, such as VMware Folder, vCenter, Resource Pool, etc.? Object in question is a VM or something different? Thanks.

This happens when VM moref ID is changed, so I would also investigate it with our support engineer (should be easy to find through the logs).

Also, this fact should not result in the job failure, this is just a warning that will go away after deleted VMs retention period expires.

We also occasionally get random ID changes, causing this same issue in our environment. Same thing. I just remove/re-add the VM to the job and go on (no job recreation, etc). Its next backup will run a full of that particular VM in the job, it does give the same "complaint" until retention passes, along w/ seeing the VM show up twice in the backup file until passing. I dunno, I just live w/ it and cut my eyes at VMware when it happens.

hi
i had a case some days ago. #01243304
how to assign the new ID to the old backup files.
result: not possible and no plans for a tool/workaround to do this. :-((
i know this is not exact this case. just for information if you are thinking about fixing this case this way.

I wouldn't say it is that random. There are a number of vSphere operations causing it to change.

There's actually a tool that support is aware of that help to match VM IDs in vCenter database, though I'm not saying it's applicable to your specific case.

Thanks foggy, great article! But for us it's, we all go home at the end of the day, nothing happens/changes over night via human hands, no DRS running, replication, vmotions, etc., come in the next morning, Veeam suddenly can't find/identify a few VM's here and there. As mentioned, I just remove/re-add and go about my business. It's few and far between, doesn't seem to hurt much, so I just live w/ it. Until it happens w/ one of my 3-7TB VM's, then it might become an issue. :wink:

I'd check VMware event logs right after this occurs, to investigate the reasons. It shouldn't change on its own.

...and in order to do that you can use Veeam ONE predefined reports from the VMware Configuration Tracking Report Pack
