Configuration Database Resynchronize

Veeam Logoby fast_cat » Mon Jun 01, 2015 4:13 pm

Hi,
Am seeing in the Veeam B&R History a job called 'Configuration Database Resynchronize' which seems to run every 4 hours. Can someone tell me what triggers this and what it actually tries to do ? If there is a log file where is it because I cant find it
regards

Configuration Database Resynchronize refers to repositories' rescan. It's being performed on pre-defined basis. Also, repository rescan can be executed manually by right-clicking on a repository and selecting 'Rescan repository". Thanks.

thanks for the reply. Thats sort of what I thought. However I get different behaviour based on how hte rescan is initiated. For example - the scheduled scan that runs every 4 hours completes successfully in 1 second (so I assume it has nothing to do).
When I run this rescan manually as you mention, it finds a backup repository and adds 167 backups into the 'imported' folder and I get lots of unwanted records in the Veeam Backup database . So the behaviour is different in these two cases. If I could find the logs then this might help me find out what is going on.

You're right, automatic and manual rescans work a bit different. The manual one will import backups that are located inside repository and missing inside product database. Thanks.

So if I have a repository shared by more than one backup server, and I do a manual rescan it seems to import all of the backup details for the jobs that arent associated with this backup server.

Right, all existing backups are imported during rescan, regardless of the backup server they were created by. This allows for restore on a newly installed backup server after the original one is lost.

thanks for the update. I have a slightly different issue now where on my VB&R servers I am seeing zero backups in the inventory even though I have 81 jobs all working successfully. So any ideas why it thinks I have zero backups ?

I'd recommend asking support to take a look at this.
