Case ID : 00826480
Just wondering if someone can point me in the direction of what I'm doing wrong here.
We have a fairly simple setup :
2x vmWare 5.5 hosts, 1 Dell EQL SAN all hooked up via separate iSCSI network
2x NAS boxes, one on the local LAN, one on the WAN
What I want to do is back up the VMs onto the LAN NAS, with a copy job also storing to the LAN NAS for archival backups (Monthly/Quarterly etc), with another copy job running to take less frequent copies to the WAN NAS so there's offsite cover. I thought the backup copy job is the one I needed but perhaps there's a better way, because at the moment I'm tempted to just set up a robocopy script to copy the backup files manually!
The backup jobs themselves are running fine, but the copy-jobs are causing no-end of email warning/failures, but mostly seem to be "Incremental copy was not processed during the copy interval" or "Initial copy did not complete, and will resume on the next copy interval"
I've tried different permutations of start time, interval, selecting the VMs by infrastructure/backup/jobs but nothing seems to work. The only thing that seems to work is to create backup jobs rather than copies.
The other thing I've noted is that on the odd occasion where it does run, the files on the NAS are only 30MB, even when the backup job is between 200GB and 1.2TB?
Thanks in advance,
