Full backup failed will next job be full as well?

Veeam Logoby ashman70 » Mon Apr 11, 2016 3:08 am

I have two large VM's that do full backups once a week, both failed this weekend and one failed on its first retry. Due to the time the backup takes I had to cancel its second retry attempt. When this job goes to run tomorrow night which will usually be an incremental, will it attempt another full backup? If so, how can I prevent this?

I have opened a case for both these jobs and uploaded logs files so we can figure out why they failed.

I am running the latest version of 8 with the latest patch.

Thanks.

The next run will be incremental. Full backup will be attempted on the next day it is scheduled at.

For whatever reason, when it ran tonight, it tried to do another full, I had to cancel it. Is there a setting that is forcing it to complete a full?

Only full backup schedule settings that can be found in the job options. Can you tell me how the latest restore point is reflected in GUI? Isn't shown as inconsistent ("corrupted") by any chance? Thanks.

Seems I spoke too soon, if some VMs were already processed and valid data is contained in the VBK file, the next job run will create VIB file, where incremental data for those VMs will be placed, however, full data for VMs that were not processed during previous run will also be written there. I guess I meant the scenario where no valid restore points were created on the day active full is scheduled at.

Other than reconfiguring the job to forever incremental, is there a way to stop it from retrying the full job?

I don't think switching the mode will help either.
