Incomplete vib or vbk in Copy Job

Post by AdrianHinton »


What does it mean when you look at the properties of a backup copy job and see an incomplete status for either a vib or vbk? Are these files NOT ok to use for restores?

If the backup copy job isn't able to copy all the required data (for example, the interval has expired or connection has dropped), the interrupted restore point will be incomplete and you will not be able to restore all the VMs contained in it. During the next sync interval, data transfer will be resumed and missing blocks (those that are required to build the new restore point corresponding to the VM latest state) will be transferred along with the changes occurred since the last source restore point. Previous restore point (the one the connection drop has occurred on) will be left in incomplete state.
