So I have a few jobs on a vsphere datastore. Daily forever forward with another backup copy job to a different datastore. It's been working just fine. I have a ubuntu 14.04 guest that was converted to a template. Twice now, I've seen the nightly backup copy job finish with a warning. Both times, the only guest that had an issue was the ubuntu template. It says "Initial copy did not complete, and will resume on the next copy interval". Looking at the nightly backup job, it says "Skipping task because backup already exists for this template". I assume this is because templates never execute, so nothing would change. That makes sense, but then shouldn't the backup copy job be smart enough not to try to copy it? e.g. bogus warning from the backup copy job?
