Synthetic Backup failed - server termination

Post by jcurtiss7492 » Feb 10, 2019 12:35 pm

Hey all! I have my backup jobs set to make synthetic full backups on Saturday nights and Incrementals the rest of the week. Last night we had a power failure and powerchute powered down the backup server after the backup job had completed, but the synthetic hadn't finished.

My question is, what do I do about it? Will Veeam run incrementals all week and wait until next Saturday to do a Synthetic full? I have more than enough disc space for this. Is there anything I need to do? Thanks in advance!

Yes, it will wait until the next Saturday. Provided that increments run without problems (have you tried that?), you can temporarily schedule the synthetic full backup for today in the job settings, and run the job. After it's done, just revert changes and keep going with your original backup schedule.
