Veeam 5.0.2 - retry job does not contain all failed VM

Post by onsik » Jun 27, 2012 12:17 pm

HI

WE use Veeam 5.0.2 in out ESX environment. We have ESXi 4 and 5
WE have multiple jobs scheduled with Veeam.
Example - we have a backup job created that contains 20 x VMs. Sometimes 5 VMs faield to be backed up and retry job only list 3-4 VMs that failed.
Any reason why it does contail all 5 VMs which failed ?

Thanks
Onsik

Hello! Could some of the retried VMs fail again while you are looking at the number of successfully retried ones?

Yes, sometimes VMs on retry job fail again.
The job is scheduled to run at night so when I come in the morning the job + retry is already finished
We have retry set up 3 times, but even after that some of the VM are not backed up.

If it's always the same VM and not random ones, I would look into the VM itself, it happened once to us and it was a corrupted vmdk file after some LUN migrations we made.

Mariusz, if your point is that some of the VMs fail all the retry attempts, then it is best to provide full logs to our technical support team and let them investigate this for you. Such technical issues cannot be troubleshot without reviewing logs.
