Veeam Backup Deleting Backups

Post by dandemutande » Feb 04, 2019 8:40 am

Hi Team,

We have a strange situation here. It seems Veeam Backup is deleting backups . l notice there is a backend command which runs on the backup server . Any idea why this is so ?

Code: Select all

/tmp/VeeamAgent6265cdb4-05bb-4497-81bd-387fa2e15bcc -l flush,/var/log/VeeamBackup/Util.VolumesHostDiscover__cli.log,/tmp/VeeamBackup/Util.VolumesHostDiscover__cli.log -i 67078057-771c-4ecf-b2d0-8a4d0ae66a6d -g 2500-5000 --setFileLimit 4096 --mgmtConnKey AQAAAAAAAAAjAAAATWFuYWdlciB0byBBZ2VudCBjaGFubmVsIGVuY3J5cHRpb24BAAAAAQAAAAAAAACQSFGHJbzUAQIAAABKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIAAAABAAAAAMKJwvThgFn81yrTo/zuZEoS/m70a+ICLOS8pZzejcOP1xYXPGW1hpELxHZ3avvCYQAAAAGbG7/gHSPDm5n/vFvnB9zw==

Hi Dandemutande,

First: Welcome to the forums
Second: Veeam Backup can indeed delete backups if they are out of retention (which it should do). Can you elaborate a bit more on what exactly you are seeing?

Thanks
Mike

Thanks for your response. Our retention policy is the default 7 restore points but we notice everything is getting deleted , this even includes full backups that we ran today. Could there be a database corruption somehow ? The Windows Veeam event viewer is not saying much .

That behavior is indeed not intended, so please do as Foggy suggests.

And in addition to what Foggy says, please post the case ID (and the outcome after investigation of our engineers)

Thanks
Mike
