Lots of problems with surebackup and VM's not powering on as well.
Yes from dedupped backup storage device so i can understand it's not perfect but the results differ so much that it can't be just the dedup backup storage.
For example i was just trying some things, first try the exchange server power on completes in 21 minutes, next run it fails after 1 hour. However the VM itself can be logged into fine using remote console from vmware. In fact in previous testings i noticed it increased the succes rate dramatically just by logging in to the VM. If all i did was log in into the VM using vmware remote console then fail % would drop down to 0 (or almost 0).
So yes i understand how storage can have an effect, but not that much. Snce it was midday the dedup backup storage was not used for anything else. So how can 1 run stat successfully in 21 minutes, but the next run fail in 1 hour? And why can i login and check services stats with 100% succes rate after 10 minutes?
SureBackup is still not Veeam worthy tbh.
Next to this, imo pretty big usability issue, there's also the issue that both application groups and linking it to a whole job don't offer enough flexibility so you may need to create strange setups (exclude option for linking, please). And let's not even talk about the SQL script
We use it, but don't really take it that serious. Surebackup jobs failed...oh well...must be surebackup that's burping again. Don't have time to check it today so i'll just assume it was surebackup that burped and not that it's a real issue...You get the picture.
