Technical Solution


The Primary Backup has a failure due to a server reboot but continues to Backup the servers which are later in the resource order. The Duplicate Backup from Deduplication Storage Folder to Tape/B2D fails on the server which was rebooted and does not Backup rest of the servers from the original Backup set which were Backed up after the server which got rebooted during the primary backup job.

Duplicate- Local Disk:

Unexpected end of backup set encountered on DDP:5.
V-79-57344-34004 - End of data set was unexpectedly encountered.
The connection to target system has been lost. Backup set canceled.


This may occur if the selection list of the primary backup job contains a resource for which Backup Exec provides GRT (Granular Restore Technology) capability.



  1. Disable GRT for that resource.


     2.  Create a separate Selection List to Backup GRT resources and Duplicate them.
