Technical Solution


A recovery point set (base + incrementals) job only creates FULL backups even when the schedule is ready to peform an incremental backup.


No error is noted. The job simply creates a base image when an incremental is scheduled, or no image is created at all.


This issue is fixed in Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Symantec System Recovery (SSR) 2013. SP1 is available on LiveUpdate.

Supplemental Materials


  Incrementals not created when job uses encryption.
