Frequency Based Backups Reruns
I am looking for clarity on something that I have observed in Netbackup this morning. In Netbackup 220.127.116.11 I have setup a policy that backups up some VMs using a query to select the VMs I want to backup. The schedules are setup as frequency based and are setup as follows,
Weekly run every 5 days backup window 18:00 - 08:00 open Saturday, Sunday and Monday
Daily run every 1 day backup window 18:00 - 08:00 open everyday
On my backup report this morning I was showing that one of the VMs in the policy had failed its backup, I have 2 tries per 12 hours set and my report from opscenter is reporting on the last job status. Anyway the backup job had failed both attempts when i looked at it in the activity monitor, but i noticed that 06:25 this morning the policy kicked off again and this time only ran a backup of the failed server which was successful. Can anyone tell me how this has come about? I am newish to the frequency based schedules as I have opted for calendar based in the past but I have seen the error in my ways and started to use the frequency schedules.
Any help explaining this would be great.
