Large time gaps between individual server backups, on one backup job

Created: 14 Nov 2012 • Updated: 14 Nov 2012

I have just started implemending vmdk grt backups to disk, and on the first go off this over a weekend the backup was taking approx 90 hrs, looking further into this ive noticed that there are large gaps from when a server has been backed up to when the next one starts upto 8 hrs in some cases, so out fo the 42 hrs it took to back up, it was actually backing up for only 24 of those hours.  The actual backup starts at midnight

Server Start Date Start Time End Time
Server1 03/11/2012 00:46:08 00:58:41
Server2 03/11/2012 01:50:09 01:59:03
Server3 04/12/2012 08:19:36 09:52:28
Server4 04/11/2012 14:20:36 23:32:37
Server5 05/11/2012 02:05:51 02:08:26
Server6 05/11/2012 09:28;58 09:41:05
Server7 05/11/2012 12:03:07 12:33:10
Server8 05/11/2012 16:16:27 16:33:13
Server9 05/11/2012 17:54:19 18:56:26

I have no problem with the verifiying of these servers as it starts a couple of seconds after the previous server has been verified.

Im using Backup Exec 2010 r3 and on Server 2008 rs std.  Both are fully upto date with updates.

Just seeing and wondedring if anyone else has come accross this and what could be causing it.
