Multiple data streams not starting
Running NBU 7.0.1 on Windows.
I have one large file server that I backup using multiple streams...6 streams in total. Ran a full backup of this server over the weekend, and only 3 out of the 6 streams ran. The 3 streams that are "missing" don't even show as unsuccessful, missed, etc. Not sure if this is behavior by design or something that went wrong? There are incrementals that run in the same policy and use the same selection list, and with the incrementals things seemed fine... The next night, 6 jobs ran, 1 failed. As I have my retry interval to 2, the failed job reran and completed successfully as it should.
What am I missing in the process? This is my understanding as to how it should work:
- When the schedule begins, the parent job should activate sub jobs for all the streams
- Depending on the number of active jobs per client, the sub jobs will begin...some active, some queued. In my case, one job runs at a time.
- If a queued job cannot start within the backup window, it should report error 196 stating the backup window has closed.
I'm not sure if my parent job didn't actually activate all the jobs so they would queue, or if anything missed in the backup window was merely skipped and not reported. My parent job showed the backup as being successful. The backups stopped around 6pm, even though the window would have allowed the jobs to run until 10am the next morning so I don't understand how the backup window could be the problem here.
