  • Resubmiting a failed Intellisnap (VM) backup for an individual VM
    Posted: 11-14-2019, 10:19 PM

    hi all,

    hoping someone will be able to help me understand this one. new user here.

    1] is it possible to resubmit a single failed intellisnap (VM) backup? if so, any documentation on this would be useful.

    from what I see, when I click on job history for the client (virtual server -> backupset -> subclient -> client associated) and select resubmit job, (as some jobs completed w/one or more errors) I dont have the option to select the actual host that had errors. any link would be useful to understand the differences to other job / operation types.

    thanks,

    gee x

    The easiest way would be to create a once-off subclient with lun/datastore and a VM filter that excludes all but the vm. However initellisnap for virtual environments are meant to protect all to VMs in the datastore/lun and provide backup consistency across vm's.

    Thanks Anthony for taking time to respond.

    Could the once-off subclient be easily modified adhoc as/when failures occur? i.e. as situations arise, I assume the subclient could be easily edited to reflect failures (and reruns issued as needed?) without affecting backup/recovery?

    VM Subclients don't have that functionality natively. What problems are you expecting with initellisnap?

    Hi, thanks for your continued responses.

    If VM subclients dont have the functionality, I'd imagine the clients (VM cluster) could potentially be filled with dozens of individual subclients for each failed backup that would need to be resubmitted as/when a VM dies? The idea of running the entire cluster of backups is the problem I'm expecting, if that answers your question? Are there any other options to keep things from getting / looking a little messy? Or is that the "solution" to this particular issue?

    Hope that makes sense? Cheers.
