Backup exec job status says updating
I have discussed this process in blog posts 3 Ways To Deal With Lingering Hyper-V Checkpoints Formerly Known as Snapshots and . As a matter of fact you should avoid this if possible at all.
The good news is that this can be done via Power Shell.
There are many reasons for this, but that’s not the focus of this blog post.
We’re going to show you how to remove lingering Backup checkpoints from a Hyper-V Virtual Machine that where not properly removed after a backup on Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V.
You’ll need to do that manually here and be done with it.
Conclusion: there is no need to dive in and start merging the lingering backup checkpoints manually.
Alternately, if you would like to use existing network shares as network user data folders, or if you want to create network user data folders manually, then do not use Storage Locations. I’m trying to create a Storage Location on a remote file server, and I am receiving an error indicating the MSDE Database Instance for the Desktop and Laptop Option needs to have access to the remote file server. To create Storage Locations on a remote file server, you must use an account that has administrative rights on the remote file server.
You can change the account credentials that were used to create the Storage Location. DLO does not retroactively apply changes to encryption and compression settings to user data that is already backed up.
Normally your VM is now already running from the vhdx anyway. During a normal backup that file is deleted when the merge of the redirect AVHDX is done.You said it doesn't complete the job; how far does it get?Worked with Dell server tech support and found that if you stop the backups and kill the process (Volume Shadow Copy Service), then restart the backup it resets the Volume Shadow Copy Service and will complete a back. You must stop the backup and then go into Task Manager, right click on the process and select End Process, then restart the backup job.If you want DLO to automatically create network user data folders, use a Storage Location.When new users are added to a Storage Location, network user data folders are automatically created for them within the Storage Location.
