Snapshot Retention Policy

Using CPS 10d.

My problem is that it dosnt take any snapshots at all anymore.
One day it just stopped. It only takes the most recent files and forget everything else.

I am not sure if I missed something somewhere.

Keep each snapshot for 24 hours
Keep one daily for 7 days
Keep one weekly for 4 weeks

Thats the current setup.

in total snapshots it say 0

We got 1 TB HD... using 600 GB so far.

The snapshot should run every 2 hour between 08:00 and 19:00 everyday but nothing happens.

I dont even got a warning in the logs. It just dosnt do the snapshots.

I also lost the abiltiy to take backups via BE 10d to tape from the CPS "feature" in the selectionlist in BE. Instead I have to make backups directly from the CPS backup destination.

I dont want the files to only be on HD... need to move em to tape also :)

Well, any suggestion on this??

No, I dont get any alerts.

I just dont get any snapshots. And I cant see the alternative in BE so I cant choose to backup snapshots from the CPS either.

Thats about it. No errors. nothing.

Hi,

We apologize for the inconvenience caused because of the delayed response. Pleases let us know if your issue / problem is resolved so that we can archive this post.

However, we would like to know :

Can you manually create a snapshot from CPS console > setup > backup destination > right click > create snapshot now ..

are you getting any error while creating it manually ?

Update us on the same and revert for any further Query
Hope this will help you
