I have a Windows Server 2008 Standard box running Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 and its Continuous Protection Server. The CPS is on a set schedule to replicate data from multiple servers to a local hard drive. Once that completes I then have a job scheduled in Backup Exec to backup that CPS resource to tape. I should note, as already implied, I am not using CPS for constant protection, its a one-time replication that runs every night within a schedule.
The process itself is working fine, and the CPS is completely finished within its scheduled time-frame for at least 30 minutes before the tape backup is scheduled. Yet for some reason Backup Exec still claims CPS is backing up the files and so it can't copy it to tape. The CPS job completed, with no errors.
The tape backup appears to get most everything, if I chose the restore option in BE it shows all the data on the tape, a couple items have red X's on them but it's only one file out of many that it was unable to copy. Additionally I don't understand why it says the job failed, as opposed to completed with errors.
