SBS 2008 Backup Report shows good backup after 11 seconds

Dear all,


using the Backup wizard in SBS 2008 and the reports available in the same console produces a report which is sent to the customers mailboxes that shows a good backup which took only 11 seconds although, when reviewing the logfiles and eventlogs, it run for more than one hour (daily, not initial) .

The customer is very unsettled about the result and does not trust his backup anymore.

Please see the attached picture. It is in german language. The yellow marker shows that the backup which was started at 23:00 (11:00 pm) is done and OK at 23:00:11.

Are there any fixes or settings to correct this?

Thank you!


regards,

Christian Wirth.

It would be worth checking that the server is set to the right time zone as well.

Thanks for your input!

Currently the backup was disable and enabled the third time. No effect. Sychnronisung with Atom Clock had no effect either, time zone was set corretctly. Sycnhronisung time did not change the behaviour (when there was a difference to the time before) .

Any additional ideas?

Have you tried recreating the backup job from scratch?  Would be worth trying.  Does the same result appear in the SBS Console?

Rebuilding Backup Jobs from Scratch didn't help either. Still the same error message.

When entering the SBS 2008 console and looing at the backup tasks it shows that the backups did run until 06:09 in the morning most of the times.

Backup Assist is currently running in a trial and is doing a good job. Thnaks for the hint.
Whatever I was trying to get rid of the successful backup message after 10 seconds did not help in the end.
Having a call with Microsoft to get this fixed might be more expensive than using backup assist.

Thank you for the tip!
