Full backup failed, will incrementals continue until next full is successful?

We are using BackupExec 12.5 on Windows Server 2003.

Once a month our Network Administrators reboot all servers to implement the patches applied on Update Tuesday.

This always kills our full backup over the weekend on the jobs that go over onto multiple tapes.

My question is do the incrementals continue until the next succesful backup full job completes?

No Incrementials require a Full dadatset to work off of.

You must run a Full backup prior to any incremential job

What I'm asking is will any subsequent incrementals work off of the last successful full backup job which ran last week?

If you did not start a full backup then yes they will continue to run

But if a full backup started then it was reset even if it fails

Ok, yes it started, filled up the first tape then the server was rebooted before the next tape could be inserted to finish.

I was afraid of that.

Ok thanks.
