Strange scheduled backup behavior



  • Ok… Here we go again… Seems that PA gets more and more probs with every release… :eek:

    Scheduled task runs every night. Backup works fine. Uploading to ftp doesn’t work.

    Uploading C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp_PA1753544759\bkshares-19-11-2008.7z
    Backup Done. –- 19.11.2008 08:31:23

    When I run the pbs from within pa everything seems to work…

    Uploading d:_PA665377261\bkshares-19-11-2008.7z
    connecting to ritstor
    220 Gene6 FTP Server v3.10.0 (Build 2) ready…

    230 User ritbackup logged in.

    setting directory
    Uploading bkshares-19-11-2008.7z
    Backup Done. — 19.11.2008 09:09:29

    HOW can this be? I have several other pa backups running on this server. Upload works fine!! This is the only scheduled task that doesn’t upload…

    something due to the permissions maybe? Does it happen every time or just once?



  • Permissions are fine because the scheduled job runs and creates a file. This is just not uploaded.
    When I run the job manually everything works fine.

    Happens all the time…

    and other backups, ftp works fine when scheduled?



  • Yes… Even on the same machine… Checked really everything. All settings are the same…


  • conexware

    try changing the name of the backup file and then running “schedule”… does it work then?


  • conexware

    for schdule - is the same user account used as the one when you execute backup manually?



  • Yes it is… Created a new file and changed the name and it works now… No idea why… This is not the first time that some jobs work and some don’t. No idea why…

    if it works with changed filename, then for some reason ftp could not delete old file…

    are all of your backups with filenames that dont change?



  • They do change and are copied every night per script to different directories.
    So for PA there is just an empty directory…
