I am trying to get Virtual Backups working, but when I try to run a virtual backup job, it appears to get created, but then never seems to actually run.
I have a full, and a couple incremental backups.
status director JobId Level Files Bytes Status Finished Name ==================================================================== 1283 Full 10,565 1.963 G OK 21-Dec-12 09:47 nms-Job 1284 Incr 314 129.6 M OK 21-Dec-12 09:49 nms-Job 1285 Incr 230 147.2 M OK 21-Dec-12 09:51 nms-Job 1288 Incr 525 138.8 M OK 21-Dec-12 11:25 nms-Job
I attempt to start a job from
bconsole like this.
*run job=nms-Job level=VirtualFull Using Catalog "MySQL" Run Backup job JobName: nms-Job Level: VirtualFull Client: nms-FileDaemon FileSet: nms-FileSet Pool: nms-pool (From Job resource) Storage: File_d1 (From Pool resource) When: 2012-12-21 13:07:54 Priority: 10 OK to run? (yes/mod/no): Job queued. JobId=1291
Then my new job, just sits there, doing nothing. The JobStatus shows that the job was created, but it appears to never run? All the full, and incremental backups are terminating normally.
*llist jobid=1291 JobId: 1,291 Job: nms-Job.2012-12-21_13.07.56_07 Name: nms-Job PurgedFiles: 0 Type: B Level: F ClientId: 4 Name: nms-FileDaemon JobStatus: C SchedTime: 2012-12-21 13:07:54 StartTime: 2012-12-21 13:07:56 EndTime: 0000-00-00 00:00:00 RealEndTime: 0000-00-00 00:00:00 JobTDate: 1,356,124,076 VolSessionId: 0 VolSessionTime: 0 JobFiles: 0 JobErrors: 0 JobMissingFiles: 0 PoolId: 19 PooLname: nms-pool PriorJobId: 0 FileSetId: 11 FileSet: nms-FileSet
I am getting very frustrated, that this isn't working, mostly because it isn't giving me any error logs, or output at all. I submit the job, and as far as I can tell nothing happens.
Is there some status, or debugging level that I can set to get a useful information about why this isn't working? What can I do to make this work?
I was originally running Bacula 5.0.2 on Debian Squeeze, out of frustration, I upgraded to the 5.2.6 in the backports repository, hoping that a new version might give me better results.
