Jobs not running according to schedule set RRS feed

  • Question

  • We've just noticed that on selected servers our backup jobs are not running according to the schedule we have set.  In most cases they appear to be around 30 minutes earlier or later than specified.  For example:

    I have 4 DCs in 1 protection group set to backup the system state at 11:30pm everyday.  The jobs are actually running at 12:00am the following day

    I have 2 seperate volumes of the same fileserver set to back up home folders which should run at 7am, 11am and 4pm. One of the volumes is running this schedule while the other is running 6:30am, 11am, 4pm.

    The DCs in question run W2K8 SP2 and the fileserver W2K3 R2 SP2.  We are running DPM2010 and the agent versions are 3.0.7706.0

    Any ideas why the jobs are running like this?

  • Any ideas???

    Here are some screenshots showing the discrepancy:

    1: From the monitoring tab cleary shows the job started at 7:04:11 am -

    2: From the recovery tab showing that the only 3 points for 7th Jan are 6:28am, 11:02am and 4:01pm -

    The situation for the DCs is the same, monitoring tab shows the scheduled start time, recovery tab shows a different time.

  • Hi!

    When was the last synchronization before 7 am? If the sync was last run at 06:28 that would give the recovery time.

    Try changing the sync closer to 7 am.

  • The last sync would have been 6am (they are every hour with no offset). 

    Also the other volume that is part of that protection group and is conforming to the schedule.

    That doesn't explain why the DCs recovery point is at 12am and the schedule is set for 11:30pm - They don't sync as its just an express full backup.
