There are a few approaches to take when encountering this issue:
- Archive more frequently.
- Reduce the amount of backups being performed on the system.
- Increase the retention within the system on clients to allow for backups to stay on the system longer.
We will now need to edit the field called ProtectArchiveBackups to allow (or not allow) the backups that are going to be placed on your Cold Backup Copy media to be held in place until the data is confirmed on the media.
FROM THE WEB INTERFACE
Click CONFIGURE (page)> Appliances (tab) and select the name of your Unitrends appliance. Click the Edit button above. Click the Advanced (tab). Click the General Configuration.
FROM THE SSH COMMAND LINE:
Connect to the appliance via SSH and edit "master.ini". Under the [StorageManager] section, change the following line to equal True:
ProtectArchiveBackups=False ; Protect backups in executing archive jobs from being purged
ProtectArchiveBackups=True ; Protect backups in executing archive jobs from being purged
When the system attempts to archive the backup, it had already been purged. This typically occurs when the system is needing storage space for new backups to land.
NOTE: With changing the "ProtectArchiveBackups" value to True, the system runs the risk of filling up the system during the archive (depending on the time archive takes to complete).
