What happens if my appliance is restarted during a backup in PHDVB 6.5?


Describes the recovery procedure performed by the VBA plus additional manual steps that may be needed.


The running backup job will be canceled and any leftover snapshots will be removed the next time a backup is run. In addition, a job runs on startup and once daily to find and remove any leftover snapshots. If snapshots cannot be removed automatically, they can be removed manually using vSphere Client. If the job was a scheduled backup job, and the appliance restarts within one hour of the job's start time, the job will start again, automatically, when the PHD VBA finishes restarting.
