    Needs Media?

    Needs Media?

    I'm trying to do a staged backup, with clients backed up to disk, then the disk backup sets copied onto tape using a VXA-320 tape library (10 tape capacity). Backup keeps stopping on the second tape, asking that I insert the second tape. The second tape is already in the drive. If I select it, it says the tape is already in a backup set. (I did a recycle so it should only be in this set.) The tape only has 123GB on it. See the attached images, to see the tape backup set's members, and the contents of the tape drive and carousel. Retrospect 6 had no problem with this tape library.

    Start backing up a client from scratch?

    I don't believe any rules are date-oriented. It's just the User Files rule.
  4. I'd like to restart backing up our clients from scratch, reusing the backup sets. I've tried recycling the backup sets, but the next backup only gets the latest changed files, not everything. I've tried deleting backup sets and recreating them, and I seem to get the same thing. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Thanks, Jon

    How to Test Rules?

    What I wound up doing is to run a Copy to a local hard disk using the rule, then checking what was copied.
  6. "Adding an "exclude" folder designation would require writing real code in the scan path, which would, um, require work." I'd think it could piggyback on the private files/folders/volumes implementation that is already there, and seems to work. The client would have to be able to keep a list of paths which would be treated as if they were bullet-prefixed. The server would tell the client which paths to treat that way.
  7. I've found that the following also works: mv DocSets "•DocSets" ln -s "•DocSets" DocSets assuming private folders is enabled. This will be much more convenient than moving the folder to a different volume.
  8. I'm going to try moving the DocSets to a different disk and symlinking them back to /Developer. See if that helps. ... Yep, that worked nicely. Moved /Developer/Documentation/DocSets to a flash drive that isn't being backed up, symlinked them back to /Developer/Documentation, and then a no-files "backup" of /Developer flew to completion in 5 minutes, including snapshots.
  9. A dev tools person at Apple says DocSets don't use any hard links or anything tricky like that. If it's a matter of # of files: Hendry:DocSets jon$ ls -lR com.apple.adc.documentation.AppleSnowLeopard.CoreReference.docset/ | wc 79452 444395 5115784 Other directories with more files don't exhibit the snapshot problem.
  10. /Developer/Documentation... This narrows it down a bit more.

  13. I'm doing that right now. I suspect it is probably the DocSets in /Developer/Documentation. It's been chewing on the snapshot of /Developer/Documentation for 45 minutes so far. /Developer/Applications was quick. The machine was upgraded to 10.6 from 10.5, and Xcode was updated through many versions. It isn't running Xcode 4, though.
  14. Okay, I set up favorite folders for my Snow Leopard laptop: /Developer, /Users, and /Library The test script is using a rule that should exclude /Developer, among other things, using an OS X Folder exclude rule. Here are times for two runs, with nothing else happening on server or client. The backup of /Developer, which copies no files, takes a huge amount of time to generate a snapshot. Is there any way to exclude /Developer, make it an un-Favorite Folder, and back up everything else? + Normal backup using Snapshot Test at 10/14/10 (Activity Thread 1) To Media Set Rolling Backup... - 10/14/10 1:46:09 PM: Copying Developer on Hendry 10/14/10 1:46:09 PM: No files need to be copied 10/14/10 2:22:31 PM: Snapshot stored, 35.1 MB 10/14/10 2:22:36 PM: Comparing Developer on Hendry 10/14/10 2:22:39 PM: Execution completed successfully Duration: 00:36:30 (00:36:20 idle/loading/preparing) - 10/14/10 2:22:40 PM: Copying Users on Hendry 10/14/10 2:29:59 PM: Snapshot stored, 37.2 MB 10/14/10 2:30:04 PM: Comparing Users on Hendry 10/14/10 2:30:20 PM: Execution completed successfully Completed: 3302 files, 19.3 MB, with 16% compression Performance: 67.9 MB/minute (64.1 copy, 77 compare) Duration: 00:07:40 (00:07:05 idle/loading/preparing) - 10/14/10 2:30:20 PM: Copying Library on Hendry 10/14/10 2:32:53 PM: Snapshot stored, 24.6 MB 10/14/10 2:32:58 PM: Comparing Library on Hendry 10/14/10 2:33:01 PM: Execution completed successfully Completed: 40 files, 91 KB, with 0% compression Performance: 2.1 MB/minute (1.3 copy, 5.3 compare) Duration: 00:02:40 (00:02:34 idle/loading/preparing) + Normal backup using Snapshot Test at 10/14/10 (Activity Thread 1) To Media Set Rolling Backup... - 10/14/10 7:37:32 PM: Copying Developer on Hendry 10/14/10 7:37:32 PM: No files need to be copied 10/14/10 8:56:37 PM: Snapshot stored, 35.1 MB 10/14/10 8:56:43 PM: Comparing Developer on Hendry 10/14/10 8:56:51 PM: Execution completed successfully Duration: 01:19:19 (01:19:05 idle/loading/preparing) - 10/14/10 8:56:53 PM: Copying Users on Hendry 10/14/10 9:05:01 PM: Snapshot stored, 37.2 MB 10/14/10 9:05:05 PM: Comparing Users on Hendry 10/14/10 9:05:16 PM: Execution completed successfully Completed: 4 files, 9 KB, with 0% compression Performance: 0.1 MB/minute (0.1 copy, 0.1 compare) Duration: 00:08:23 (00:08:05 idle/loading/preparing) - 10/14/10 9:05:16 PM: Copying Library on Hendry 10/14/10 9:08:15 PM: Snapshot stored, 24.6 MB 10/14/10 9:08:20 PM: Comparing Library on Hendry 10/14/10 9:08:30 PM: Execution completed successfully Completed: 3 files, 52 KB, with 69% compression Performance: 0.4 MB/minute (0.6 copy, 0.3 compare) Duration: 00:03:14 (00:02:59 idle/loading/preparing) 10/14/10 9:08:48 PM: Execution completed successfully Total performance: 0.1 MB/minute with 54% compression Total duration: 01:30:58 (01:30:10 idle/loading/preparing)
