I am wanting to get some insight and pick you all’s brains on your best practices when it comes to copyjobs.
Here’s the situation I am in:
I have backups servers that have fairly complex backups schedules that range from hourly backups to daily, and even weekly backups.
Lately I have been running into copyjob failures that say “the restore point is locked by another job”. This is happening when primary backup file healthchecks, merges, or defrags run. I created a topic about this, last week, and
The problem is, I have no idea how to schedule the copyjobs around these schedules...there just really isn’t a way, and consequently, i don’t know of a way to avoid these failures. They used to not happen. It’s only been recently that they have started cropping up. I am also working with support on this, but I would love you all’s input and get some insight into how you all tackle primary and copy backups and scheduling.
