ETA 47 years full backup


#1

I have a client which I backup but is not online very often - and if only for a short time.
What I did is enforcing the user of the specific client to start the PC every few month and keep it running for some days.
This time I do have a ETA of 47 years and I know that most of the data is already existing on the urbackup server, but it is stuck at downloading MetaData packages.

What is happening ? Why does it take that long and where is the file located, I am unable to find it.

I am a little confused to be honest, and also couldn’t find anything helpful on the internet nor in the forum.
Server is 2.2.11 on a QNAP
Client is 2.2.5 on Windows 10

Something I missed, the client itsef says

I restarted the urbackup server, because STOP the full backup activity on the server was not working.
No I started the full backup from the client site and at the moment the server log activity shows

I have no clue.


#3

Moved to testing category because parallel hash load was enabled.


#4

ah, you are right.
I disable it and verify if the backups are working afterwards.

thanks for the hint :wink: even if it was not intended :smiley:


#5

Backup runs without issues now - having turned of parallel hashing. It still takes a really long time, but I assume it reduces the time to finish pretty fast, because most of the files are already stored on the server.
