I have the problem that a client with tray icon maybe went to sleep and was not reactivated for backup.
Is there a way to activate it in order to do the planed backups?
I mean except creating windows-tasks corresponding to the backup-times.
System: Windows 8.1, patched
Server: Ubuntu 16.04, Urbackup 2.1.19
User was logged off.
i dont understand what s went to sleep means?
did the client backend process crashed?
is it on pause, you could try unposing it
server side , wha sthe status of the client, in status page, filter on client name slect to show all columns, show results
a) did you start the client as service or manually?
only if you stat it as service it will survive a users logoff action.
b) or do you mean that client-pc goes to sleep (power save) mode and you expect that urbackup wakesup the computer?
thanks for the replies! Sorry for the late response - I was busy at home.
I created a prebackup-batch file to save the power scheme of the client (in a file) before backup and to activate high performance and a postbackup-batch to restore it. I have no issues during backup.
My settings are:
Cleanup time window: Mon-Sun/2-5
File backups: Mon-Fri/12-24
Image backups: Mon-Fri/5-12
File backups: 4h incr./30d full
Image backups: 7d incr./84d full
I try to figure out a way to allow the client to sleep, but to wake up from standby, not from power-off, when it has to run a backup.
user logged off, the client went in standby, server-side client settings are to do incremental file backup at 12:00 and it did not.In my case the computer must be running in order to execute the backups defined in the settings.
Server-side status: client offline, no recent file backup, image backup OK
a) on the client I have the urbackup service running and the tray icon, but user logged off
b) yes, is it a problem?
