Iperius Backup Manual
You create a scheduled backup in Windows Server 2008/2012/2016/2019/2022 (including the R2 version) for regular data backup, but the Windows Server Backup schedule not running on schedule as expected. When you manually start the backup, it runs as successfully. Below is a real case from Microsoft:
Iperius backup manual
"I'm struggling with a problem that I've yet to find a solution to. I have a brand new Windows Server 2012 R2 installation. I've created a scheduled local backup to a local Hard drive, not a network location. The backup configures and schedules properly, but when the time arrives for it to run, it never runsIf I check the Scheduled tasks, I see the backup task changes from ready to queued. The backup job shows as not running, not failed, not anything. Wbadmin just shows the next backup as being tomorrow, with no successful backup and no failed backup. Each day is the same thing.If I run the backup manually, it will run successfully every time. I have tried to search for similar problems and found a few similar threads, but none of the suggested solutions have done anything. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing this?"
1. Whether you want to backup to external hard drive or network share, make sure the destination location is well connected and you do have permission to write data to it. It means the permission of the shared folder on the target need to be everyone with full permission. To check it:
3. If after that, schedule backup is not started as it should, you can write wbadmin backup command or combine wbadmin and Task Scheduler. Click here to learn more about wbadmin schedule backup. To use both of them, check the stepwise guide in the next part.
4. For those who are using Task Scheduler to run scheduled backup and it still fails, you can manually start the task to see if it works. If it backs up successfully, you can check if the Task Scheduler service is set to Automatic and the task was set to Run whether the user is logged on or not. If it fails after a manual start, you need to check if the wbadmin command is correct.
From above, you can get the causes and solutions to Windows Server Backup not running on schedule. But how to create a scheduled backup in Windows Server 2008/2012/2016/2019 etc step by step? You could use Windows Server Backup or Task Scheduler.
For schedule task with Windows Server Backup: It allows you to create a schedule backup with its Backup Schedule Wizard, but it's limited to creating one schedule backup. If you want to create multiple scheduled backups, you can choose to delete or modify the previous one.
For schedule task with Task Scheduler: To complete the schedule backups, you need to use both Task Scheduler and Wbadmin. In Task Scheduler, you have multiple schedule options, including daily, weekly, monthly, etc.
Thus, if you want multiple schedule backups, the second method will be a better choice. Then, I'll walk you through the steps to schedule backup Windows Server with Task Scheduler and Wbadmin. For the first method, you can refers to: schedule automatic backup in Windows Server 2016.
Step 6. Then, start a new action in the Action tab. Select Start a program action, and type wbadmin in the Program/script box and write a backup command in the Add arguments(optional) box. To backup the entire C: drive to H: drive, you can type as follow:
Step 7. Go to Conditions and Settings to check if you want to set other settings. After that, click OK to perform Windows Server Backup run scheduled backup now with Task Scheduler and Wbadmin.
That's the entire process to schedule backup Windows Sever with Task Scheduler and wbadmin, which requires you to have some knowledge of the wbadmin command line. Only in this case, you can use it method effortlessly. If you don't want to waste time learning the parameters or think it's complicated, you can choose to schedule backup Windows Server in an easier way.
As a user-friendly server backup program, AOMEI Backupper Server can be your best choice. Because it supports multiple schedule backups and enables you to back up any items you want including disk, system, partition, and files. Below are some useful features of it:
Schedule Backup: It allows you to create multiple backup schedules daily, weekly, or monthly, backup on a specific event like system shutdown of Event triggers, or use the plug-and-pull backup method - USB Plug in makes it even more convenient.
Full/Incremental/Differential Backup: By default, if you enable a schedule task, this software will create incremental backups after the first full backup. Also, you can choose to use differential backup, which is relatively independent and has better data integrity.
Automatic Backup Cleanup: It allows you to delete old backups automatically with one of the cleanup methods in it, such as, By quality, By time, By daily/weekly/monthly, which greatly reduces the risk of backup disk full issue. To keep old backup as long as possible, try the last option.
Besides, it supports multiple backup destinations and all the operating systems, Windows Server 2003/2008(R2)/2012(R2)/2016(R2)/2019/2022/SBS and Windows 11/10/8/7/XP/Vista, so you can save the backup on the hard drive, external hard drive, a network share, etc without limitation.
Then, download AOMEI Backupper Server and run this software. To run backup task within one company, try AOMEI Backupper Technician or TechPlus edition. Learn more about them on the edition comparison page.
2. As you can see, the system-related partitions have been selected by default. You need to specify the backup destination location where the backup will be saved. You can backup Windows Server 2012 to USB drive, external hard drive, network drive, NAS, etc.
3. After that, click Schedule Backup to enable a schedule to decide when to run the backup or how it runs. The scheduled backup will be performed with incremental backups defautly to save disk space, and you can change it to differential backup under Backup Scheme.
4. (Optional) To be sure your backup disk always has enough space to store new backups, you still need to enable automatic backup cleanup under the Backup Scheme to automatically delete the old backups as you wish. It's suggested to use By daily/weekly/monthly method, which keeps old backup as long as possible while using less disk space.
Besides, it still offers higher editions to protect unlimited PCs and servers within your company and unlimited billable technical services, such as, AOMEI Backupper Technician or AOMEI Backupper Technician Plus. It also enables you to copy the installation directory for portable version creation and run backup task on any computer without installing it again.
A copy-only backup is a SQL Server backup that is independent of the sequence of conventional SQL Server backups. Usually, taking a backup changes the database and affects how later backups are restored. However, occasionally, it is useful to take a backup for a special purpose without affecting the overall backup and restore procedures for the database. Copy-only backups serve this purpose.
A copy-only log backup preserves the existing log archive point and, therefore, does not affect the sequencing of regular log backups. Copy-only log backups are typically unnecessary. Instead, you can create a new routine log backup (using WITH NORECOVERY) and use that backup together with any previous log backups that are required for the restore sequence. However, a copy-only log backup can sometimes be useful for performing an online restore. For an example of this, see Example: Online Restore of a Read-Write File (Full Recovery Model).
In Azure SQL Managed Instance copy-only backup cannot be created for a database encrypted with service-managed Transparent Data Encryption (TDE). Service-managed TDE uses internal key for encryption of data, and that key cannot be exported, so you could not restore the backup anywhere else. Consider using customer-managed TDE instead to be able to create copy-only backups of encrypted databases, but make sure to have encryption key available for later restore.
When Veeam Backup & Replication performs incremental backup, it needs to know what data blocks have changed since the previous job session. To get the list of changed data blocks, Veeam Backup & Replication uses the changed block tracking mechanism, or CBT. CBT increases the speed and efficiency of incremental backups.
Veeam Backup & Replication enables CBT. You can disable it either at the host level or at the job level for troubleshooting purposes. Note that if you choose to run incremental jobs with CBT disabled, the backup window may increase dramatically, as Veeam Backup & Replication will read all VM data to detect what blocks have changed since the last job session.
If a Microsoft Hyper-V VM is registered as a cluster resource, the Veeam CBT driver operates on all cluster nodes that have access to VM disks on the CSV. When a job runs, Veeam Backup & Replication copies CTP files to the temporary folder on the backup proxy used by the backup job.
Keep in mind that CBT data is reset when you perform product upgrade. When you run a backup job for the first time after upgrade, Veeam Backup & Replication will not use changed block tracking. Instead, it will scan the VM image to learn what data blocks have changed.
Assuming a good portion of the data on your MySQL server remains unchanged over time, you can increase the speed and reduce the required storage space for your regular backups by backing up not all the data on the server each time, but only the changes to the data which have taken place over time. In order to that, after making first a full backup that contains all data, you can do one of the following:
