Automatic Job Retries
If a backup job is launched according to a schedule and fails for any reason, Veeam Agent will automatically retry such backup job up to 3 times with an interval of 10 minutes. For example, Veeam Agent will launch a backup job retry if the backup repository is not available or connection to the repository is interrupted during backup.
Starting from version 2.1, if you use the Server edition of Veeam Agent, you can modify the default settings for backup job retries in the backup job wizard. For more information, see Scheduling Settings in Server Edition.
In case the backup job fails, Veeam Agent creates a new session for this backup job with the Pending status. The new session for the backup job retry will start in about 10 minutes.
Consider the following about automatic job retries:
- Veeam Agent will not perform a backup job retry if the backup job ended with the Success or Warning status.
- If a backup job fails because of an interrupted connection to the backup repository, Veeam Agent will retry the backup job and attempt to continue the data transfer that was started before the backup job failed from the point at which it was interrupted. For more information, see Resume Backup.
- [For object storage repositories] Veeam Agent will launch a backup job retry if during the backup job session, a backup health check detects corrupted data in the backup. In case the backup job was run on a schedule, Veeam Agent will retry such backup job up to 3 times. Veeam Agent will retry the backup job only once if the backup job was launched manually. For more information, see Health Check for Object Storage.
