State vs. Status

In Veeam technical documentation, we use state when talking about an overall condition of an entity or a result of some operation with the entity (such as Idle, Running, Disabled, Verified and so on), while status stands for the current condition of an entity with respect to particular circumstances (such as Success, Failed, Warning and so on).

Examples

  1. When the verification process is over, Veeam Backup & Replication removes the delta file of the VM replica snapshot, powers off the VM replica and creates a report on its state.
  2. If the failover plan becomes inconsistent with the virtual environment, you can reset the current plan state. This operation returns the plan to the Disabled state.
  3. If Veeam Backup & Replication fails to copy data for the full backup file during the first backup copy interval, it marks the job session as finished with the Warning status.
  4. For every VM in the list, Veeam Backup & Replication checks the configuration database to obtain the date of the latest backup job session completed with the Success status.
I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
