DiRT Scheduler problems

Running Unity 4.04 SR1 and DiRT 1.0 Build 112. Running the backup to a UNC backup location. When running a manual backup all works fine. However, when scheduling a backup nothing happens at the time of the schedule. No event errors are created.

Have restarted the Task Scheduler service and also recreated the Backup Task a number of times. Using the Unityinstall user. Any ideas?

Re: DiRT Scheduler problems

Most likely the account DiRT is running on is having trouble writing to the UNC - did you try the "two hop" backup?

You say there's no event log errors, but are there info messages about the backup starting?

If the backup is not even firing up then perhaps you have a security app like CSA preventing it from starting? I've seen that scenario several times...

Re: DiRT Scheduler problems


I am experiencing something alike to this problem. I have selected a network destination as the storage location and I am using the \\server\Share.

When I run the backup manually it works, but when scheduling it, it fails. I am using the same account for running the backup and working with the latest version of DIRT. I got the following error in the event viewer.


Event Type: Error

Event Source: VBRuntime

Event Category: None

Event ID: 1

Date: 29/05/2006

Time: 12:10:41 PM

User: N/A

Computer: MTLUNITY1


The VB Application identified by the event source logged this Application UnityDisasterRecoveryBACKUP: Thread ID: 1956 ,Logged: Automatic backup failed - could not write to destination path: \\\UnityBackup\


Any Ideas?


Re: DiRT Scheduler problems

I think you 2 might be having 2 different issues. brugmanjorge...I think you need to pick the two hop option like lindborg mentioned. vclawson...did you make sure you checked the box to enable the schedule? The training video even says that's one of the most commonly missed steps. The training videos are GREAT and also cover the two hop method. Check them out.
