Unity Connection Backup Error

All:

I am attempting to do a scheduled backup of a Unity Connection 8.6.2 to a network device and am receiving the following error (error is in bold):

----> END Standard Error

Overall backup was 90% complete. Backup of the CONNECTION_DATABASE stopped at 45%. I have never seen this error before.

A previous manual backup to a different device was successful.

Has anyone seen this before? Any thoughts on what might be the cause and resolution? Thanks!

Unity Connection Backup Error

Hello Daniel,

I understand you are getting an error when running a scheduled backup in UCONN 8.6.2 with Mini SFTP from CoreFTP on a Windows 2003 server. Also, manual backups are successful.

\*/ Insight questions

1. Is the SFTP server in a different location separated by a WAN link?

2. Can the issue be reproduced or is it random?

3.Have you reviewed the Guide below for Cisco supported SFTP (Titan, Cygwin, OpenSSH)

Disaster Recovery System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 8.x

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/8x/drs_administration/guide/8xcucdrsag.html

4. Is the backup larger than 1GB?

5. On RTMT (Real Time Monitoring Tool) is there any related system or application logs that might give a clue within the time frame the backup failed?

Finally, the root cause is unlikely to be determined, however the solution is definitely to use one of the three supported SFTP's stated in the link above.

Best Regards,

David Peck.

As an update: The client is using Mini SFTP from CoreFTP on a Windows 2003 server.

Unity Connection Backup Error

Hello Dan,

I was wondering if you were running into any of the "insight questions" posted previously?

Additionally i was wondering if you would happen to have changed your servers hostname recently?

Any further information in your scenario could help bring light to the issue you or other users are affronting.

Best Regards,

Actually, it turned out to be an error with the actual SFTP itself. Had the client change the SFTP server to one of the supported ones and the problem was resolved.
