Bug #232: [STICKY] Annoying bugs in softwares used by DC
Bacula Synthetic Backup is stuck
According to resources around the net, we are not alone being unable to use this feature. When running, the task is blocked, waiting for things to happen at the storage level until job timeout happens.
The storage daemon status is:
Running Jobs: Reading: Virtual Full Backup job Elwing-general-data JobId=11638 Volume="" pool="GeneralData-Full" device="FileStorage" (/backup/bacula) Writing: Virtual Full Backup job Elwing-general-data JobId=11638 Volume="" pool="GeneralData-Full" device="FileStorage" (/backup/bacula) spooling=0 despooling=0 despool_wait=0 Files=0 Bytes=0 Bytes/sec=0 FDSocket closed ==== Jobs waiting to reserve a drive: 3603 JobId=11638 device "FileStorage" (/backup/bacula) is busy reading. ==== Device status: Device "FileStorage" (/backup/bacula) is not open. ==== Used Volume status: Vol-GeneralData-Diff-0899 read volume JobId=11638 Vol-GeneralData-Full-0477 read volume JobId=11638 Vol-GeneralData-Incr-0513 read volume JobId=11638 Vol-GeneralData-Incr-0515 read volume JobId=11638 Vol-GeneralData-Incr-0655 read volume JobId=11638 Vol-GeneralData-Incr-0873 read volume JobId=11638
