As per the design, the screenshot for image verification boot report is triggered after a time gap of 10mins.

If the boot process takes more time, then the screen will be blank; At that point, if a screenshot gets triggered obviously you get to see a blank black screen. It's not an issue, if needed, you can run a quick VM recovery and verify the boot status of the backup job.

And you can also try altering the default timeout value (10mins) by changing attributes "VMSnapshotTimeout" in the 'SGIntegrityCheck.conf' configuration file present in < BDR installed location >\Vembu\VembuBDR\conf.

2019-07-15 08:30:28 -0500 answered a question Why is VemBDR service consuming more Memory?
  • As per the design, when the backups are in progress BDR application will consume up to 50% of the total RAM in order to have better performance; this value is configurable you can change the memory limit by changing the 'MemoryPoolSize' attribute value in < BDRInstallationLocation>/conf/SGFSConf.xml file (value in bytes).

    After changing the attribute value, you need to restart the Vembu BDR service. If the issue persists, then contact our support through, so we can analyze the issues further and provide a timely solution.

  • To get a clear understanding of the error, we are in need of the restore logs, which can be found from the path: < BDR _Home>\log\< BDR _ID> \< Backup Job _Name>; For Example (C:\Program Files\Vembu\VembuBDR\log\ Client _ID\ Backup job _Name); collect the logs and mail to as a zip file.

  • As per the expert's advice, instead of migrating data from one server to another, we would suggest trying the VM Replication feature of Vembu.

2019-06-18 09:00:23 -0500 answered a question Can't Enable Retention On New Backup Job

Retention policy for the backup job exists since the introduction of free-edition of the software. The backup jobs configured within 30 days of the free trial has no restrictions on the retention policies.

After 30 days of free trial you must switch to either paid edition or free edition of the software; if chosen the free edition, then the software automatically hides the retention policies for the physical Windows Server machines such as Windows 2008, Windows 2008R2, etc..; whereas Vembu offers free unlimited features for backup of workstations i.e. Windows desktop OS like Windows 7, Windows 8, etc...

2019-06-17 12:44:24 -0500 answered a question Can't Enable Retention On New Backup Job

As per our understanding, you must have configured backup for a Windows Workstation, on which you could enable the retention policy for the backup job, Or you may have configured the backup for physical Windows Server during the 30-days of product trial.

Vembu offers unlimited free workstation backup. But for the physical Windows Servers, we only support limited features under free edition.

For further understanding, please refer to this Edition Comparison page.
