Pro v7 job fails because destination takes too long to spin up

Post by gn33101 »

I'm running a mirror job to a network destination.
The destination drives sleeps when not in use.

When the Syncback job runs, the drive does not come online fast enough and I always get a 'destination scan failed' error.

Does anybody have a method to query or wake up the network drive before the Syncback job runs?
Or maybe increase the timeout on the destination scan?

Many Thanks!

Hi,
Does anybody have a method to query or wake up the network drive before the Syncback job runs?
You can write a batch/script file that uses the 'Wake ON LAN' event to wake the remote computer and call this in the Program-Before section of the profile run. You can refer to this forum post for more details:

viewtopic.php?f=29&p=46720   
Or maybe increase the timeout on the destination scan?
You can add a short delay under:

Modify > When > Misc > Pause for X seconds option

Please read the help file for more details on this option. With Misc settings page opened, press F1 to open the contextual help.  

Thank you.
