Robocopy problems

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.general (More info?)

I am not sure if this is the right place for this post.
I have a backup stratergy that involves copying files from our NAS server to
an external drive using robocopy.exe
Our exchange server uses ntbackup to create a exchange.bkf file which is
then cpoied over to the NAS box.
When robocopy tries to copy this file to the external drive, it fails with
the following error:
ERROR 1450 (0x000005AA) Copying File
S:\Backups\Exchange\Databases\Exchange.bkf
Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.

There is nothing in the event logs to indicate a problem.
This file is 20gb.
The rest of the robocopy works fine copying over 300gb.
Any ideas why it would be just that particular file that fails?
Files copied immediately before and after are not affected.
This has happened on the previous 2 nights backups and i am having to
manually copy the .bkf file over to the backup drive.
Any help would be great.

    What happens if you use robocopy to manually copy the file over?
    Have you tried using ntbackup to send the backup file to the NAS box
    directly? (and yes, it will take longer to run).

    It works when i copy/paste i haven't tried doing a manual robocopy, i will
    checks tonights backup and if it fails i will try to robocopy manually.
    Copying straight to the backup drive would be a pain, so i hope i can find a
    different solution.
    I'll post my findings over the weekend.
    Thanks.

    Just a couple of thoughts. One is to try a command line file
    splitter/rejoiner. The other is to try XXCOPY:

    OK, the automatic robocopy failed for the past 2 nights with the same error,
    however i have just run a manual robocopy and it has worked fine??!!

    I just don't know why it will work when copird on its own.
    Does robocopy copy multiply objects at once and therefore copying 20gb over
    cause a problem?

    No, shouldn't - can you schedule a job & watch it run?
    What else happens at night?

    I have checked this morning and it seems to have copied the file, however the
    complete backup job is only half done.
    Let me outline what happens overnight.
    at 21.00 the exchange server uses ntbackup to create exchange.bkf
    22.00 SQL server maintenance backups copy backups straight to live data
    drive on NAS unit
    0.00 DC does ntbackup of AD
    0.20 Robocopy from exchange server to live drive on NAS unit
    0.20 Robocopy from DC to live drive on NAS unit

    02.00 Robocopy starts to copy all the volumes on the live drive over to the
    external 1TB Lacie drive attached to the NAS unit.

    We have 11 volumes which hold different types of data, the robocpopy script
    is below:-


    robocopy I:\IT T:\IT /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR /LOG:T:\IBackup_Log.txt
    robocopy B:\Abillity T:\Abillity /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR
    /LOG:T:\BBackup_Log.txt
    robocopy X:\Accounts T:\Accounts /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR
    /LOG:T:\XBackup_Log.txt
    robocopy L:\Archive T:\Archive /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR
    /LOG:T:\LBackup_Log.txt
    robocopy S:\Backups T:\Backups /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR
    /LOG:T:\SBackup_Log.txt
    robocopy N:\Company T:\Company /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR
    /LOG:T:\NBackup_Log.txt
    robocopy V:\SageAudit2004 T:\SageAudit2004 /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR
    /LOG:T:\VBackup_Log.txt
    robocopy Y:\SageCopy T:\SageCopy /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR
    /LOG:T:\YBackup_Log.txt
    robocopy Z:\SageYearEnd T:\SageYearEnd /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR
    /LOG:T:\ZBackup_Log.txt
    robocopy W:\SageYearEnd2004 T:\SageYearEnd2004 /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR
    /LOG:T:\WBackup_Log.txt
    robocopy U:\Users T:\Users /R:0 /W:0 /NFL /NDL /NJH /MIR
    /LOG:T:\UBackup_Log.txt

    I'm still wondering if its not the size of the file thats causing the
    problem, there should be enough system resources as the machine has 4gb of
    ram.

    I think it may have to set up a separate backup job for exchnage

    Yes it was the automated backup! Ah well thats the beauty of IT there's no
    logic to it sometimes.
    I think the company used to use BackupExec before i started, but i am not
    sure why they moved away from it.
    Oh well thanks for all your help, i'll see how it goes.
    Cheers

    So that was through the automated task, not the manual one you set up?
    NTBackup is great, but have you considered something like BackupExec? I use
    NTBackup for teeny tiny shops only, really... BE can back up to a drive as
    well as removable media like tape.
