  • Conversion Reason Alert
    Posted: 04-10-2017, 12:38 PM

    Hi,

    I would like to build an Alert that identifies when a transaction log backup has “converted” or “Broken chain” syntax in the Conversion Reason section of the Backup Job Details.  Any guidance would be much appriciated. 

    We are trying to identify when there might be a misconfiguration.  I have built a daily report to identify this behavior, but an alert would be better.

    There are events logged when conversions happen. So one option is to create an alert based on the events. Here are some of the possible events that are logged when the conversions happen. You can do a partial match on these strings instead of creating multiple alerts.

     

    The [^1%s] Backup of [^2%s] is being converted to a Differential Database Backup because [SIMPLE] Recovery Model is enabled.
    1: Backup Type 2: Database

    The [^1%s] Backup of [^2%s] is being converted to a FULL Database Backup because Recovery Model has changed since previous backup.
    1: Backup Type 2: Database

    The [^1%s] Backup of database [^2%s] is converted to full because only FULL backup is supported.
    1: Backup Type 2: Database

    The [^1%s] Backup of [^2%s] is being converted to a Full Database Backup because this is the first backup ever done for this database in this subclient.
    1: Backup Type 2: Database

    The [^1%s] Backup of [^2%s] is being converted to a Full Database Backup because the current database has a newer creation time than the last one backed up.
    1: Backup Type 2: Database

    Database [^1%s] has [^2%d] Transaction Log Backups without a full backup. Having full backups will reduce the chances of data loss if any log backup gets corrupted.
    1: Database 2: threshold number

    The [^1%s] Backup of [^2%s] is being converted to a Full Database Backup because there was a backup done outside of this Product.
    1: Backup Type 2: Database

    The [^1%s] Backup of [^2%s] is being converted to a Full Database Backup because subclient content had been changed.
    1: Backup Type 2: Database

    The [^1%s] Backup of database [^2%s] is converted to full because there was a PIT/TM restore done for this database.
    1: Backup Type 2: Database

    The [^1%s] Backup of database [^2%s] is converted to full because SYSTEM DATABASE was restored.
    1: Backup Type 2: Database

    The [^1%s] Backup of [^2%s] is being converted to a Full Database Backup because Next Full Backup Flag is enabled due to file/ file group content changes.
    1: Backup Type 2: Database

    ameykarandikar,

    Thank you very much.  I had no idea where this type of information might reside in the first place.
