What causes the backup process to report, "E7106: UT_ER_BACKING_UP: Another process is backing up already"?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: CaliberRM
  • Product Version: All
  • Product Component: backup
  • Platform/OS Version: All

This error message occurs when a backup process starts while another backup process is already running. This can happen if a backup process fails to complete successfully and the process is not terminated. To resolve the problem,

  1. Open windows Task Manager
  2. Click on the Processes Tab
  3. Locate any "dbmgr.exe" or "vbackup.exe" processes that are running
  4. Highlight the "dbmgr.exe" or "vbackup.exe" process
  5. Click "End Process"

When all orphaned "dbmgr.exe" and "vbackup.exe" processes have been terminated, the backup process will now run.
