Problem

The catalog job may not be generated for a GRT (Granular Recovery Technology) enabled backup job. This can occur with an incremental backup job that runs after the full backup job.

 

Note: Since current Backup Exec versions support Instant-GRT, GRT catalog job is not required for restoring individual items and GRT catalog job is not generated by default.

For details about the Instant-GRT feature, see Backup Exec Administrator’s Guide.

 

Cause

The GRT catalog job runs only once a day even if a backup job runs multiple time in a day.

The catalog job is not generated if the previous catalog job ran within 24 hours.

 

Solution

To generate and run GRT catalog job for every backup jobs, create the following registry value on the Backup Exec server.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\\Symantec\Backup Exec for Windows\Backup Exec\Server
Value Name: ForceSecondaryCatalog
Value Type: DWORD
Value:
  0 - Generate and run catalog job once a day (default)
  1 - Generate and run catalog job every backup

Note: Service restart is not required.
