DB not backing up

Matthew Kitchin Oct 11, 2016 03:48PM CDT

I'm loving Minion backup so far, but I'm just now trying it on our primary mission critical instance. I have tested Minion Backup on a variety of SQL servers at our office, and everything looks great. I tried to roll out on our most mission critical server, and no luck. It is a 3 node Windows 2012 R2 Cluster with Sql 2012 R2. The instance I'm trying to back up has a sing DB in full recovery. I have it set to to a full daily and logs every 10 minutes. The system DBs are backing up fine, but the user DB never backs up. I looked in the Minion.BackupLog table, and it agrees it was skipped. I can't find any detail as to why it was skipped. Any tips on where I can look to find out why? The logs seem to show it sees the DB, but no attempts at a backup. Can you help me?
