Size limit exceeded - what does it mean?

Hi Guys, I got the below line as the only line in a log file of an Exchange VSS backup:

==>> Size limit exceeded, unable to transmit file. <<==

I'm just confused as ti whether it's a log file error (as in the log file is too big) or if this size limit is the cause of the failed backup - which failed because: "avtar FATAL <5155>: Backup aborted due to earlier errors. No backup created on the server."

Thanks

Re: Size limit exceeded - what does it mean?

Hi,

When browsing a log in the activity monitor if the contents of the log exceed some MBs the message is truncated with that "size limit exceeded" message. To work around this limitation, get the logs from the client computer.

This message is not probably related with backup issue since it is just a MCS limitation, so please take a look on client side and grab the logs from there for further analysis.

Regards

Arturo

I have the same issue too with avtar fatal error 5155. With regards to the window logs, is this the normal windows logs under the windows volume?

Re: Size limit exceeded - what does it mean?

Hi to all. I have the same message with a windows file system backup job that "completes w/Excepion(s). This is the message:

Size limit exceeded, unable to transmit file. Combined logs exceed size limit of 1048576 bytes. It may be possible to include all logs in exported logs or a support bundle. <<==

 But checked to restore a file and the restore is OK. So i think there is nothing to worrie about.
