It looks like the error has to do with some recent "optimization" I
added to the select statement: I had wanted to sort copy jobs by job
size so the big jobs would run first (during the night) so it would be
easier to stop the copy jobs during the day if access was needed to
the lto5 drive.
Still we have many copy jobs failing, but not as many as before as we
now randomize job order more or less. Still I think it's a bit
brain-dead by bacula that it's unable to sort out which storage and
pool a certain job used during the online backup, so all jobs wait on
the general "File" storage instead of using the correct storage
I've heard it on the grapevine that some major changes to copy job
logic and / or disk-based volume mgmt might trickle down into the
community version, any more info on this?
Is there a way I can manually trigger a copy job via text file where I
can provide the job id, storage and read pool to be used?
