Scheduled Job error but continue

Job run without error when running from GUI
From Scheduled/Cron, error is in xsibackup.log :

*** Remote directory is locked ***
Lock file: /vmfs/volumes/c8c8b8a5-821a12d9/vm-RDS/20211024130101/RDS/.locked
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The remote repository or replication directory is locked
you may delete it manually to allow new operations
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2021-10-24T13:01:03 | Error code 3682 at file xsibackup.c, line 3682 | Error description: failed to lock the repo /vmfs/volumes/c8c8b8a5-821a12d9/vm-RDS/20211024130101

a first mail is sent with that error , but backup continue
then second mail is sent with success backup without error.
I notice in first mail with the error time is displayed "UTC | Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00" instead real date/time.

Delete the lock file.

/vmfs/volumes/c8c8b8a5-821a12d9/vm-RDS/20211024130101/RDS/.locked

Re: Scheduled Job error but continue

.locked doesn't exist before Scheduled Job so I can't delete it.
Never error with manually started jobs.
I have only error if started from Scheduler.
The error is displayed but backup continue and final report success by mail is sent.

Re: Scheduled Job error but continue

You must be receiving some error that prevents the .lock file from being removed.
Please share the job syntax + the full output so that we can tell you something based on actual data.
