    We have Datastore configured in HA with Primary and Standby servers (v10.5.1). It had replication issue and finally it was resolved and now Changing Roles(Active/Standby) are working fine. However, when I try to take backup of datastore, it fails for Relational with a following message:-

arcgis data store backup failed. error 'failed to create relational data store export file'

Where as it works fine for TileCache.

When I run listbackups.bat, it shows all the previous manual backups for Relational datastore which I ran with a status 'BackupRunning'(shown below):-

PS C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\DataStore\tools> .\listbackups.bat
Backups in the relational data store:
Backup_Name Status Backup_Time Mode
db_6tzxk-20190606165334426 BackupComplete 2019-06-06 19:53 scheduled
ds2 BackupRunning 2019-09-22 14:44 manual
ds2-bkp BackupRunning 2019-09-22 14:48 manual
db_6tzxk-20190925065300660 BackupRunning 2019-09-25 09:53 manual
db_6tzxk-20190925091315917 BackupRunning 2019-09-25 12:13 manual

Backups located at: 'C:\arcgisdatastore\backup\relational'.

Backups in the tile cache data store:
Backup_Name Status Backup_Time Mode
tcs_oco7oq1r-20190925065024362 BackupComplete 2019-09-25 09:50 manual

Backups located at: 'C:\arcgisdatastore\backup\tilecache'.


When I try to delete the jobs as follows, it doesn't get deleted!

PS C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\DataStore\tools> .\deletebackup.bat db_6tzxk-20190925065300660
You are attempting to delete backup 'db_6tzxk-20190925065300660'. This operation is irreversible.

Do you wish to continue (Yes or No)?Yes

Error encountered: Attempt to delete backup 'db_6tzxk-20190925065300660' is not allowed. You can only delete a manual backup that is not required for future restore.

Any support will be much appreciated..
