FS198-W The attempt to backup the log file failed because the backup file "filename" already exists.

The Fileshare Server was unable to backup the log file that is currently in use. As the Fileshare Server is already operational, it cannot close down. The Fileshare Server tries to re-open the old recovery log file and tries to continue writing recovery records to it. This message indicates that overall, the backing up of the recovery log file failed. The Fileshare Server is still operational.


Remove the filename indicated so that the recovery log file can be automatically backed up.

This message can indicate that the correct sequence of backing up data files and removing recovery log files is not being followed.
