Error Code [80:36]: No more allocated streams are available.

Article ID: EXDB0006 Backups fail with "No more allocated streams are available" error message if incremental storage policy is used.

Symptom

Backups fail with the following error message:

Error Code 80:36: No more allocated streams are available.

Cause

Under certain circumstances, an incremental backup job should convert to a full backup job before continuing. For example, if you add or remove subclient content, the incremental backup job must convert to a full backup before the incremental backup job can complete.

If the job fails to convert to a full backup job, then the incremental job remains in a pending state.

Resolution

Run a full backup job, and then run a new incremental backup job.
