Running AcronisInfo may take up to 5 minutes.

Please also consider the following points:

  • The AcronisInfo utility should be run on the machine where the issue occurs. For example, if there is an issue with remote backup, the utility should be run on the machine with Acronis Agent, and not on the machine with Acronis Management Console;
  • If you are not sure from what machine to obtain the information, please run the AcronisInfo utility on all the machines that take part in the operation that fails;
  • Please remember that you may still have to gather some information manually, e.g. SnapAPI logs, MS SQL database logs, etc. If this needs be done, an Acronis Customer Central Representative will notify you;
  • Please check the consistency of the information within the created archive.
