    All my B2 backups just decided to stop functioning properly. They worked a few days ago, then I noticed the recent runs had failed. I tried running them manually and they mostly failed, but one worked. If I manually run the job multiple times in a row it eventually works. That's not very acceptable for something that should be automatic and fully in the background. Logs contain:

    2019-09-06 23:03:19,502419 [WARN ]: [ CBC ] [ 11 ] Exception (curlpp::LibcurlRuntimeError): Could not resolve host: api002.backblazeb2.com code: 6

    2019-09-06 23:03:19,502632 [WARN ]: [ CBC ] [ 23 ] Go to retry: 1 / 5

    Which doesn't make any sense, because back blaze isn't down, its DNS records are perfectly fine.

    ping api.backblazeb2.com
    PING api.backblazeb2.com ( 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=48 time=26.958 ms

    PING api002.backblazeb2.com ( 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=46 time=27.724 ms

    This is such a frustrating piece of software. Every time I think things are working and I'm ready to install on my other machines, 2 days go by and some new problem appears. CrashPlan was such a simple, seamless, and reliable experience :(

    , sorry to hear about your experience.
    Do you happen to create a ticket with our Customer Support?
    If not, please open a ticket:
    Go to Tools -> Diagnostic -> add a link to this thread -> Send to Support

    It obviously happens because the network is not available. Since it's a mac, how possible that the mac was asleep?
    Do you have anything scheduled at 11 PM? Like other backup jobs, hardware reboot?

    Once you create it, we'll take it from there.

    Just filed the tickets. I think 252736 would be the one for this thread.

    As for turning off, it is a desktop mac that is set to prevent sleep and never put the hard drives to sleep. No scheduled sleeps or restarts on this machine.

    The other backups from this machine are all scheduled for 1am or 2am on different days. This log was from 11pm, so it must have been one of the times I manually ran a backup as part of trying to test this software before going to bed.
