With Autodesk Vault scripted to run a full backup on the weekends and an incremental backup for new changes only, during the week, the incremental backup fails to run with an error 189.
From a sample incremental backup log:
'C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Vault Server 2023\ADMS Console\Connectivity.ADMSConsole.exe' returned the exit code of: 0.
6/23/2022 11:00:09 PM Connectivity.ClientShared.VaultManager.ServiceException: IncBackupInEligibleForAdminDataDirty  ---> Connectivity.Core.Exceptions.CoreException: IncBackupInEligibleForAdminDataDirty 
This Vault Server error 189 is described in the VaultSDK.chm help file on the Vault Server host that is created when the Software Development Kit (SDK) is installed from the installation source that defaults to here when the Vault Server is installed (substitute your Vault version for ‘2023’):
Once the SDK is installed, the help file is located here on the Vault server host:
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Autodesk Vault 2023 SDK\docs\VaultSDK.chm
In the Server Error Codes section, error 189 is described as: IncBackupInEligibleForAdminDataDirty
That is followed with further information: A Vault or Library has been added or removed. This change is not supported by an Incremental Backup.
When this message appears, then a vault full backup will be needed before another incremental backup can complete.
The reason is that an incremental backup cannot record if a database is added or removed and therefore cannot restore the new or missing database.
