  • Job Completed with Exceptions

    hi all

    i have a backup question
    i backup my server with backup exec
    the advance open file is not used
    so i here and there get an "Job Completed with Exceptions"
    some of those files and folders i think i can restore succesfull without them.

    like: software distribution
    and can i excluse the update folders like - $NtUninstallKB900725$

    thanks all

    This is not a Backup Exec forum so you're in the wrong place to begin with. Because of this, I will give you limited answers:

    >> so i here and there get an "Job Completed with Exceptions"

    This normally happens when a file is open by a user during the backup process. The file has not been backed up and will not be restored.

    >> and can i excluse the update folders like - $NtUninstallKB900725$

    Yes.

    In BEW, you can click on the error messages which will take you to the Symantec web site to give you the required fix. The Symantec web site has a dedicated forum for BEW

      Why don't you use the AOFO?

        Well JD, now that the thread is in the appropriate forum maybe you could become more unlimited with your answers.

          Actually, BigB, I think that JDMils' answer is all that it is.
          When AOFO is not used, any opened file on the volume that is backed up will give the stated warning. Period.
          BTW, joeqwerty, I am not using AOFO too, because it's price: for the 11d version, it's more than $800. I got used to backing up without it... Of course, I am not advising anyone not to use it... I just state that I can understand why the option is not available.

            hi all for your answer

            as sorinso say its the price for not using aofo
            i probably didnt ask the question right beacuse this wasnt a backup question.

            i wanted to know what will consider a good backup.
            and i am talking only about the system.
            not the data or applications and no operating system diffrences.

            so do i have a good system backup even without:
            $NtUninstallKB900725$ and folders like
            and without the software distribution folder and especially the EventCache folder

            thanks

              I think I understand what you're asking now. BEW is good at backing up your data, like Office, SQL, Exchange, etc.

              But if you want to backup your server's OS, then you need to do more (and spend more $$$). You would have to look into clustering your servers, mirroring/stripping disks, etc.

              On the cheap, get a copy of Ghost or True Image and schedule the app to image your server's OS to a seperate location. Be careful tho as this scenario will only work efficiently if your server dies and you restore the image to the exact same hardware. We all know what happens to XP when you change the hardware in a computer.....nothing, it crashes.

              Note: At this point my Windows session crashed and I had to retype this post over before I got to save it....is this a sign?

              If you want flexibility, invest in VMWare. You can run multiple servers on one host and if the host dies in any way, just move the VMWare host app to new harware and you're off and running again and your VM images will be none the wiser.

              Oh, and biggles...."Actually, BigB, I think that JDMils' answer is all that it is." hehehehe. You know I look forward to seeing your avatar right below my posts

                And just so you isn't disappointed, here it is.

                Don't forget to mention Ghosting/Imaging a DC is NOT a real good option.
