    Trying to backup on an LTO2 drive

    Dear all

    I am trying to backup some files, actually everything, on an LTO2 tape drive on a Fujitsu server running Windows 2003 R2 OS . I am using NTBackup and the run command string of the scheduled job is the below:


    C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntbackup.exe backup "@C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\NTBackup\data\full backup.bks" /n "FULL DATA BACKUP" /d "FULL DATA BACKUP" /v:no /r:no /rs:no /hcn /m normal /j "full backup" /l:s /p "LTO Ultrium"


    contents of the full backup.bks file :

    C:\
    D:\
    SystemState


    Now whenever the time comes to run the backup, nothing happens!! What might be wrong? it worked once or twice with the same job and tapes and now its not working anymore. The backup looks as if it is starting and then goes off immediately. It does this as well even if run manually...pls help

    Thanks

      Hi,

      First you need to determine weather it is a problem with Ntbackup.exe or the tape drive itself.

      Any events logged regarding the failure?
      Checked the cables?any errors on the drive itself? Is the backup file increased? to name a few checks.

      Please post back with what have you troubleshooted so far.
