  • Backup Exec 11d Load Media

    i am using a ultrium 3 storageworks 920 with backup exec

    when i run test job it runs fine but when i commit the job to run, it runs out of tape and asks to load another tape

    there seems to be no compression at all tape stops backing up at about 260GB

    i am backing up the information store through backup exec and also the edb databases by location

    eg: E:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA\sales.edb ...stm

    do i need to backup both?

    why does test run say ok then run out of media when running the job

    seems a bit strange

    I am using Backup Exec to backup my exchange 2003 server with 2k3 operating system

    yes you need to backup excahnge properly using the exchange asgent.
    if the exchange asgent is doing it poroperly, you shouldn't then need to do filelevel backup as well,although this is good practice to myt mind.

    the test doesn't test to see if there is enough space...

    backup exec should give you an option somewhere within the job to set compression...,
    have your backups EVER been compressed ?
    because if they were, it didn't just decide to change by itself..
