    Re: Reminiscing

    cruachan,
    no one would disagree with you about the overall bloat that occurs with new releases in software editions, but there is one exception… and that is Backup Exec’s latest version Backup Exec 2014. worth a look and definitely a comparison.
    I am not at all trying to sell you anything. Just saying…

    in reply to: Backup Exec 10 job takes age to complete #387162

    Re: Backup Exec 10 job takes age to complete

    There are a few things that could cause this…

    Check the Window Event Logs (system and application) for errors, make sure that there aren’t any other maintanance jobs getting in the way.

    also, the job/policy could be corrupt. Try recreating them.

    Re: The backup operation that started at "" has failed with following error code ‘215

    At this point I recommend contacting Microsoft since this also occurs in other backups besides Backup Exec.

    Re: The backup operation that started at "" has failed with following error code ‘215

    Hello, just saw this post and was wondering if this was still an issue? also Event ID 5. errors usually indicates SCSI parity errors. This error can be caused by a faulty SCSI card or a faulty SCSI termination.

    in reply to: Backup exchange 2003 through backup folder #387159

    Re: Backup exchange 2003 through backup folder

    Is the Exchange server a virtual server? What error are you getting when you attempt the GRT job?
    Just for testing purposes does the GRT backup work if done on a local drive?

    Use the B2D test tool to see what could be going on.
    This should be located at C:Program FilesSymantecBackup Exec B2Dtest.exe.
    Save the B2DTest_32.exe (32 bit) or B2DTest_64.exe (64 bit), to any Backup Exec media server that has access to the target device and run it from a command prompt window
    The tool moves about 4GB of pseudo data back and forth from the device up to 4 times, so please be aware that it may take some time to complete and may impact the performance of a production environment.

    Please post the results.

    Re: VPN (Firewall ) Recommendations Needed (Using Backup Exec 2012)

    Yes, its doubtful the firewalls have anything to do with this.
    If you have to back up over a Wan I’d go with Backup Exec.Cloud.

    With deduplication transfer speeds can be as low as 200MB/minute. Deduplication is more of a space oriented solution.
    Dedupe is single threaded which means it can only do one job at a time and nothing else can run to that until the current job is done. which can make jobs queue up over the WAN
    with the cloud I believe you can run multiple jobs at once like a regular B2D.

    in reply to: BackupExec always restore DB in Dirty Shutdown state #387157

    Re: BackupExec always restore DB in Dirty Shutdown state

    In your restore make select
    Purge existing data and restore only the database and transaction logs from the backup sets
    Commit after restore completes (Optional – This will commit the logs to the database if selected)
    “If Commit after restore completes is selected for the restore

    job, the log and patch files in the temporary location are
    applied to the database, and then the current log files are
    applied. After the restore is complete, the log and patch files
    are automatically deleted from the temporary location
    (including any subdirectories).”

    Re: Backing up EX 2010 on Backup Exec 2010 that sits on a 32 bit server. Need help th

    if you install Backup Exec 2012 on a virtual machine and want to use the tape library located on the physical server here is a few of the requirements.

    Backup devices that are connected to the host can be connected to the virtual machine using SCSI Pass Through, however there are certain limitations that need to be considered:

    · The tape hardware must be connected to a VMWare-supported Adaptec SCSI controller.
    · The tape hardware must be SCSI ID addressed and cannot be LUN addressed.
    · The virtual and physical SCSI Id’s must match each other.
    · Fiber connected tape devices are not supported.
    · Tape devices cannot be connected to RAID controllers.
    · Tape devices should not share a BUS with any other non-tape device, and should be given their own dedicated SCSI controller.
    · The SCSI controller for the guest VM should be configured as a LSI Logic SCSI card and not the BUS logic card.
    · BUS sharing must be disabled.

    This type of connection is an alternative configuration. which means there is no obligation by Symantec to provide support.
