I have x64 windows 2008 R2 domain controller running on a VM with Symantec Backup Exec Remote Agent Utility installed.
Every night when backups run my nagios warns me that CPU utilization is 96% for about 3-4 hours while the backup is running. The offending process is of course beremote.exe. Symantec should only be backing up active directory and group policy from this server and I also have another domain controller with identical specs where beremote.exe does not kill the CPU in this manner.
Does anybody know of a hotfix for this particular issue? The only one I have found only applies to server 2003. I have also ensured that Backupexec is completely updated. Any ideas?
Updating the Symantec Remote Client to the latest version did not fix this issue.
