I'm sure you can simply look in the docs...but here's my definition... Catalog = a list of the files/folders/dates/etc backed up WITHIN a backup file that BUE created. Used to do a restore of files typically. If the catalog has expired in the BUE database, then you'll need to run a catalog on the backup media in order to restore files from them. It tells ...

Any backup software can do this. You don't have to write it to tape, you can use dedupe pools, which are common in modern solutions and write it to disk at an off-site server (or on-site server if you have no DR requirements). Backup Exec, NetBackup, Commvault, TSM, Avamar, even the built-in Windows Backup can do this. It was pointed out in chat that I may ...

It sounds like you are looking for instructions on how to use the Recovery Storage Group. This article describes the new Recovery Store Group feature in Exchange Server 2003. By using the Recovery Storage Group feature, you can mount a second copy of an Exchange mailbox store (database) on the same computer as the original mailbox store, or on any ...

Amazon has a pretty good walk-through for setting up the Command Line tools. Those can be run from anything with visibility to the web, so could be an instance, could be a VPS hosted at GoGrid, or your laptop. Doesn't matter. Download and install the Amazon EC2 API Tools, which are java-based and can run with both Linux or Windows. Set up your API key. ...

Move all 2006 files/directories to a backup directory while maintaining file structure. This is obviously the tricky part. The rest you can do as MDMarra points out. From an IT ownership, you'd need a staging area of space to use with a script that grabs the files and folders based on timestamps using something like robocopy with MINAGE/MAXAGE set ...

I would advise seeing whether your backup software can initiate and manage SMTape backups from your secondary site. Even if it can't, you can use it through the Netapp CLI to back up the entire volume. If your backup software supports it, you could use it to do full and incremental backups which would include all snapshots visible on the snapmirror ...

Only you/your_company can determine what is or isn't needed in a backup. If you have the backend storage to support backing up everything, then back it all up...better safe then sorry. If you have limited resources or backup windows, then you'll have to work out a scheme of what files/partitions/databases need backed up, when, and how (full, incremental, ...

The Append Period (APP) and the Overwrite Protection Period (OPP) perform two different tasks. APP defines how long you are prepared to allow appending more jobs to a piece of media once you've started writing to it. It's analogous to asking, "For what time period am I prepared to allow backup sets to be written to the same piece of media"? Setting too long ...

I think you need one SAS SFF-8088 cable per drive... Plug into port A. Port B is for cascading. E.g. In and Out.

Have a 2-server DAG is not considered a "backup", but rather just high availability. You still want backups with Backup Exec or similar product. Having Backup Exec backup all your mailbox databases is most of what you want for restoring disaster recovery. Most people assume DR means you have NO servers, so you'll need a restore of your Active Directory (...

Yes. LTO drives can Write to 1 Generation earlier, and Read 2 Generations earlier. So your LTO3 drive should write 3 and 2 media, and read 1-3 media. But there are speed differences because of the different technology in the drive. In an LTO-3 the drive's head is "smaller". It's not quite as simple as this, but the analogy is mostly true. The smaller LTO-3 ...

Backup Exec does speak MTF. Looking at the actual mtftar source--and issuing the disclaimer that I don't code C, I just limped around faking C a long time ago--I note that the error message in question is the last else if and that the next thing in your error message is a segmentation fault. My instinct--worth what you paid for it--is that the file in ...

You can use the older cartridges in newer drives. It part of the LTO standard. I do it in some environments. However, much of this depends on what you're backing up and your source system. I don't see a big drop between using my LTO2 cartridges in an LTO2 drive versus LTO3. You do. The only big difference here is your autoloader. What's the make/model ...

That looks like a potentially hardware-- disk controller, cabling, controller cache RAM, or system RAM, or me. I'd get that data backed-up ASAP, verify the integrity of the backups, and start looking for hardware problems. (Don't just verify that the backups match the files on disk, either-- actually verify the integrity of the files. ZIP files can be ...

It appears some bits have been flipped in those files' names. Whether this was because of the trojan or not, it's difficult to say. But given the names of the files, it's very unlikely that they have any particular importance, or if they do, they are easily replaced.

The standard network port is just for management. If that is all you have then you need to connect it via SCSI for the actual data. It is also possible that you might have an iscsi bridge card in which case you would need to run the ms iscsi initiator on the machine with backup exec and connect to the device. See the manual here ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/...

No it isn't possible. If you want to target your jobs at particular slots then partition the slots and target the jobs to the slots applicable to those jobs. In my experience BackupExec usually pulls the tapes in order from lowest slot to highest slot. Since all of the tapes are Scratch media it's going to pull the first tape for the first job you run, ...

Microsoft has specific documentation detailing the migration of the certification authority (CA). That documentation describes backup and restore of the CA database and that's the documentation that I'd consider to be the most reliable. Since some of the details of the CA are stored in Active Directory I'd be really dubious of just restoring the machine from ...

From my experience, the following should happen: Restoring Clients: it doesn't matter if they have "old" configuration, as long as their information in the domain are accurate, by information I mean their GUID and hostname, make sure that those are the same and everything else will be fine. Restoring Servers: it depends on what you're restoring, let me ...

The error decode is Bh/4Bh/0Bh = ABORTED_COMMAND/NAK_RECEIVED. I wrote my own tool to decode these and try to give a basic assessment at http://scsi.ev-en.org/ These errors indicate that you have a bad link somewhere, most often it is a bad cable but it can also be a bad port on either side (drive or slot).

Step 1: Run a Import Job on the media/slot to change the "Export Pending" state to "No" to allow the media to be written to for a backup job. If the media still shows up as "Export Pending Yes" after running the import job as mentioned in step 1 then perform steps mentioned in step 2. Step 2: Make a copy of Backup Exec catalogs folder (Just in case the ...

I haven't used BUE in some time now, but... Since you mentioned 10d I almost said "upgrade" but since the tapes are LTO2, the tapes and drive/library's drivers are probably just as antiquated if not more so. Things you can attempt: First try using the BUE drivers for the tape drive, if you aren't already. Make sure you have the latest tape drivers that ...

From my work with BE 2012 so far, it appears the answer is: In the restore UI flow, you cannot see media. Rather, you see backup sets After cataloging a media, you can then, on the storage device view (the tape drive), see the backup sets on that media The important step that is easy to miss: Before pressing Restore, click on the server name the media set ...

You may want to consider using PCI passthrough (VMDirectPath) of the SAS HBA to the specific virtual machine that needs it (the Windows server). This essentially gives the Windows VM exclusive access to the tape drive adapter. Ideally, there's a boost in performance. The VMware guide to accomplish this is located here. It will require a reboot of the host.

The solution to this was that the "Compaq AIT 50 GB tape drive" simply does not seem to be able to handle those "double" capacity tapes "Sony SDX3-100C".

This is going to get closed as we do not allow product recommendations on any stack exchange site (they attract spammers like dirt attracts flies, and they get outdated quickly). That being said, you are spot on when it comes to what kind of disk subsystem DPM needs. DPM expects the disk storage to be available at all times. USB disks are not supported ...

It's been quite some time since I used Backup Exec but hopefully this will help. You should be able to find this information by selecting data to restore (you don't need to actually perform the restore). When you are setting up a restore job, find the data you are looking for (your exchange 2007 mailboxes). You'll have the option to either View by Resource ...

That entirely depends on the programs you have installed and what you want backed up, however with the vast majority of windows programs there are registry settings that won't transfer well, which is why I would recommend doing a full incremental backup if you have the storage space for it, and remember you don't need to back this up to the thick provisioned ...

We handle this by restoring the database to a new recovery DB, and restoring the mailbox to a temp/dummy mailbox (such as "Recovery JLyons" for myself): New-MailboxRestoreRequest -Name Restore001 -SourceDatabase RDB01 -SourceStoreMailbox "Jeremy Lyons" -TargetMailbox "Recovery JLyons" -AllowLegacyDNMismatch Monitor the restore, Ctrl-C to break: while ($...
