Inquiry Backup Exec Simultaneously Performing Recovery and Backup

Is it possible to run a recovery and the backup job run at the sametime?

What if an on-going recovery and the backup schedule run will the backup schedule fail?

 

Regards,

  • It depends on whether they are using the same resources. If the recovery job is using the tape drive, the backup job will have to wait for it to finish. When the wait time for the backup job is exceeded, it will fail.

      Hi pkh,

       

      Thanks,

      But what if for sample we had a backup plan for server1 1week full and daily incremental during 11:00PM, we run recovery from server1 at 10:00 am but still recovering until 11:00Pm will the backup job fail?

        In this situation, shouldn't you have stopped the backup when the recovery starts?
