We're evaluating Backup Exec for Windows Servers 10d, but we're mainly interested in the IDR option. I have three machines involved in this scenario: 1) Our media server, 2) Our terminal server, and 3) our server that represents an exact replica of our terminal server. The goal is to use IDR to make a IDR backup set of our terminal server and restore it to the replica. I've made the backup set of the terminal server, created the IDR diskettes and I've gotten to the point where I can see the backup sets for Drive C: and System State that are to be restored. I then get the Restoring Data Screen with the "Status is Running", but then I get a Job Failed window with error text stating:
The job failed with the following error: Authentication failed on connection to the server. Make sure that the user account has the appropriate permissions and that the password was typed correctly.
When I check the job history on the media server it says
Error category : Security Errors Error : e000fe29 - Authentication failed on connection to the server. Make sure that the user account has the appropriate permissions and that the password was typed correctly.
I found another post on this board http://forums.veritas.com/discussions/message.jspa?messageID=4385233
related to this issue and tried the recommended steps of re-entering the service credentials and stopping and starting the services. No go. I don't see any help in the administrator's guide. We'd really like to go with Backup Exec but if we can't get the IDR to function we more than likely won't choose it as a solution.
