I'm Using Backup Exec 2015. I have virtual environment consisted of 10 linux servers hosted on ESXi 6.0.0 All Servers are Linux Based OS. All of the server are backed up in one job.
The full backup size was around 650 GB and everything was fine.
two weeks ago, there were power failure on the UPS and the servers shutdown unexpectedly. The BE was running differential job at the time. When I started the servers and made sure that all BE agents are running, the differential job went ok ( in term of size ) but the full backup now is 1.9 TB ( total size of all disks ).
In addition the following exception begin to appear on all servers ( On full and Differential ):
V-79-40960-38531 - During Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) operations, the necessary boot configuration files could not be loaded.
Backups that were enabled for GRT may not be available for restore.
I installed BE Feature pack 3 and I tried all solutions suggested on this community like shutdown and restart the servers, backup servers while they are shutdown, uninstall BE agent and reinstall it, delete the job and recreate it, delete the server from BE and add it.... Still the same problem ( 1.9 TB instead of 650 GB ) on full backup. This issue consumes time and space.
Any Help Is Appriciated
Solved! Go to Solution.
Resetting the CBT within each VM solved the backup space. However, the warning issue has not been solved yet and I used the instructions in the following article: https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.TECH21700
But, before the the UPS incident, there were no warnings. Im using Oracle Enterprise Linux 7.1
Moreover, my web server (ubuntu 15 ) with enabled GRT has no such warning.
Is there certain types of Linux based OS where GRT works properly. Is there any tool or upgrade should be installed in order to enable GRT on OEL (Oracle Enterprise Linux ) ??????

GRT options do not work for non-Windows systems. For non-Windows systems, its a restore of the complete VM only. If you want file-folder level restores as well, then the Linux VMs have to backed up (as physical) separately using the Remote Agent for Linux.
