When backing up to a NAS, i was under the assumption that BUE could not manage the media sets properly once they had expired, due to no Windows Remote Agent installed like on a Windows OS
I have a few clients, which have the NAS setup, and seems to work, and we have another who say's he has to manually remove the expired sets to prevent filling up
Sometines i manually expire them (and/or erase job) before backup just incase, but if i dont for any reason it seems ok. I cant really tell unless i make a note, or screen shot of the expired ones, and see if they get deleted
Version is backup Exec 2010 (old i know) not sure if that makes difference.
Can anyone advise
Backup Exec will manage the Media Sets when it comes to B2Ds. However, BE 2010 didn't do it very well. It has become a lot better on newer versions.
Something to look into is an upgrade, if at all possible.
