The solution from Autotype1

The solution from Autotype1 will not help you JvdPoel. However, Autoype1 said right, you don't need to have separate jobs. 

On your original problem: "However, deselecting this folder (mount point) causes the SDR indicator to go OFF from green to grey. 

So no .DR file is created."

Actually, this deselection has to be made from under "Lotus Domino Databases" node and not the NTFS (e.g. C:\) node. If you expand "Lotus Domino Databases" till you find the mount folder for which you are getting failure, and deselect it, your issue shall resolve.

Deselecting anything from under "Lotus Domino Databases" node will not make the SDR indicator go away as it doesn't affect SDR.

Hope this helps.

In SEP, configure exceptions

In SEP, configure exceptions for Backup Exec Install folder and all the services.

Hi, you can exclude this

Hi, you can exclude this folder from your backup. 

Backup Exec Domino Agent doesn't support mount points and hence this error:

Hi,

We are having the exact same problem when backing up our Lotus Domino server.

However, deselecting this folder (mount point) causes the SDR indicator to go OFF from green to grey.
So no .DR file is created.

All SEP exceptions are in place, configured this together with Symantec support but until
now no solution on how to create a SDR complete backup with the folder selected.

On a sidenote, I was also told that we are backing up our Domino server incorrectly.
At the moment we just have everything selected C,D,E,...partition + Lotus Domino DB's + System State.

The correct way should be to create 2 jobs, 1 that backs up the C-partition + system state and
another job with only Lotus Domino Databases selected, can anyone confirm this ?

 

 

 

Never heard of having to run

Never heard of having to run seperate jobs. We've been using the agent for years and frequently restore .NSF databases.

To the OP:

I have some notes from way back when we were having problems with the Domino agent. ** I don't know what the consequences are of changes these values ** they were for a different problem which was related to communication with the agent, but they might help.

1. Stop the Backup Exec remote agent service on the Domino server
2. Go into the registry and browse to the following path:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Backup Exec for Windows\Backup Exec\Engine\DOMINO
3. Change the following 2 DWORD values:
    Enable Change Journal = 0
    Enable Notes Database Filtering = 0
4. Close the registry
5. Browse to C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\RAWS\logs and delete NOTESDB*.UCJ files
6. Restart the Backup Exec remote agent service.

Dear Saurabh

Dear Saurabh Gupta,

Deselecting the folder from under the Lotus Domino databases fixed my issue.  The backup succeeded.  Been working with Symantec support now for 2 weeks and not once did this person suggest to deselect it at that location.  He only suggested to deselect it under the NTFS part.  Thank you!!

Happy to hear that. You may
