Backup from NAS to LTO with Backup Exec 2011

Hello,

we have a little Problem with "Backup Exec 2011"

We have a NAS an our Network and we want to copy every friday all date from the NAS Folder to a LTO-Tape. We create an Job on Backup Exex and it works but every time if the task finished we get the message" V79-57344-3844 The Media- Server was unable to contact the local remote Agent..." Of course there is no local remote agent on the NAS! It is only a NAS. But what is wrong, is there a possibility to remove or block the message? The Backup is okay but we dont want to see this message!

has anyone an idea?

Refer this technote

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH139630 : NDMP Backups fail with “Access Denied” or “The media server could not connect to the remote computer” errors if the option “Display progress indicators for backup” is selected under Tools/Options.

 

Thanks,

Hi,

 

If your NAS can do iSCSI it's worth looking into it. I am busy with this currently with Iomega NAS's, and it's allowing me to present LUNs to my backup servers and span the volumes.

Once done I can backup from the locallly mounted drive with no issues like you normally get above.

 

Thanks!

You can safely ignore this message for a NAS, since you indeed, cannot install a RAWS. 

The way it is written, BackupExec will always check for a RAWS, you cannot turn this off
