CPS Data Backup to Tape


dear all,
we backup our brunch offices with CPS to a central backup server. this job works nice, so we have "snapshots" from the brunchoffice date in the central location.
if i try to backup this snapshots, the data looks like a copy of the brunch office data, the backup exec only backups 5.180byte.
no data & no error
any idea whats wrong why i could not backup  the CPS data?
any experience to backup CPS data to tape with BackupExec 12.5?

The correct way to back up a

The correct way to back up a Continuous Protection Server (CPS) installation with Backup Exec is through the CPS agent icon within the selection list of the backup job.

To have a full backup of the Continuous Protection Server, your backup should include:

  • System Drivers
  • CPS Databases
  • Protected Resources
  • Shadow Copy Components

A selection list showing the Continuous Protection Server Backup Options is shown below: (Figure 1)

Figure 1

 


With these options selected and backed up successfully,  a CPS Server can be recovered to the state of the last backup.

Note: CPS backups will be run with the Advanced Open File Option (AOFO) using the Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) by default.
