I am currently running BE15 on MS server 2012 R2 and with little experience would like to ask is there a way to backup all of the settings and jobs within the Job Monitor, just in case I loose BE15 due to a crash/hard drive failure.
Thanks in advance for your time.
The Backup Exec SQL database BEDB holds all the jobs, history, and most of the settings.
Backup Exec backs this up internally every day to \Backup Exec\Data\bedb.bak.
The other important part is the \Catalogs folder. This is all your restore selections to restore data without re-catalog in case of a disaster.
Some customer copy the bedb.bak and catalogs to a alternate location using a batch file or Windows Task schedular. There are different ways to protect the \Data and \Catalogs folders.
The Catalogs folder can be large in size.
SDR can also protect the media server.
