I'm having a problem where our backup server refuses to back up nsf files, it just skips over them as if they aren't there. I've setup debug on the Domino agent and have included a portion on the file created
When the job skips the nsf files, does it fail or succeeds? If it fails, what is the error message that you receive in the job log? Is the Lotus server a remote server? What is the v ersion of Lotus? Is it a partitoned server?
Refer to the following technotes which might help in resoving the problem:
