We know Backup Exec can protect software and data. But the question is when we backup everything with Backup Exec, How we can trust this software and rely everything on it?
I mean what is the solution for protecting Backup Exec from failures, crashing, loss of data, loss of catalogs and Database currupt?
Shall we take backup from Backup Exec again manualy or with other Backup Exec or some other Backup software installation?
Suppose you backuped everything and your Backup Exec software is corrupted for some reason which cannot be used to reach your backup data and restore them! This whould be a complete disaster!!!
Anybody has information about it?
Once you have your backup fully function you will not be changing things frequently in the Backup Exec like jobs and policies.
The best way in this case is to backup the DATA and Catalog folder manually located at c:\program files \symantec\backupexec.
You have to stop all the BE services and bkupexecsql service in the services. Once stopped you can take the backup of data and catalog folder.
In case of disaster you have to just install the same version of BE again and stop all the BE services and bkupexecsql service and replace the DATA and CATALOG folder from what you had backed up before.
Start all the BE services and your BE should be up and running the way it was before.
