ich habe da mal eine Frage bezüglich Backu Exec 2010.
Und zwar haben wir 2 Bandeinheiten mit jeweisl 2 Robotereinheiten.
Wenn ich jetzt jedoch im Backup Exec die Aufträge aufteile, dann werden jedoch immer nur 2 Aufträge gleichzeitig abgearbeitet.
Kann man das irgendwie anpassen?
Zudem würden wir gerne unser Backup Exec im Cluster laufen lassen. Gibt es da ein Best-Practice Paper?
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
If Google translated your post correctly, you've got 2 robotics libraries you're using, and even though you've split your jobs, only 2 are running?
Is this correct?
If so, you need to make sure of the following:
1. You have the correct LEO (Library Expansion Option) licenses...BE "gives" you 1 license for a drive in a library/autoloader. for every other drive you need an LEO. In this case, if you have 2 libraries, each with 2 drives, you'd need 3 licenses.
2. Make sure your jobs are targetting the correct library/drives. If not, then 2 jobs would only end up running while the other library sits idle.
Please let me know if the above is correct or not!
thanks for your quick answer.
Google Translation is cool, isn't it?
I don't know that we need for each robotic unit a licence. I controlled it and have seen that we only got 2 LEO licenses.
So the problem should be fixed soon, when the licenses are integrated.
Thanks you very much.
But have you got an answer for my 2nd question with the clustering option?
Whoops, forgot that one. I've installed it on an MS cluster myself with 11d, but here is the TN below...it will explain how to do this...
Die Frage ist eigentlich, warum Backup Exec geclustert werden soll?
Ich würde das nicht unbedingt empfehlen und es macht eigentlich auch keinen Sinn, da ein Backupserver eigentlich kein System für High Availability ist.
wir müssen es clustern, da wir hier Kundensysteme am laufen haben und diese laut SLA auf die Backups bestehen dürfen.
Somit muss ich sicherstellen können, dass die Backups auch laufen wenn mal der Backup-Server ausfällt.
Macht das nun Sinn?
----- English Version:
we have to cluster our Backup-System, because we got some customersystems running which have an SLA.
That's the reason why I must assure that the backups are running if one backup-server is out of state.
Makes this sense for you?
Could you give some more details to the environment?
Just an example for a setup i would prefer and implemented many times:
1. Central Admin Server in a virtual machine
2. 2 Managed Media Servers as physical machines
3. All storage devices SAN-attached and shared between the Media Servers with San Shared Storage Option
I am not a fan of BE cluster implementations...
Well, if there are only 2 servers, and they're in a cluster, I guess BE is going to have to be installed in a cluster.
Symantec documented it in that link below, so it's all-good then!
yes, I talk about the start and end times of our backup jobs.
In the license Information tab the LEO is listed 3 times.
But on the licence sheet of symantec, there stand that 1 licence key is for 2 LEOs is that possible?
For the other 2 LEOs I got 2 sepperate licence keys.
Thanks for the help.
for my understanding you have 2 libraries with 2 drives each. so you would need only 3 LEOs. but it is possible that 1 license key stands for 2 LEOs, we have 1 licence key for 20 remote agents. so this should be okay.
Does BackupExec use all your drives? Could you check this in the job log please? Are your backup jobs configured to run on a single drive or on the whole library?
I found the problem.
In the device-pool the 4th robotic unit was not entered.
So I think this problem is solved.
But can someone of you help me with the cluster function?
We want a secure backup for our company.
I completely lost it.
Are we talking of 2 Tape Libraries each with 2 tape drives? And how many jobs are scheduled to run at the same time?
Have you already tried to go to the tab "devices" right click on the media server and pause it, wait a bit and then unpause it?
