Looking for some guidance on the Virtual Machine validator component of the Symantec Backup Exec Management Plug-in for VMware.
I've installed the plug-in and an instance of vSphere client on our third media server, typically used for testing and restores.
The plug-in runs ok with the system logon account and CASO server details,
It displays the tab with last backup success / failure details no problem.
But when run the validator doesn't display any backup sets to test.
Any ideas as to why this would be?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Do you have VM Workstation 7.0 or later installed ?
Secondly, validation works only for GRT-enabled FULL backups only.
Would recommend a read @ this guide, specifically the chapter on validation - https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.DOC4674.html
Yes, VMware workstation 11 is installed and I'm attempting to validate full grt-enabled backups which show as successful.
Backup Exec server selection is the CASO server.
In all cases "Valid backup sets for last 3 months are not available" is displayed, which is not true.
Yes. I've reviewed the user guide, no troubleshooting section in there...
