I am doing a PoC for a client on Lotus Domino 9.1 server . We have installed backup exec 2015 on a Server with WS2012 which the Domino 9 application.
The customer has another standby server with Domino 9. The idea is to backup all mail files once in a day and dump the backup to the standby server.
1. I have run Full backup of Lotus Domino databases i.e. .nsf files which have customers mail files for various users.
This backup was restored to the standby server. It works fine.
2. Now I want to run an incremental or Differential backup of the Domino Databases. But I found that whenever incremental backup is run, it backs up all databases fully again. I have used the option 'reset archive bit'.
The customer's mail databases size is about 600GB and everyday about 2-3 GBs of mails arrive. Hence with incremental backup it should do a backup of about 2/3GB only. But that is not happenning.
We are doing the backup on an RDX drive with network interface. It is connected with iscsi protocol.
The backup Exec is running on the same server on which Lotus Domino is installed.
Any suggestions about what could be wrong and what settings need to be used?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The TN below is for an older version of Backup Exec, but take a look through it and see if you can conform to what it is stating is required to do proper backups of Lotus Domino:
I would also make sure that the version of Domino you're using is supported by BE 2014:
