System HW configuration: Supermicro Server, 2x Intel Xeon CPU, 4GB RAM, RAID-5 SAS disks
System SW configuration: Windows 2003 Server SP2 + Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 8.0 Server Edition (Version: 184.108.40.206563) + Symantec Antivirus version 10.1.7.7000
When i do a full backup of my E drive (contains documents and roaming profiles of about 60 users) the back-up starts but after 42% the server freeze's.
42% thats about 42GB of 120GB that is back-upped. I use fast compression and i back-up to a external server (freenas) through the network.
The network activity drops and then it freezes. (see picture)
I don't get any errors in my eventviewer.
The log file under C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Backup Exec System Recovery\Logs\ Backup Exec System Recovery.log.txt doesn't mention anything special.
Here are the last lines:
3/10/2009 16:32:31 Medium Priority Notice: Info 6C8F0428: Backup Exec System Recovery service stopped. 0x00 (Backup Exec System Recovery)

Before i manually start the back-up, I restarted the Backup Exec System Recovery service, after that i run the Back-up and after about one houre the server freeze's (see picture above). At 18h25 i restarted the server.
When the server freeze's i can ping the server but i get some timeout's (see picture). http://www.vti-roeselare.be/Steven/Symantec/pingserver.jpg
What did i try:
Back-up to USB drive instead of back-up to external network server (freenas) > NO Luck
Back-up the drive into smaller files (max 20GB) > NO Luck
Disabled Verify image after back-up > NO Luck
I can download the latest release of BESR, 8.5. I've i update to that version could that help my problem?
Anybody that can help me?
