I just thought I would post here before logging a support call for this old chestnut, in-case someone knows of a recent solution
I have seen this in BE2010 R3 as well as BE2012
I have a daily media set that has a OPP of 28 days...
BE2012 with all but SP1 hotfixes applied
So, here I have a media set with the OPP set to 12 hours and the APP set to 1 day
I have a backup job that runs daily and only 1 tape in the media set.
So effectively I am reusing the same tape each day, we...
OK , is this by design or a bug?
I make a group up of a physical server and a vCenter
I then choose to run a backup of that group
There is no way in the backup options I can select transport mode, GRT etc
The virtual machines subsection is missing
This is a good one!
Running BE2010 R3 all hotfixes (according to live update)
Vcenter 4.1.0 258902
ESXi 4.1.0 502767
2003 SP2 32 bit
2003 R2 SP2 64 Bit
VM Tools 8.3.12
In the BE log get the "usual error"
"The job failed with the following err...
Hope someone could give this the once over to see if my logic is flawed
Policy 1 - 3 servers backup VM Image to disk and duplicate to tape.
Policy 2 - 10 servers backup VM Image to tape
Policy 3 - 3 servers, backup VM Ima...
As stated above a virtual media server is not supported.
A physical media server is. The best way to do D2D2T is to have a physical server with local SATA storage, with HBAs to the SAN and Tape Drive.
Never use the same SAN for backing up data from...
I would suspect that the server or switch ports speeds are not matched and one is at half duplex and one is at full duplex.
what is the speed like if you copy a file from a VM on one host to the media server?
Choose a tape that is physically in your library that you want to use (e.g. LTO0002)
Go into the media set for that tape.
Right click on that tape and select " associate media set".
Assign that tape to the "scratch media: media set.
Go to the alert ...
Problem 1: No not Feb. :) There can be 4 or more tapes in the library shown as blue and overwriteable for that media set. The OPP is set to 4 weeks (28 days) and the tapes actually return from the vault after a month. So there are a number of overwr...
Sounds like you have a tape library.
Some tape libraries can be configured indepenent of backup exec to clean on an error
That is how our IBM tape libraries are configured
Are you using the same brand tape as your tape library? I have seen HP tapes (...
