Reconciling a recovery point network destination for an imported backup job

When you bring existing installations of Backup Exec System Recovery 8.x or 7.0 under backup management, any user-defined backup jobs on those client computers are automatically imported into the console. If those jobs specified a network destination for recovery points, you must reconcile each destination in the console. It ensures that the backup jobs that use the network share can continue to function as usual. It also ensures that you can still store the recovery points on the specified network share.

To reconcile a recovery point network destination, you need to specify the correct network credentials. Or, you can choose to delete the destination and any backup jobs that are associated with it. You can then assign a new backup job to the client computer.

Any destinations that you need to reconcile are displayed each time you start the console.

To reconcile a recovery point network destination for an imported backup job

  1. On the Manage page, in the right pane, click the Destinations tab.

    In the table, network destinations that require reconciliation are listed as Action Required under the column headings Network User and Password.

  2. On the Tasks menu, click Destinations Needing Credentials.

    You can use the Filter bar above the table to refine or organize the displayed results.

  3. Select one or more paths that need credentials.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • To remove the destination and any backup jobs that are associated with it, click Delete > Yes.

    • To specify the credentials to the network destination, click Edit, and then continue with the next step.

      Notice that you cannot edit the path. To edit the path, you need to delete this destination instead, and then define a new one.

  5. In the network credentials group box, type the user name and password for logging on to the network storage location.

  6. To verify that the specified user name and password to the network location are valid, you can check Validate network location.

    If you selected two or more destinations in step 3 to edit at the same time, Validate network location is not available.

  7. If necessary, edit the Backup Exec Retrieve indexing settings.

    If you selected two or more destinations in step 3 to edit at the same time, Backup Exec Retrieve indexing settings are not available.

  8. Click OK.
