NDMP restore or Redirect Restore may fail with the following error below if the Buffer size is changed on the Tape drive.  This occurs when the Tape drive performing the NDMP restore is attached to the Backup Exec Media server.  Example: If the Buffer Size on the tape drive was changed from 512K to 1MB and the Block size is set to 512K.

The Backup Exec server service may crash on several media servers at the same time on the same day. The same may then occur at a later date at different intervals in between. A temporary workaround to avoid this is outlined in the technote linked with this issue.

VMWare backups of Windows 2008 R2 servers to Tape, fail with multiple Exception errors for C: drive locations, but other drives are successful. These servers are configured with Italian language locale. The paths in the errors refer to areas of the VM server C: drive, that have Windows symbolic links (i.e. \Start Menu\Programmi, \Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Cronologia, etc).

Severity: Minor functionality
Status: Public fix available
Tech Note: More Information

After adding the 'SMTP Email' settings in the Symantec System Recovery (SSR) graphical user interface (GUI), those settings are lost if the machine is restarted rather than being shutdown.

At the time of writing, the only available workaround is to ensure that the machine is shutdown, instead of being restarted, after adding the SMTP Email settings.
