Risks usually come when technology is chosen without taking into consideration its limitations and, even more ...

Backup Exec 2012 and 2014 offer possibilities to import holidays into the configuration in order to exclude those days from having backup jobs run. Unfortunately, there's no possibility to use wildcards in the import files, which makes the creation of the import file quite difficult. Therefore we've created a tool, that provides a GUI to create such import files. As of today, the tool able to ...

Please could the installation process for AIX be looked into. The client install currently takes up around 2.7Gb which accross a large estate of 600 AIX hosts means an additional 1.6Tb of data just for the install.
