Hi, after more than 1 week without errors, i started to test be2014 against Exchange 2013 DAG. The time and amount of backup done by be2014 looks the same, but it failed with V-79-57344-4617. Mentioned staging temporary data not on ntfs or backup-to-disk-folder, but i tried backup to tape. See the attached printscreen.

Today I would like to share a few thoughts about the hidden risks there are when we make decisions or choose new types of technology.

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 ...

I had a situation with the NBU *nix install scripts not recognizing the cluster, and it complicated the situation that they don´t show cluster information until very late in the install/upgrade process.

Hi,   I'm in the middle of upgrading between BackupExec 2012 and Backup Exec 2014, and from 32bit to 64bit.

But that's not what your technical support tells me. No, I have to spend a solid ...
