Hello Everyone, I'm in charge of two Windows Server 2012 machines and need a new backup solution. I'm looking at Backup Exec, but I'm a bit confused by how it works. My questions specifically are: - Does it create incremental files ? - If so, can they be consolidated ? - Does this cost extra? Or is it only available in a certain version of Backup Exec?)   Thanks, Jorge

  When an incremental backup takes place, NetBackup needs to determine which files have changed since the “base” backup for that incremental (a previous full or incremental backup depending upon the type of incremental and the previous backups).

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 ...

Currently Symantec requires the services account to have several user rights privledges. It also requires membership of backup operators and domain or local administrators (TECH36718).  This conflicts with best practices, security strategies, and is remiscence  of poorly written apps.  Backup and restore jobs do not warrant nor should they require full Domain ...

Hi, It would be nice to have feature where you can exclude servers or workstations from automatic "discover data to back up" feature either by tcp/ip or name of server/client. This way feature could be kept active and it would anyway not warn about those clients which on purpose will never be included under protection of BE. Thanks..

Once Hotfixes 217591 or 218257 are installed to Backup Exec 2014, either manually or via Live update, the BkupInst2014.htm install log file will incorrectly list them as being 'Backup Exec (TM) 2012 Patch...
