Hello, i write this blog for my own record, and for symantec.
I was asked to write a summary of my issues, after i tried to give back my dedupe licenses. So here we go.
1.) GRT Backups work only once and then fails with "An error occurred in the PDVFS driver: PdvfsOpendir: failed errno=2"
2.) Restore of Single Files only works with the fast "Use Fast File Restore" Option switched off. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Backup Exec For Windows\Backup Exec\Engine\Tape Format
3.) after a longer time of "successful" file Backups to dedupe with direct access the jobs start to fail ( ~1.5 TB data, 4.000.000 files) Error category : Backup Media ErrorsError : e00084ec - A backup storage read/write error has occurred.
4.)Remote Agent Installation Issues with international versions. see workaround http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/348459.htm
