Adding the Catalogs and Data folders in a BackupExec selection list
We would like to have a way of quickly setting up a new backup server if something happened to the one we currently use, without having to re-build the selection lists, sheduled jobs, and other settings from scratch. From what I found, it appears that the 2 most important folders to backup are Catalogs and Data in the Backup Exec program files ( http://insanelabs.com/misc/backup-exec-transfer-sc... ). We are using Backup Exec 10d on Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition.
I was wondering if we were going to run into locked files or other issues if we simply were to add
C:\Program Files\VERITAS\Backup Exec\NT\Catalogs
C:\Program Files\VERITAS\Backup Exec\NT\Data
to our main current selection list. This is the selection list that's in use for our daily differential, and weekly full backups. Has anyone tried that before? Is there a better way to achieve this goal?
Thank you very much.
