Backup Exec 10d Pointers
I have recently been given the job of administering a BE 10d installation. I would like to ask you good people for your advice and suggestions about any critical updates/fixes I should apply. I would also appreciate it if you could point me in the direction of any good online doco and resources for BE 10d (I have got a copy of the admin guide from the KB).
I would also appreciate if someone could point me towards some info about the difference between the AOFO VSP and the VSS options, and when to use them. One of the first issues I have noticed is an error encountered when backing up the local win2003 system "AOFO: Initialization failure on: "C:". Advanced Open File Option used: Symantec Volume Snapshot Provider (VSP). Snapshot provider error (0xE000851C):...". I have checked that there is enough free space and I have rebooted the system all to no avail so now I want to learn a bit more about the AOFO options that I have available.
Here are the details of the BE installations.
* Backup Exec 10.1 r5629. Updates include SP3 and hotfix 48.
* HP Ultrim 1x8 G2 Autoloader
* Installed on Windows Server 2003 SP2 (fully patched)
* Backing up mostly Windows 2003 Domain Controllers and File Servers
