Backup Exec 12.5 seems to be skipping files when AOFO snapshot is used
I have the following setup;
1 CAS running server 2003 sp2 BE 12.5 Sp2
1 managed media server (server 2008 SP2) BE 12.5 Sp2
1 backup to disk device used by the managed media server
We have 2 policies; full backup and differential backup that we push to the media server.
After allowing both of these backups to complete, I attempted to test a restore from both media sets (differential and full), but it seems that many files are not in the restore list / tree. It seems to have skipped particular directories as I can see 1 directory that has several GB of data missing from the catalogs. In addition to this the total backup byte count is far smaller that it should be 30% as I have analysed the total byte count on the server. we use the AOFO when we backup and I wonder whether this is causing this problem?
Can anybody shed any light on this issue as I have never come accross this issue before?
