Backup Exec 2010 R3 system state and scratch tape issues
I am having two issues with my daily backup. I am backing up three servers (I'll user 1, 2, and 3 for identification); Server 1 has Backup Exec 2010 r3 installed and Server 2 and Server 3 have the remote agent installed.
The first issue is that when I backup a Server 2, the backup fails on the system state of the server. When I supstitute Server 3 the backup runs perfectly. It only seems to hang on Server 3 I have made sure that the Remote Agent on both Servers 2 and 3 are the same, but I get the same results everytime I add Server 2 to the daily backup. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the agent on Server 2 several times, but the results are the same. I can run a test on the daily backup with all the servers added and it appears to run fine.
The second issue I have is that when my daily backup calls for a scratch tape, I can load one that is assinged to the daily backup pool and it just sits there until I cancel the job. I have let the job sit for basically 24 hours and it just sits there with no sing of backing up anything. I have noticed that it appears to hang on Server 2 system state.
Does anyone have any ideas I can try?
