Backup Exec 2010R3 B2D setup with Synolygy NAS Local and on remote site
I have a customer that is running a B2D setup where BE2010 backup is running to a local Synology 212+ NAS, then it runs a duplicate job to a Synology 212+ on a remote site. It seems there are a few problems with this setup (i didn't make the initial setup/configuration of this solution). The remote Synology seems to get full after a while + when i compare the local Synology contains IMG files as well as B2D files, the remote doesn't - I think thats odd.
I know the first setup of this "replicating" solution was made byt replicating the Synology's with Synology's own sync solution, but that didn't work very well, so thats why the dupe job was created instead.
The backup job are defined as follows:
Mon-thue, BE runs a Diferential Job.
Fri, BE runs Full Job
both configured for Overwrite
13 Days Overwrite protection (customer keeps backup for 14 Days) = 2 Full backups + 10 Diferential Backups.
When i look the Backup-to-disk folders for Local and Remote Synology, they are defined in the same way (except for IP and local folder name :):
Maximum size for backup-to-disk files: 1500 Gb
Maximum number of backup sets per backup-to-disk file: 100
Concurrent jobs for backup-to-disk folder: 1
The above configutation doesn't follow the article "Backup-to-Disk Best Practices" (TECH164267) recommendations, could this be the problem ?
I would think the Max Size should be 4 Gb (default) and Max number of sets should be 14 (since customer needs 14 days of backup), but i might be wrong ?
Any ideas to get this to working optimal, are welcome.
