Backup Exec 2012 - Deduplication
This is actually a follow up on my post https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/installing-hotfix-201596-broke-my-system
This case, is still not solved and I guess it has long ago be given up by Symantec support. They are now not responding to any of my mails and I guess its the "Symantech way" of dealing with customers. Dont respond and the problem will go away by itself. Since Symantec does not care much and I'm stuck with Backup Exec 2012 at least for a while longer I've tried a different approach. Installing from scratch on new servers and moving dedup jobs over to the new servers.
I've installed a new CASO server and added the deduplication option following the admin guide. When it comes to the deduplication storage I have read and configured my storage as mendtioned in the "Best practices for Backup Exec 2012 Deduplication Option".
So far so good. But I am experiencing plenty problems even with a clean install. For the new servers, I configured a dedup storage and a plain disk storage. Jobs going to the disk storage seems to work fine. Jobs going to the dedup storage is a whole different story. I can sucessfully run 3-4 jobs before BE2012 reports:
