Backup exec. restore issues

Created: 07 May 2014 • Updated: 13 May 2014 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

The client I was working with yesterday has the latest greatest backup exec. (2012) and the latest greatest symantec endpoint progection 12.1.4013.

I needed to do a restore of a inetpub folder yesterday.

It would not start would give a communication error pretty quickly.

So I disabled the anti-virus on the target system.

The backup would then start and get going for about 5 min. and come to a stop.

The anti-virus still said disabled but I didn't think that was the case.

Cancelled the job then did a re-enalbe and disable of the anti-virus again and again it would start but get so far and stop.

We then ran clean wipe and uninstalled the anti-virus on the target box and removed AV.

The restore then ran no problem.

So do I need a exception of some kind setup?

Seems weird that I can't do a restore with AV still on ?

Thanks

Mike
