Backupexec 2012 - partitioning

Created: 12 Nov 2012 • Updated: 19 Nov 2012 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.


When i try to configure partioning on the robotic libary (multiple tape robot) , the backupexec service freezes.  I need to configure partioning because the size of my backup is too big to be backuped on 1 tape, so it has to be spanned on  2tapes.

Does somebody has the same issue of another solution to backup on multiple tapes?

This should work. If you have an AV check and make sure it isn't scanning your BE services or blocking them, and if so, put in exclusions for them.

Also make sure you have SP1a (check the installation notes around this!), and that you're using the BE drivers for your tape library.
