backupexec file backup really slow after virtualising a file server
We have just virtualised a file server and seen a significant drop in backup speed. It backs up using a backupexec 12.5 client to lto2 via the backupexec master.
The vm is aproximantly 10x slower than the physical configuration.
We've checked network speeds. The vm disk isnt block aligned atthe moment, but we're considering this as a potential factor, but wouldnt expect this to be the total cause.
The odd thing is the vm, hosting esx box (vsphere 4) and storage shows no strain or bottleneck which doesn’t help :-(
Any suggestions on what would be the best way to/ troubleshoot get an answer.....
