BackupExec & Netapp FAS2040 without NDMP
BackupExec 2012 Version 14.0 Rev 1798 (64 bit) installed on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard SP1 x64 Virtual Machine
NetApp FAS2040 Version 8.0.2
I have a few questions/problems going on with backing up the CIFS shares on our SAN. We are not licensed through Symantec for the NDMP license as of right now thus I followed the solution (http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag...) to install it as a File Server. This worked fine except one thing I noticed is that it takes several minutes to work with it. Anytime I need to edit the backups to make a change to the selections or edit the login credentials it will take 20+ minutes before the selection options become available. When I want to test just one selection login it takes just as long to test all selections. If I make a change in the backup job options and hit OK to save and exit I get an error to "Please specify valid selections." and am forced to wait or exit without saving changes.
The next issue is relating to a failure stating "Checkpoint restart cannot be applied to the restarted backup job. The backup job will not run." even though "Checkpoint restart" option is not enabled... This error linked me to this article which I have triple checked (http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag...)
The domain account that I use for backing up servers has all appropriate permissions to do its job yet I recieve a login error on almost all CIFS shares. There is a CIFS share directory for our compnay file shares and another CIFS share named HOME for redirected My Documents, Desktop items, etc.
There are no problems backing up the HOME directory but forget about the CIFS location. It backs up the first Folder but nothing inside of it or the remaining 20 or so shares. All show a "Snapshot Technology Initialzation failure" and then redirects me to a set of Error Code Lookup results that do not pertain to this issue.
