Backups and media

Created: 03 Feb 2005 • Updated: 23 May 2010 | 4 comments


When you perform a backup it will create a catalog where it says "media created (tape name)" in here you can select what you want to restore or to backup again. (you can make a selection)

Once in a while I see jobs that have backupped a large amount of data in a differential backup but then something went wrong and the job will give an error. How come that I can not see this job catalog for the data it did backup, is this standard behaviour ?

Kindly refer the following steps as mentioned in the technote link given below.

Title:- What is the "Use storage media-based catalogs" option in VERITAS Backup Exec (tm) and what are the effects of clearing this checkbox?


Title:- How to initiate a restore operation from the Media tab in Backup Exec 8.x or 9.x for Windows Servers

We hope this helps. Let us know if the problem still exists and revert back with the error message.
