BE 12.5 giving 84af "...directory not found" type error...
Win Server 2003 Std SP2
MS Exchange 2003
Until recently I was having no problem backing up Exchange to a Backup-to-Disk folder. Then the drive hosting the backup folder failed. I replaced the drive and reconfigured a new Backup-to-Disk folder. Now, the Exchange backup runs, then the verify phase runs, but the backup fails with an error message saying...
error: 0xe00084af - The directory or file was not found, or could not be accessed.
I did a search and found the Symantec document associated with this error...
This doc tells me to disable the junction points and symbolic links options in the Advanced setup tab - BUT if offers NOTHING in the way of an EXPLANATION of these parameters. I'm VERY UNCOMFORTABLE simply switching off a couple of parameters that were enabled during successful backups in the past without knowing more about what I'm doing.
NOTE ALSO that someone else asked for the very same thing back in June of 2012 - AND NO ONE FROM SYMANTEC CAME FORWARD WITH ANY COMMENTS !!!
So will someone please come forward with some additional information?
