Catalog Folder issue on Backup Exec

Created: 15 Nov 2013 | 3 comments

Team,

Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3

Windows 2008

All of sudden I started receiving the below alerts and backups failed in my environment, “an error was encountered writing to the on-disk catalogs”

So I have created a new catalog folder with the help of the article

 “http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH53393

All backups were running successfully and the alerts also stopped,  But now my problem is when I go to restore tab I could not see the old backups.

 

What is the solution to view all the backup in the restore windows??????

Hi,

 

Put the tape in that you want to restore from and catalog it. This will add it back into the BEDB.
 

Thanks!

I have almost 200 tapes, It will be very tough time to perform catalog for all the tapes.

 

Is there any other opition to resolve the issue?
