What task you want to perform? I used SBE 2010R3 & IBM AS 400. I can help
I have a TS 3100 Library, I would like to use it do backup the datas from AS 400 using a Backup Exec.
to perform a backup, you must create a user as400 and the same user with the same password in SBE. Run the job on behalf of this member.
Ev, but do you use any agent ? How BE find the AS400 ?
We do not use any agents for SBE to connect AS400.
I created selection list and selected View Selection Details and filled field path as: \\as400\backup\
Job ended with Exceptions:
Backup- as400V-79-57344-3844 - The media server was unable to connect to the Remote Agent on machine as400.
The media server will use the local agent to try to complete the operation.
V-79-57344-65277 - AOFO: Initialization failure on: "\\as400\backup". Advanced Open File Option used: No.
Remote Agent not detected on as400.
i dont use any agent. I created selection list and filled field (View Selection Details- edit-path) \\as400\backup
Most every shop I've been too that uses iSeries/AS400 uses native backup commands to back itself up. BRMS, etc...
They backup to tape directly, DataDomain VTL, or Protectier.
BackupExec and AS400 shouldn't be in the same sentance. It will NEVER be supported by IBM.
There is an online portal, save yourself the long hold times. Create ticket online, then call in with ticket # in hand :-) http://mysupport.symantec.com "We backup data to restore, we don't backup data just to back it up."
