Concurrent Operations Registery Key

Created: 01 Apr 2014 • Updated: 01 Apr 2014 | 6 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


I have a problem that my backup server is only doing 1 concurrent backup-to-disk at a time. I changed the option from options>Backup-to-Disk> Concurrent operations to 4 and still it is doing them 1 at a time.

By any chance is there a registery key which I can go and check and arrange it manually since I am suspecting that the problem is that the key is not updated?

Thanks and Regards,

Hello A,

Have you tried to run concurrent jobs after restarting the Backup Exec Services?

Are you running BE 2010 R3? If not, upgrade to this with the latest SP and then push-install your remote agents out. Then try again...

You can run LiveUpdate to get the SP and remote agent updates.

One more question; are you trying to run concurrent jobs of different Remote Servers?

You need to go to the properties of the B2D folder and change the number of concurrent jobs.
