Exchange 2010 backups - Slow!

Created: 15 Feb 2013 | 3 comments

We run BackupExec 2012 and Exchange 2010.

Trying to backup the server to our De-Duplication storage area on our Equalogic SAN.

I have setup a one off backup job to backup EVERYTHING.

The backup job starts at speeds around 3000 MB/min, but tails off and runs at about 300 MB/min. The backup job is currently on 10hours and has backed up 186GB.

No other backup jobs are running. The backup exec server and the exchange server are not showing as struggling with memory, cpu, network at any point.

Any ideas?

See if this applies - http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag...

If not, at what stage is the backup slow ? Is it during verify or is the schedule conflicting with exchange maintenance ?

The backup is slow, the updating catalog is slow, the whole thing is slow...

support has a beta fix for the Issue mentioned in TECH195675. Please open a case to get this confirmed if thats really this Issue. Also check if browse is slow TECH196756 , that may also be a factor thats slowing down the backup.
