In an enviroment of SQL databases in HA, using global clustering between two remote sites  the following Symantec productos are used: Veritas cluster,  Veritas Replicator and Backup Exec 2012.

In order to synchronize the volumes in the remote location it is necesary to generate a block-level backup to tape and send it to there... based on the following article:

How can I do a backup of that type using Backup Exec??

Thanks a lot.

Hi mmeeggaann,

I know that NetBackup has the ability to do RAW/Block Level backups.  I'm not sure that BackupExec has the ability to do a RAW or Block Level backup that VVR needs.  I'm not a BackupExec expert so you might want to ask this question in the BackupExec forum.

Thank you,

thanks Wally. I'm still testing and looking for an alternative using BE2010
