Low backup rate in Backup Exec 2012

Created: 25 Jan 2014 | 5 comments


For same server, Backup rate in Backup Exec 12 with old tape drive (LTO 2 tape) is 5xx MB / min

After upgraded to Backup Exec 2012 with new tape dirve (LTO 4 tape used), the rate only 360-70 MB / min

Any solution ??

Try tuning your tape drive.  See my document below

...try updating your firmware too. You can do this through HP Library and Tape Tools.

Same HBA?  or did you change from SCSI to SAS?
