Problems with Backup Exec 2012
Recently I updated to the 2010 version R3.1 to 2012. So far, I am very disappointed with the new version.
Missing functionality previously had with the 2010 version:
-I have scheduled all weekend back up to 10 servers in tape LTO4. What was once a single task now are 10 tasks (one per server). I have several tapes 8 weekly sets (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A for odd months) and (1B, 2B, 3B, 4B for evens months) and 12 sets of monthly tapes. Every week I have to edit all 10 tasks to change the set server tape where I have to perform the backup. It would be useful in the future to make a solution with fewer steps.
-The power of programming tasks execution is lousy. I want to schedule a synthetic task.
Full Copy -> First Sunday of the month
Copy synthetic -> All other Sundays
Incremental -> Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday
The first Sunday of the month, the full backup runs and then runs the synthetic copy. Can not be excluded or set to not run the synthetic backup, which have twice the space at hand. A botched ...
I already called Symantec and they say I can not be excluded.
Does anyone have the same problems and have a solution?
