Restore to Cold spare - Catalog of backup to disk file is SLOW
We are using backup exec 10.0 to backup and trying to restore to different hardware. We have backed up to external USB drives.
I installed the newest version of BE on the recovery server. Then inventoried the backup drive (176 files) selected all and catalogged the bunch. It appears to be taking 30+ minutes per file. I thought that the catalogs were stored on the backup file an that they should be able to be retrieved very quickly. Am I missing something?
If I have to wait several days just to catalog the files this is not a viable solution.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
