Server Keeps 'Disappering' From Backed Up Server List

Created: 01 Nov 2013 | 5 comments

Hello All,

Am using Backup Exec 2012, I back up two servers which have remote agents installed on them. lets call them A & B.         

Server A is backing up well. The issue is i changed the incremantal backup job to run at 9:00 PM but the job still runs at 11:00 PM as earlier set and i notice when i edit the job to run at 9:00 PM is the change is not updated.

Server B is backing up well too. But it does not show on the list of servers! when i reinstalled the agent again it shows up but 'dissappers' again from my list of servers on BackupExec. on the reports i get the reports that the incremental backup jobs are running as set, but i dont why it does not show on my list of servers on BackupExec 2012.

Kindly assist on the two issues above.

Go to the BE installation directory and use BEUtility to repair the BEDB

Is the disappearing server a VM or a physical machine? If it is a VM try backing it up as a physical machine

Would recommend to log a formal support case as your issue may be either one of these ~
