Speeding up Backup to disk over network
As you know... I am running backup exec 2010 R3 with AVVI agent.
Currently we backup VM using AVVI to local disk on the media server and then duplicate to tape.
We are looking to move the backup to disk to a network share on another server.
The media server is multihomed.
I have set up a test job to backup a 20Gb image file to the backup-to-disk folder ( a network share)
this backup job uses about 60% of the network bandwidth
If i take the same file and copy it to the network share using windows copy it uses 100% of the network bandwidth. This 100% use is desirable as the network segment is only being used for this backup purpose.
Any suggestions on how to "make" BE use 100% of the bandwidth?
Currently the "NAS" does not have the windows backup agent installed on it. Would this make any difference? (i expect not as it is not being backed up)
