Thanks Symantec for Backup Exec 2012 ...

Created: 19 Jun 2013 | 3 comments

I didn't need any sleep over the past 43 hours ...

I liked my servers backed up with the VMware agent to be orphaned from the domain on restore ...

I liked my network settings changed on all my restored servers ...

I liked having to sort through stacks of tapes because a failed backup of 1 VM cancels the complete backup job ...

Thank you Symantec for ruining my week ...

...while BE 2012 is a disaster, Symantec are doing something about it. Check the link below for the Beta programme details. It might be worth your while hopping onto it and discussing your issues directly with the Symantec people on this...

@FormanNZ it is so bad to hear that you had a long frustrating time with Backup Exec. I am probabely correct in assuming that nothing worked the way you expected to work. Please let us know if you could be of any assistance so that a situation like this does not happen again.

Hi ForemanNZ

I'm sorry to hear that we are causing sleep deprviation and data problems.  Worthwhile to check out this blog for ways we can get you directly connected to technical support outside of the traditional call to the 800 number.

If I can help you in any way, PM or hit me up at any of the venues in my blog.

Matt
