Consider the following scenario:
3-Oct-2013: Domain Admin created a new user called NBU_User inside HQ_Users organizational unit (OU). The distinguished name looked like this:
CN=NBU_User,OU=HQ_Users,DC=com,DC=testdomain
 
4-Oct-2013: NetBackup Admin ran AD GRT backup.
 
5-Oct-2013: Domain Admin moved NBU_User from HQ_Users to HQ_Administrators OU.
 
6-Oct-2013: Domain Admin deleted NBU_User from Active Directory.
 
7-Oct-2013: Now he needed the user back.
 
7-Oct-2013: NetBackup Admin performed AD GRT Restore. The user object did get created again, but without attributes. 
 
The restore itself failed:

I wanted to share the latest updates on the new version of CatMan toolset. We have now re-architected the data transfer portion of the tools to make it more resilient and reliable. The version with this feature set is 2.5.4. The main changes are as follows:

  1. Bi-directional communications between the source and target: We now use two ports 9998 and 9999 to communicate between the source and target machines. With this bi-directional communications, both the source and target are in sync with each other and each side knows if there are any failures on the other side.
  2. Multiple Re-tries for data chunks: As you already know that we break the data up into multiple chunks of max 10 GB for each chunk. We have implemented multiple re-tries to make sure that if a chunk fails the first time due to network issues, it will re-send that chunk until it succeeds. If after several re-tries, the chunk fails to tranfer to the...

Even after setting up the credentials properly on each and every front-end servers, app servers, SQL servers and NetBackup's host properties, it is possible that NetBackup still doesn't see the farm topology. This usually manifests in backups failing with status code 200 "scheduler found no backup to run".

If you encounter the above error message:

1. Log in to the primary front-end server (to identify which box, simply launch your SharePoint 2010 Central Administration console and take note of the hostname on the web address).

2. Launch NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore GUI with "Run as administrator".

3. Click "Select for Backup".

4. Let's see whether "Microsoft SharePoint Resources" is listed under All Folders.

If not, do the following:

We’ve pushed the backup performance envelope so that you don’t have to! VMware Backup Benchmarks have been around since 2007 and continue to be an important part of keeping data centers running smoothly.

Tune in to the next installment of our Google+ Hangout Virtual Vision series for a more in-depth discussion and lessons learned from a panel of experts on a best practice framework and performance benchmarks based on VMware’s vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP). We’ll show you how to protect 4 TB of virtual machine data an hour, and prove how easy this can be done with minimal hardware and a small budget.

Tune in and get your questions answered live by our expert panelists during the event by submitting your questions to the hashtag #SYMCHangout or Google+ events page.

Virtual Tape Library (VTL) is software that completely emulates a standard library, the introduction of virtual tape is seamless and transparent to existing tape backup/recovery applications. It uses disk space and represents it as Tape Media. It provides the ability to have the performance of disk, but look like Tapes. It stores data on the disk only.
 
A VTL solution can perform 10-times tape speeds for backups. Speeding up the backups will greatly shrink the backup window, which allows servers to be backed up faster. With existing backups finishing quicker, second- and third-tier servers that have not been backed up in the past may now fit into the backup schedule.
 
They are particularly good if your clients can only produce low throughput of data, as they do not suffer from 'shoe-shining' which damages real Tape drives and Tapes when they are run too slowly. You can then duplicate the images to Tape; this...
