First, I just want to clarify that MAXTRANSFERSIZE is not a NetBackup-specific code/parameter.

Rather, it's a standard parameter used by Microsoft SQL virtual device (VDI) during backup/restore. Pretty much any backup tool that backs up Microsoft SQL database can use this parameter for tuning purpose. In older NetBackup version, the default value we used was 64KB (the minimum) unless user specified otherwise. Newer NetBackup version (6.5.x, 7.x.x) defaults to 4MB (the maximum) as it improves backup performance and more servers have bigger physical memory. 

The following links should hopefully help you understand the parameter better:

Is your data protection solution vCloud Director AWARE? The introduction of VMware's vCloud Director included a new IaaS offering that layers on top of the existing vSphere product suite. This means yet additional challenges for backup and recovery professionals to work around.

Symantec experts will be addressing this topic on an On Air Google+ Hangout on Wednesday, August 7th.

Tune in to this Bonus Session of our Google+ Hangout Virtual Vision series to learn more about backup and recovery challenges with vCloud Director. Our experts will share how we solve them in one of the largest vCloud Director deployments in the world and discuss the difference between vCD API and VADP in this interactive session.

Get your questions answered live by our expert panelists during the event by submitting your questions to the hashtag #SYMCHangout.

As you may already know, NetBackup Accelerator does not currently support backup to tape. It has to go to OptimizedSynthetic-capable storage units such as NetBackup PureDisk, Cloud storage plug-ins, and qualified OpenStorage devices. 

The NetBackup Accelerator framework however, doesn't extend to duplication, so you can duplicate the image to tape, either manually or automatically via Storage Lifecycle Policy. No extra configuration is necessary and data can be restored from either original copy or duplicate copy as per normal as long as they have not expired.

IDC's new report has shown that NetBackup Appliances experienced a 149.3% growth year over year at the end of Q1 2013. Symantec outpaced both the industry growth (16.3%) and it's competitors (EMC 8.4% and Qunatuum 2.5%). This is excellent news and I'm happy to share the press release here with you all. I want to thank all the partners and their sales team to help position NetBackup Appliances to the customers. Please remember that we have tools and certified partners available to help our customers to migrate their existing NetBackup Catalogs to the NetBackup Appliance masters. This is indeed an exciting time at Symantec!

Hey Guys,

Remember, status 2 popping up while taking SharePoint backups. I bet you must be .. as these are the really frustrating ones.

Some days back i posted about how to set the spswrapper timeout 

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/configuring-spswrapper-timout-registry

Now we can set this value via the tool - sharepoint_check.exe by a single command.

Sharepoint_check.exe -timeout [Value in Seconds]

You shall get the below message.

SPSWrapper Timeout set to X seconds.

You can download the latest version from the below link. This also contains other small fixes.

Hey Guys,

 

Recently I came across a case where the one of our customer was facing an issue on restore of SharePoint List that contained custom columns.

Before

After

I tried reproducing it in house but I could not, then I asked for output of spprobe2010.exe, from the output I could see that the customer has upgraded SharePoint to cumulative pack - 14.0.6134.5000.

I upgraded my SharePoint setup to same cumulative pack and tested again and voila!!! The issue is reproduced at my setup. I investigated further and found that there are some underlying SQL changes in the cumulative pack.

The fix to this has been provided in an ET...
