An account executive I work with recently asked me for two questions to start discussions with his customers on backup and recovery issues.  Limiting this to only two is a challenge so this post is the first two questions I would suggest.
 
Two simple questions to ask yourself (or your customers)
 
1.     How are you positioned for Disaster Recovery?
2.     Do you want to be tape free?
 
Both of these are intertwined with the trends in the data protection space, driven by  Deduplication appliances and replication.
 
Let’s hit the second question first.  Tape has its place for longer term retention.  That has not disappeared for most organizations.  “Cloud” based archiving services are starting to...

Hi,

Recently I have seen a spate of escalations where the Microsoft SharePoint Resources node is not visible in Backup Archive and Restore (BAR) GUI and as a result SharePoint backup fails with Status 2.

Initially I suspected some configuration steps were missing but SharePoint_check.exe came clean and so does our spprobe.exe but the issue still remains.

After investigating the logs from various customers, it was discovered that the process SPSWrapperX.exe, which is responsible for discovering SharePoint topology, is timing out before we could discover the topology and hence we are not seeing the Microsoft SharePoint Resources Node in BAR GUI.

To overcome this problem we can configure a Timeout option in registry for discovering topology.

Create a new Key called “Timeout“ under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veritas\NetBackup\BEDS\Engine\SharePoint\

Then create a REG_DWORD value “gettopology...

In NetBackup 7 monitoring SLP activity has been greatly simplified with the introduction of SLP reports

in OpsCenter which is discussed in more detail later in this document.

It is also possible to get an immediate view of the progress of the SLPs use the Storage Lifecycle Policy

utility command, nbstlutil. This command can be used to spot potential backlog problems before they

build up to unmanageable levels. Two options of the nbstlutil command are particularly useful for

this:

nbstlutil report – this command (which is new in NetBackup 7.1) provides a summary of

incomplete images. This command supports the –storageserver, –mediaserver and –

lifecycle qualifiers to home in on ‗hot spots‘ that may develop into backlog situations and

displays the number of duplication operations in progress (either queued or active) and the total

@BackupMikko | 06 May 2013 | 0 comments

How far along are you on your virtualization journey? Most organizations already have more than half of their systems virtualized and are currently virtualizing their most business critical applications.

Now you are facing the challenge of keeping your ever-expanding virtual environment protected while providing the required service level for the business critical physical systems. Managing two separate isolated environments increases complexity and introduces potential for gaps in the data protection strategy if not carefully planned and implemented.

A poorly planned data protection strategy will not only increase risk to the data but will also consume more storage, restrict your recovery options and increase the time spent managing the environment. This is why it is important to understand the options and pitfalls when building a data protection strategy for virtual and mixed environments.

Host-level Integration and Virtual Machine optimized...

Or maybe this year you didn't get to attend Vision at all?  We've decided to take some of our top non-security Vision sessions and make them available through Google+ Hangouts On Air. Topics will focus on backup and recovery, archiving and eDiscovery, and business continuity and disaster recovery.

Each session will be broadcasted free to give you an opportunity to hear about the technology from the experts, get some insight into the roadmap and futures, and get your questions answered live.

Here's what you should do:

Click on the links in the Google+ Event Page column that corresponds with a session you're interested in.  The link will provide more information about the session, including participants, the date and...
