I want to share the following simple tip.
This is to query the BE SQL DB(BEDB) for check the file name for the catalog.
This information will not be directly supported by Symantec.
In addition, this feature is not available directly from Backup Exec.
Symantec is not responsible for any issue caused by a use of it as well.

A bank without money is not going to attract any customers. And while it’s unlikely that a sinkhole will suddenly appear and swallow up a vault, there is an important resource in business today that is all too vulnerable: information.

According to the latest State of Information Survey from Symantec, roughly half of an organization’s value can be attributed to the information it is generating and storing. And like the bank that needs to be able to loan out its funds to generate revenue through earning interest, information does companies no good if employees and customers can’t gain access to what they need.

There are a variety of factors that can put business information at risk today. Natural disasters, accidental deletions and malicious outsiders can all be as damaging to the average business as a robbery to a bank. In case disaster does strike, organizations need to know they have a...

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...

The size of the read and write buffers used for the VWware API (VDDK) by Backup Exec can be tuned using the following registry keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Backup Exec For Windows\Backup Exec\Engine\VMware Agent
 
"Enable Buffered Reads"=dword:00000001
"Number of Read Buffers"=dword:00000004
"Size of Read Buffers"=dword:00000400

Don’t customers hate being misled?

I know I do.  Sometimes it can be innocent…you know, like maybe the sales person wasn’t as knowledgeable as he/she could’ve been.  Or perhaps they were new.  In any case, it behooves the customer to do some homework to make sure that they are not being misled, innocently or otherwise.

 

Your homework is done.

I came across a situation recently where a customer said that a vendor told them their solution could do global deduplication the same as Symantec, but cheaper.  My first thought was wow that’s a big deal.  As you may know, Symantec deduplication capabilities built into NetBackup and Backup Exec offer customers the flexibility of leveraging dedupe at the client, server, or target, and can efficiently dedupe across workloads like physical and...

With the ever increasing usage of disk based backup solutions, one of the questions I get asked most often is around the future of tape. There is no doubt that disk offers many benefits over tape, not least restore performance and reliability, combined with some great technical advances like deduplication. That said, does tape still have a place in modern data protection?

Rarely a week passes when I don’t talk to a customer who wants to reduce their reliance on tape. The main challenges customers experience with tape are performance, especially when backing up lots of small files, restore speed, and also reliability issues caused by media volatility and drive failures. Add to that the cost of taking tapes off-site and cycling them back on site each day and it is little wonder many want to try and reduce their reliance on the technology.
 
Disk as a backup technology has been around for many years but, in recent years, has become almost a...
