As I've struggled my way through this last week on jet lag, limited sleep and caffeine at Symantec's Worldwide Sales and Marketing Conference, two things have struck me. The first is that Backup Exec has a special place in a lot of peoples' hearts. Its roots can be traced back around 30 years and there is a very real passion - among the sales force and pre-sales groups in Symantec, within the channel partner community and among our customers too. We brought themed "Backup Exec Boot Camp" t-shirts and hats to the conference as prizes and throughout the week more and more employees and partners were wearing them - through their own choice. Supporters if you like, but certainly a very loyal following that’s prepared to shout about it from the rooftops. If you want to get one for yourself, look out for the regional Boot Camps we're going to be running around EMEA in the coming weeks and months. Travelling around EMEA, I meet partners who...

I noticed an interesting tweet today from Rachel Dines @Forester. It quoted Carl Meadows @SungardAS. 

 

"Common misconception: cloud solves our sys admin problems. Wrong! Cloud requires more skilled sys admins." 

I have been thinking about this a lot lately as I drive down 101 to Mountain View from SF.  Each day someone gets in a fender bender and traffic continues around them. Sure, life is disrupted but it's par for the course. Sometimes car accidents happen. As I drive south I also pass under SFO. Each day 100s of planes take off. The expectation is that these planes will almost never have an accident. They are piloted by highly trained pilot while the car on 101 is piloted by someone like you and me. 

Cars are like servers.  Planes are like Clouds. 

  • When a plane crashes the media shows up at the scene, the bloggers speculate. Investigators start to look for the...

We have seen some bombastic marketing over the last several months in the data protection space.  One vendor stuffed 26 women in a Mini Cooper, and Veeam called platform proliferation “the next big thing” when they announced intentions to deliver Hyper-V support in December of 2011 – despite it being available for the past three years from Symantec. Let’s cut through noise and look at some of the underlying facts.

Innovative, Established and Proven

•                Over 15,000 companies already leverage Symantec’s Backup Exec for Hyper-V support. What Veeam has announced has been in the market for 3 years with Symantec Backup Exec. 

•                Backup Exec protects over 75,000 virtual...

If you are using barcode labels and a HP tape library, you might be interested in the attached document from HP.   In particular, on page 11, there is a table which specify which suffix denotes which kind of tape.

I have recentely been experiencing a series of errors with Backupexec on my HP Proliant DL380 G5 Servers.

The errors are almost exclusively related to backing up exchange to tape.

I have found the problem to be solved by disabling the "HP WMI Storage Providers" service.

 

The Error code was E00084F9

 

I hope this post helps someone who has been banging their head against a wall as hard as I have!

Edit the job. go to Settings -> Advanced -> Open file backup when Advanced Open File Option is not used.
Change With a lock check box to Without a lock.

How to configure Backup-Disk jobs,media sets & Backup Exec for proper overwriting of backup sets?

Media Overwrite Protection Level: FULL. (From tools --> Options --> Media Management)

Job should start as Overwrite Only. (Backup job properties)

Media Set Configurations:

For daily backups with one week retension: OPP 6 days & AP None

For Weekly backups with a month of retension: OPP 4 weeks & AP None

For Monthly Backups with a Year retension: OPP 360 days (some value less than an year but more than 11 months) & AP None.

With all the above settings, each B2D job will create a separate backup set (.bkf file) and from the starting of second cycle BE starts overwriting the oldest among the recyclable media.

Some of the main differences between Backup Exec and Backup Exec System Recovery:

1) Backup Exec is a backup and restore software, whereas Backup exec System Recovery is a recovery software.

2) BESR can write data only to disks not to tapes, whereas BE can write to both.

3) BE works at file level whereas BESRworks at block level.

4) One of the main features of BESR is dissimilar hardware restore technology. One can perform a Bare Metal Restore of a system with Backup Exec also, but mostly onto a similar hardware.

5) BESR can perform Physical to Virtual conversations, BE cannot.
