Our second meeting went very well. It was great to see returning faces as well as new faces at Adesa in Carmel!

19 people attended from 14 different orginizations around the Indianapolis area!

Phil Weingart gave a quick overview of the backup environment at Adesa, touching on design challenges and future projects. We also had two very successful breakout sessions discussing Disaster Recovery and VCB Implementation.

Our next meeting is scheduled for December 8th. Stay tuned for details on time and location!

Attached are the meeting minutes, a copy of Phil's presentation, a write up on Sallie Mae's VCB Implementation, and a VCB Proxy Installation slide show.

Backup Exec Infrastructure Manager (BEIM) utilises the Altiris Notification Server (please see the press release about Altiris 7.0 - and Microsoft SQL database to store data obtained about a Backup Exec configuration. The system discovers and inventories an environment using the Altiris Notification Server (NS) Agent. It can then deploy update or upgrade to your existing Backup Exec Servers and Agents or deploy new customised installations of Backup Exec.
So, say you have a situation where you need to upgrade 15 Backup Exec Servers and 55 Backup Exec Agents, Five Backup Exec 9.1 servers and ten Backup Exec 11d servers protecting 55 remote servers all in need of an upgrade to 12.5. BEIM has automated discovery and inventory technology that enables you to auto-...

I have recently purchased a server on which I installed windows 2008, exchange 2007 and backup exec 12.5d.

I have no problem backing up the stores with the GRT feature; however I cannot restore any individual emails which I previously backed up. The error message I get is
e000848c - Unable to attach to a resource. Make sure that all selected resources exist and are online, and then try again
I followed up the recommendations from the document 306281, no result.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you!

One of the really cool functions of BE is the Granular Recovery Technology (GRT). By the way, anytime you need more information on any aspect of BE please see the Backup Exec for Windows Servers Administrator’s Guide. In fact, don’t take my word for it, download from here: a few tips to help you get the best out of BE’s GRT:

  1. Review the requirements for staging locations in the Administrator’s Guide.
  2. You must use a staging location for GRT-enabled jobs in the following scenarios:
    • You back up to or restore from a volume with file size limitations.
    • You restore granular items from tape.
    • You run an off-host backup job.
  3. You are better off creating a separate backup-to-disk folder specifically for all GRT enabled backup jobs - this really simplifies media management....
