If you're like me, you're in a company that's understaffed and overworked.

If you're like me, you don't like to do more than 3 steps to do something that you have to do repeatedly.

If you're like me, you have a large group of tapes that have been ejected from your library and fallen down the wayside.

If you're like me, you prefer to have a browser way of doing things, but still want to do it from the command-line.

If you're like me, you've tried a "lost media" report and found tapes that were in ScratchPool, but not on that list.

Well, your'e probably not as bad as I am when it comes to changing tapes; I really hate doing them, but it's a necessary evil if you're using tapes.  What I end up with is several containers of tapes that were vaulted and not put into proper containers.  I can easily go through them and look up each tape to see if it's expired, or I can generate a...

Hello Backup Gurus,  I wanted to share my experience with my upgrade a few days ago.  After the upgeade my MSDP diskpool would not come up.  Here are the steps I did to fix the issue.  Hopefully This will help other that may run into this issue.

 

Disk volume is DOWN (status = AdminUp, InternalDown)

 

The command "nbdevconfig -changestate -stype PureDisk -dp <DiskPoolName> -dv PureDiskVolume -state UP"  failed to set state of disk volume to UP.

 

On the MSDP host we found that the deduplication engine (spoold) service was in a stopped state.  The following was seen in <storage path>\log\spoold\spoold.log when attempting to start the service:

 

March 21 08:58:07 ERR [0000000000DF98E0]: 25017: FileCopyA: could not open destination file S:\DEA\data/12198.bin
March 21 08:58:07 ERR [0000000000DF98E0]: 25017: FileMoveA: copy failed
March 21 08:58:...

After reading the ambiguous veritas error code trouble shooting tips on line I realized they all mentioned VSS, but didn't really have a quick fix for the problem. So, I tinkered around and found the following to work pretty much 99% of the time.

Of course, you'll want to validate your configurations as the 1st step of trouble shooting.

In most cases simply starting and stoping the Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service solved the problem, which should be set to manual Start type.

Otherwise, I make sure my the client attributes are set to the settings listed below.

Windows Open File Backup Configurations on Host Server > Client Attributes

-Enable Windows Open File Backups for this Client

-Use Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service VSS

-Global drive snapshots

-Disable Snapshots & continue

 

Enterprise Environment:

Physical and Virtual Servers

Windows 2003 and 2008 r2

Hello everybody:

   When you create or consult an exclude/include list, it is neccesary to know what means all the parameters in these commands for the most efficient exclude/include list creation or search:

 1.- These commands is used too for edit, remotly, the server's bp.conf file, CAUTION¡¡

 2.- For include/exclude list, it's " -i | -e  " options in both parameters.

 3.- Many policies that contains the same client is an usual configuration, so:

              - Identify in which policies is the client/server => to refers each one in the bpsetconfig/bpgetconfig commands, use " -c " option

                * This option refers each entry in the "class" directory used to list all the...

Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced the latest edition of Symantec NetBackup 7.5 to help enterprise organizations overcome their data protection challenges. The current approach to backup modernization offered by other vendors is broken. Data growth has been exponential while backup performance gains thus far have been incremental. At the same time, backup teams are frustrated with missed backup windows and non-integrated solutions for physical and virtual backups, deduplication and snapshots. Ultimately, organizations face a situation where recovery, the end goal of why backups exist, is complex and unnecessarily expensive.

Symantec is delivering a new approach to data protection and introducing NetBackup 7.5 with new options, including NetBackup Accelerator to speed backups by up to 100 times while delivering “Instant Full Recovery” capability, NetBackup Replication Director to integrate NetApp®...
