Hi Guys

Many people and myself many times came through this error

i have also locked the call to symantec and ask on forum , they told me the same.

when i ran the command vssadmin list writers

it gives Microsoft Exchange Writer: Retryable Error

, i have checked many symantec tech notes on it .

and in short i summarised it that we have to reboot the exchange server 

Find the TECH NOTE here

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH181190

 

Cause

This issue is normally caused because the “Microsoft Exchange Writer” is not working properly. You can verify its status with the “vssadmin list writers” command: 

Writer name: 'Microsoft Exchange Writer'
Writer Id: {76fe1ac4-15f7-4bcd-987e-8e1acb462fb7}

Automating Netbackup Installation without user intervention in 7.X  :

As we all know netbackup client installation can be performed using 

1) Install_client_files 

2 ) Or mounting the cdrom and performing installation using ./install .

                    The problem with above two methods is either we have to add client to policy or installation expects response constantly from user . I have a requirement to perform netbackup installation without user intervention .My requirement is to installation netbackup client software on 500 servers as part of baseline even before these are added any domain .  I have achieved this by editing "install" script code providing by netbackup .

    This helped in installing netbackup as part of base line along with OS .

LiveUpdate's task is to keep Backup Exec fit, healthy, and up to date.

Times to run LiveUpdate:

For new installations:

When having issues with Backup Exec

Periodically during scheduled times

When upgrading Backup Exec:

  • Run LiveUpdate following a new installation.

Note: Keep checking for LiveUpdates until LiveUpdate is completely up to date and there isn’t any updates left to install (Reboot as necessary).

  • Run LiveUpdate before and after a Backup Exec upgrade.
  • Schedule LiveUpdate at convenient times when there aren’t any jobs scheduled.  The Backup Exec services are restarted during updates.

Note:  Avoiding SQL Conflicts: When Backup Exec is installed use Backup Exec own inbuilt SQL instance (SQL Express) to host the Backup Exec database.  Do not use a SQL instance that is used in production. When updates are ran...

 Hi 

One of our customer wants to give UNC Path in storage Unit in Netbackup,in absolute path name as shown in below screen shot.

So after giving the UNC path for eg \\<server name>\<Folder name>  , when we ran the policy we got error as follows

Error reading Volume information.STS API failed. 
Status 2060013
no more entries.

 
So we contact Symantec Engineer , He resolved this case by going on to Media Server and  give admin credentials to two services, 
  • NetBackup Client Service
  • NetBackup Remote Manager and Monitor Service

 

 

He also share a TECH Note with us which i will also share in this forum , which ver helpful for Symantec Netbackup Users
