One of the great features of Enterprise Vault is the ability for it to keep safety copies of data before they are removed from the archiving target. What this means in practice, when it relates to something like email in Microsoft Exchange is that the mail items aren’t removed from Exchange, until after they are ingested into Enterprise Vault AND backed up. This is added level of protection then against data loss, without it, there is always the chance that an email which arrives in a users mailbox today, gets archived this evening (before an Exchange backup takes place) and is then lost forever if the Enterprise Vault system suffers a disaster.
When it comes to the safety copy mechanism it’s a setting which can be configured on the properties of a Vault Store partition as shown below:

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 backups have begun to fail consistently with the following error:
Error bpbrm (pid=16758) db_FLISTsend failed: system call failed (11)

I have found that the directory, /opt/openv/netbackup/db/images, is pegged at 100%. What suggestions might you have to recover from this situation?


Thank you,

Symantec Backup Exec Management Plug-in 1.1 for Kaseya until the recent past was supporting the following Kaseya versions namely Kaseya Server v 6.1 and Kaseya  Server v6.2. The release of Kaseya Server v6.3 in first quarter of this year changed the scenario a bit and the existing plug-in was no longer compatible. However with the release of service pack (SP1) for  Symantec Backup Exec  Management Plug-in 1.1 the wait for Kaseya 6.3 support is finally over. 


So What’s New?

This release of the plug-in includes following new features and capabilities

  • Platform Support for Kaseya Server 6.3
  • Support for Windows Server 2012
  • Support for MS-SQL Server 2012

It is important to understand that the SP1 release of the Symantec Backup Exec Management Plug-in 1.1 for Kaseya is just a platform support release for Kaseya 6.3.The earlier version of the plug-in...
