Hello,

i had a fine working Exchange GRT Backup to Disk. Everything worked even single mail restore.
Now imagine what happened during the copy to tape ?

Yes, "Access Denied"
or more detailed:
V-79-57344-33928 - Access is denied.
Access denied to directory .
V-79-57344-766 - Cannot log on to MAPI with the specified credentials. Review the resource credentials for the job, and then run the job again.

Exchange 2007 is on W2KR2 installed.
Media Server BE2010 is on W2K8R2 installed.

Solution was to implement the ipv6 workaround mentioned in
http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/306689.htm

It looks like, as if the media server wants to talk itself with the ipv6 address, which just...

Hello all,

i will describe a specific Problem i had with a german Exchange Server Installation and BE2010

Environment:
Backup Server: Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard German with Backup Exec 2010
Exchange Server: Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard German, Exchange 2007

The Backup Exec Remote Agent was upgraded from 12.5 with a push installation.
Exchange GRT Backup always reported Back that the CDO is too old or not installed.

"V-79-57344-4615 - To support individual mailbox message and folder restores from Information Store backups, you must download and install the Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects package version 06.05.7888 or later on the Exchange 2007 server. This package can be found on the Microsoft web site. "

After lot of research and try and error i found out following....

Prerequesites
1.) Create a temp folder at c:\. if already created empty the temp folder if any storage group folder is present in it.
2.) Remove the folder of RSG from the physical location if exist. For reference/example i attached the snap below for the usual location of RSG physical location.

3.) Create a Recovery Storage Group at destination server(the alternate Exchange server on which you want to restore MailBox),
4.) Right-click the Recovery Storage Group--> Add Database to Recover.  Must not mount the database.  When database mounted, even if it's dismounted, the restore will fail.

Start Restore
1.) Open the Backup, Archive and Restore
2.) "File" menu, select "Specify NetBackup Machines and Policy Type".
3.) Select the NBU Master Server, Source Exchange Server and...

In playing a bit with Media server deduplication in NetBackup 7.0 GA, I have run into an issue where the Storage Server Configuration Wizard comes up with an error during the configuration phase, on Windows:

database system error.
RDSM has encountered an STS error: ioctl failed (2060017)

Here is a screenshot of the wizard in this state:

Storage Server Creation Status... Fail

After reproducing this error a number of times on the same machine (reimaging in between tests), we had some engineers take a look at the system. As it turns out, the NBU 7.0 GA code, during the PD engine configuration, expects that the system is able to ping itself (have self name resolution). Not an unreasonable request, however in this case my host could not ping itself because it had an incorrect hosts file.

As it turns out, patches...

Environment
WIn2003, Exchange2003

Problem
I was not able to restore mailboxes because i was not able to see the Exchange Task button when i right mouse click on the MailBox in the RSG. I was just able to see the HELP button when i click right on the Mailbox in the RSG.

Resolution
I just installed SP2 for exchange. As you can see in the below snap that now the Exchange Task and the Help menu both are available after installing the SP2 for Exchange

A recent survey of IT professionals revealed some startling findings about the state of corporate data management. Due to budget constraints and data overload, it seems many IT departments are engaged in a dicey game of Russian roulette with their company's information.

The survey by Sepaton (a tape library and data deduplication software company) of 400 IT executives responsible for at least 50TB of storage in companies or more than 1000 employees, found that 70 percent of the respondents cited disaster recovery preparedness as their number one goal in 2010. "Given the current state of things, it feels like most organizations are now playing a new form of IT roulette when it comes to disaster recovery," Mike Vizard wrote...

Today i would like to discuss my experience in which i was not able to create the Media Server Deduplication Pool

Environment

NBU7
Win2003 Server R2 64bit

Problem

Actually i was trying to use the deduplication option but i was selecting wrong option.

i wanted to use the deduplication future on the NBU server. i had to select the highlighted option ""Media Server Deduplication Pool"" because i did not have any external pure disk and actually i had a free partition for   ""Media Server Deduplication Pool""  but i was selecting the red highlighted option (Pure Disk Deduplication Pool) which actually was a wrong selection in my scenerio. See the picture for your reference
