Maybe it's symantecs but the VERITAS is this is not the OpenVision that was NetBackup in the day. If you are a person of Axxion then you may appreciate this announcement concerning the link below.

Global Source-side Deduplication:

The following are the methods of deduplication supported:

          Intelligent deduplication of files

  • Dedupe the entire file for the very first time, that is the very first backup revision of the file will be deduped.
  • If the file changes, then the backup modality automatically switches to “delta mode” from “dedupe mode” for that file, that is, delta will be applied from second revision of the backup file on a particular computer.

           Content aware deduplication of PST

  • Global single instancing (SIS) of the attachments is achieved using content aware deduplication of PST.
  • This feature helps in improving the network usage and optimizes the storage requirements.

Welcome to the first installation in a series of blogs that will detail 12 topics around disaster recovery technology – thus the DRT ;)  These topics will cover industry trends, best practices, and relevant news on the topic that I feel you may also enjoy.

I’ll start with a brief introduction of myself.  My name is Michael Krutikov, and I have been in the IT field for over 14 years; in sales, training, out in the field as a systems consultant and VAR account executive, in product management and now in marketing. Through a constant learning journey that is driven through thousands of meetings with partners and customers, my mission is to deliver solutions for customer’s problems, challenges and goals.

In Backup Exec 2012, if you get the time out error as: 

The request channel timed out while waiting for a reply after 00:09:59.9980000. Increase the timeout value passed to the call to Request or Increase the sendTimeout value on the Binding. The time alloted to this operation may have been  a portion of a longer timeout.

This means, the UI of Backup Exec 2012 has waited for 10 minutes for the underlaying services to reply back.

If you want BE UI to wait for longer time (let us say 20 minutes),

  1. Stop the UI.
  2. Open the file BackupExec.exe.config (located at Program Files/Symantec/Backup Exec)
  3. Replance all the occurrences of 00:10:00 with 00:20:00
  4. Start the UI.
