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.

4-Oct-2013: NetBackup Admin ran AD GRT backup.
 
5-Oct-2013: Domain Admin moved NBU_User from HQ_Users to HQ_Administrators OU.
 
6-Oct-2013: Domain Admin deleted NBU_User from Active Directory.
 
7-Oct-2013: Now he needed the user back.
 
7-Oct-2013: NetBackup Admin performed AD GRT Restore. The user object did get created again, but without attributes.
