Problems with requester timeout with nbackup
Posted on 1998-11-30
I have two NT 4,0 servers. One of them is equiped with
a HT DAT tape unit. Both the servers are backed-up by
night with an AT daemon. First the local discs are
saved, then the remote discs on the other server via
network. Often there is an error during the backup
of the remote discs. NBackup says that file is corrupted
(it is not) and there is a message in the system log.
The log says that the requester was timed out.
My questions are:
- is this problem with the network (disc..) or
is the only cause the speed of the network vs.
the speed of the tape ? I guess that the network
is to slow for the tape but I am not sure.
- can this be solved with setting of the timeout
parameter of the requester ? Where is this timeout
- would a better backup utility help ? Can you recomend
- if the problem is really a network one, haw can I¨find
