Backing up System state in Windows Server 2003 using Backup Exec 9.1
Posted on 2004-04-15
I upgraded Backup Exec 9.0 for Windows Server to version 9.1.Prior to this upgrade one of the options available for my backup selections was System state which I selected.
On upgrading to 9.1, I attempted to view the properties of my Backup job.I got following
"System State" selected but not found on server.If server has been upgraded to Windows 2003 or later,remove selection and select shadow copy components to fully protect your server.
I hit YES and now when I view selections for my backup job,
Shadow copy components is selected + Service state but System state is not.
If I select system state the message reappears when I view job properties.
Can you please let me know the correct configuration for Backup Exec on server 2003.I
It is essential to include system state in backup selections??
