Veritas Backup Exec 9 backup job fails during scheduled backup with "unable to attatch to one of the drives" but test completes fine
Posted on 2004-08-19
I'm running 3 servers. One is running backup exec 9 server, the other two have the remote agent installed and all are running Windows 2000 server. The server backup exec is installed on was a domain controller. Before yesterday all the backups ran fine. I demoted the server because I moved Active Directory to another server. After that all remote backups started failing with "unable to attach to one of the drives" but the data on the server itself backs up fine. Only the remote server backup attempts cause this error. The backup is running under the domain administrator account. I deleted the old backup job and created a new one. It passes the test but fails during scheduled backup with same error. None of Veritas' suggestions on their site helped. I’m not sure if demoting the server somehow broke backup exec, or if this is somehow a permissions problem. I can browse all of the others servers files fine when I edit or create jobs.
