MAS90 files "in use, skipped" for backup using Veritas on SBS2003. Hacked, Unauthorized Access, or Glitch?
Posted on 2004-08-20
While running scheduled backup to removable a removable tape, Veritas encountered numerous files that were "skipped, in use." These pertained to our accounting software (MAS90). The weird thing is that there was nobody on any of our networked computers at the time when the backup occured. We are running SBS2003, and all accounts with access to that part of the domain were not active at the time. Is it possible that this is a glitch relating to MAS90?
It may be helpful that twice in the last week, the backup has encountered one file - activate.pvx which it determined was corrupt (could not verify). This occured when I tried running the backup while the software was in use. However, yesterday was the first time that we had the numerous data files which *appeared* to be open at the time of backup.
ANY assistance with this would be appreciated. At this point I am hoping very much that it is a glitch relating to the accounting software. We have a good internet firewall (which I have tested; all ports are in stealth mode). I will check this post often to provide additional info (except of course IPs, etc).
