Veritas Backup Executive 8.6 not doing backup
Posted on 2004-08-24
I am running version 8.6 of Veritas Backup Executive and it tells me that both the Incremental backups fail along with the full backup even though it has run for about 8 hours and says 100%. Also The tape backup we are using is an HP Sure Store thats has 6 tapes loaded in the front and two hidden behind those. Lately when the tapes are changed and the door is shut it doesn't see that the door is shut. So in turn we have to turn the switch off on the front and turn it back on and then it starts to do an inventory of the tapes. Occasionally we have to go as far as to reboot the backup computer. Having to go through this whole process is time consuming but most importantly it makes me think that eventually the backup is going to compltely fail and I can't have that. Any help will be appreciated.
