Backup Exec 9.1 Restores are missing
Posted on 2005-05-03
I have Backup Exec 9.1 with SP2 installed on Windows 2003 Server. I have been doing daily backups (full backups) and everyday I check the status and things are being done fine. However, I went to check the restore to make sure everything was ok and found that some of the backups are not listed in the restore selection list!!!! This is quite disconcerting!!! It has the dates listed from the most recent to the oldest, but some jobs that were successful (and that still show up in the log that exec maintains as successful) are just not there! Anyone have any ideas why this would be? It seems to just skip some here and there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Also in Veritas can you restore from just a tape, or does it have to be stored in it's catalog? I hope all those backups are not useless since they are not showing up in the list?
