Backup Exec - Backup timing out with 0 Bytes written
Posted on 2005-05-10
I am running Veritas BE 9.1 Rev 4691 on Windows 2000 Server. The backup is for files on the local server only, including MS Exchange DB's. The Device is an HP DLT VS80 with latest drivers and firmware on a new SCSI controller. Compression is turned off for the device as there are a large number of image files in the backup set.
I have set the backup to cancel after 11 hours so that the next day will run as scheduled without having to wait for the previous job to finish. WHEN the job does complete it takes about 10 hours to write approx 50GB. When the job times out BE shows the byte count as zero.
Any ideas what to check?
