Backing Up New File Server

I am in desperate need of some help here.

We have deployed a new server into our organisation. We have moved all data files onto it and have come accross a problem with regards to backing it up.

The software is Veritas Backup Exec 10 using a Ultrium LTO2 HP Tape Drive. Now when i run the backup job the system state and what have you backs up without a glich but when it comes to back up the data on the hard drives i get the following error in the job log:

Backup-%SERVERNAME%
Directory  was not found, or could not be accessed.
None of the files or subdirectories contained within will be backed up.
Directory  was not found, or could not be accessed.
None of the files or subdirectories contained within will be backed up.

We are backing up 1 volume and the server can read the data on this volume as it is local so it is not down to permissions also i have tried backing up a single file on the C: only to find that it fails on this aswell.

The tape drive is local to the server so no network issues should get in the way.

I have read a few technotes from veritas but are not specific to our setup, for instance 1 of the tech notes says that this can happen when using DFS, we are not using dfs. Another says that this can happen when backup up multiple volumes when using the AOFO, again we are not using this.

I am donating most of my points to this one so if ya know reply to this ASAP.

Cheers

You say it's not a permissions issue, have you checked to make sure Veritas has Administrative or System rights to the drives?  Perhaps try running it (in Services) with Administrative credentials to test it.  The other alternative would be to add BackupExec's login to both drives with full access.

When you backed up a single file, was the error message exactly the same?

Hi All.

Justclearing this one up.

The solution to this one is to use backup exec 10d. apparently this is something to do with r2.
