Veritas B2D folder offline at create
Posted on 2006-10-26
I am running Veritas 10 on Windows 2003 with the following scenario:
Mon, Wed, Fri, I backup our Exchange to B2D Folder "Exchange Data" on the C: drive of the server running the backup.
On Saturday I run an Archive Backup to tape of the folder "Excahnge Data" which deletes the B2D folder at the end of the job.
The following Monday, the Exchange backup "recreates" Exchange Data, but it is always offline, and the job hangs until I manually bring "Excahnge Data" folder online.
My questions are:
Why is the B2D folder offline when the subsequent job cretes it and does anyone know how to prevent this?
If not, is there anyway to automatically bring it online before the subsequent job starts?
If not, is there a way to run the Archive job and delete just the files, not the folders?
I have searched all over Veritas and the Web but everything even remotely close to this problem refers to B@D folders on removeable devices, which is not the case.
