Backing up remote server 4mb/min max... Backukp Exec 10.1d
Posted on 2006-11-15
I have a remote location connected via a 4mb/min connection and need a backup solution. I currently use backup exec 10.1d and run backups once a week. They typically take about 4 - 5 days to complete - as I am backup up about 23 gb.
This is a Dell 2850 w/ a raid 0/5 setup and has plenty of disc space for local backups. The backup exec client is installed on the remote server. I created backup to disc folders locally and submitted the jobs, but it seems to be transmitting the data to and from now, cutting my througput down to 2mb/min. Any suggestions to make this work?
Another idea I had was to setup the remote server as a secondary backup exec server. I could then backup locally (at full speed) and then transfer to tape once a month or so.
Lastly, we did purchase a replication manager add-on. The intent was to replicate the data across the WAN and then backup from the replicated server. Has anyone tried this approach?
Thanks in advance...
