We recently started using Backup Exec 10 for SBS B2D for part of our backup procedure. I'm seeing two issues with this process that I need some clarification on.
First, the byte count in the job monitor is appx 1Gb larger than the byte count on the HD. Compression is set to hdw if available, otherwise none. I do not have verification set on the job due to timing, so I'm not sure if this is a good backup or not!
Second, I am moving the file from the HD to an external HD for storage. I then get a message in the event viewer, "An error occurred while processing a B2D command. Drive: ReadFMTable() CreateFile failed (\\xxx\xxx\DailyBackup\B2D
). Error=2 For more information, click the following link: http://eventlookup.veritas.com/eventlookup/EventLookup.jhtml
" This message is actually referring to the backup I moved, not the "new" one.
We would actually like to write that backup to tape, however, I am concerned about the validity of "backing up" a backup. Some instruction on whether this is feasible or not would be appreciated.
