Backup Exec taking double time after DLO option used
Posted on 2008-02-06
I have been running Backup Exec 11 for a while now and my normal backup has been taking about 4 and a half hours give or take. When I started using the DLO option to back up 3 units to the file server, the backup now takes about 17 hours to complete. Total increase of size on the file server is only 4 GB. Before the DLO back ups started i was processing 49GB in an hour or so and now i am processing 53GB in 6 +. Verification is also much longer. Backup of the Exchange server has maintained at the same time length. No other equipment changes or software changes have occurred. Running Win2k3 server SP2 on the backup server. And Win2k server SP4 on the File server. Backing up to a Dell PowerVault 124T. Using the Backup Exec Remote Agent.
I know if i don't back up those folders on the file server, my job will decrease back to normal but that seems to be the whole point of using the DLO for the few people who do not save everything on the shared drives. Is there some setting i am missing either on the backup job itself or on the DLO settings?
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
