Sample script to stop dfsr service for a backup job
Posted on 2008-06-19
I'm looking for a sample script to run at the beginning and end of a BE12 backup job that backs up folders in a DFS. I've tried using Symantec's suggested method by selecting the folders under shadow copy componenets and it impacts throughput on other jobs too much. No one can tell me why, but it reduces the throughput by about one-third. Anyway, if I could just stop the dfsr service on the server and start it again when the job completed, it would work. I'm currently doing this with a scheduled task, but I need to run it on the job since the data continues to grow and the time window will expand over time.
Backup exec 12 on server 2003 ent R2.
