Symantec B.E. 11d not backing up all selected files on Lotus Notes (Domino 7) Server

When I attempt to backup my Lotus Notes server, the job "completes successfully" after only about 4 GB of data, and leaves numerous selected files untouched. Missed files do not seem to have anything in common, diff types, directories, etc... One specific example is all of my users' mail files (.nsf) are failing to get backed up.

I have no issues backing up my other servers (Netware, various Windows...) and I did not have this problem with my previous Notes server. I have used Backup Exec for the past year, but am not entirely experienced with it because it's always worked in the past... any help would be greatly appreciated.


Server 2k3 SP 1, Domino 7 and Backup Exec 11d.

I had the same exact problem with BE11D and Notes in my last job. I'm afraid I never figured out the reason, but switching to BE10D fixed it.

So if you are unable to find another solution, that might be a last resort?

You can downgrade licenses of BE by the way

Actually, I stumbled upon the fix for this in another thread:

The problem is with the Active File Exclusion feature within BE.

If you add the registry entry provided in the above link and set the value to zero, this problem is alleviated.
