Backup Exec out of memory error when backing up Exchange 2007
Posted on 2008-10-02
We have been receiving errors every time we run our Exchange 2007 Backups. We are backing up the Exchange Information Stores and logs. These jobs have been successfully running for over 6 months. All of a sudden on 9/22 the jobs started failing with the following error.
Unable to complete the operation for the selected resource using the specified options. The following error was returned when opening the Exchange Database file: '-1011 The system is out of memory. '
I noticed the following error on our Exchange 2007 server.
"Information Store (2212) A remote (TCP/IP) based streaming backup was attempted. This functionality has been disabled by default settings."
After doing research I read from many sources that a DWORD value needed to be added to the registry.
I added the key that is described below to the registry and set the value to 1.
Name: Enable Remote Streaming Backup
Value: 0 = default behavior (remote backup disabled); 1 = remote backup enabled
Still No luck. I am still receiving the Out of Memory Error. Included in my troubleshooting steps was a reinstall of the Backup Exec remote Agent and a restart of the server.
What is causing this and what can be done to correct the problem?
