ArcServe Issue

I am receiving a truck load of errors AW0004 and AW0300.  I believe they are complaining about MAC files on our SAN.  90% of our users are windows clients, so I can't install the MAC agent.  Does anyone have any ideas about this?

How do I clear the error?  
How can I set AS to ignore the error (other errors I would like to ignore to, like tape changes and compression)

You can exclude these files from being backed up..
check the Arcserve help on how to exclude files/patterns..

I thought of that, but the files need to be backed up.  I think they are actually being backed up (not sure yet, my full that did get them but that was without an agent, and it is the diff's with the agent that are throwing the error, and I do not see the files in the diff backups).  Excluding them from backup is not an option.

This server is static, but the share is dynamic.  the files are several (5-6) layers down, and dynamic

How about if you include the location of the MAC files under "preferred shares" & exclude them from the source selection on the node?

On the ARCserve Manager soure screen, you would find a tab preferred shares, just above "Network" - just type the FQDN path for the MAC files and add it.

My testing shows this may have worked.  What is a "preferred share"  and why does this work better??  I will remake the whole job, and run it tomorrow night.

That's good news.... preferred share backs up data via your network without using the client agent for windows. So there might be a drop in the throughput of just that particular session during backup. Lemme know the status of the full backup.

drop in throughput sounds bad :(  
I am already struggling with troughput, I have moved from Veritas netbackup to ArcServe, and my backups are taking twice as long.  Now my Full backups are taking 6-7 days :(
I have checked all my drivers, and they seem to be fine, and ArcServe is telling me that it must be a network issue.  This is going from bad to worse :(

mmm, lets look at the throughput as a seperate problem. For now, were you able to backup the mac files when added under the "preferred shares"?

Well, did the files get backed up?
