Multihoming and Symantec backup Exec 12
Posted on 2009-07-08
I have various backups that run nightly. I have my servers that are being backed up multihomed on a private 10.10 network with gigabit cards and a gigabit switch. i've accomplished this by only using IP addesses, no WINS and NO DNS entries. The reason for this was If i added all the IP numbers I had a problem with these servers seeing the network - a computer browsing issue. It would cut off my users from all the servers. I've just upgraded to version 12 symantec and I have currently 1 2008 server that i'm backing up (my web server) When i run this backup for my servers that contain SQL databases (my webserver and others) I get a runtime error and it crashes the backupexec service. If I run on the regular network without 10.10 it's fine. So the issue is related to the 10.10 side. In addition I've also noticed that on my 2008 server, the 10.10 nic card has an error authications failed.. I'm wondering if there's a way around this issue???
