Backup Exec Tape Performance Dropped
Posted on 2009-07-08
We moved 5 servers from one server room to another this weekend, everything went well except for now the backup job runs at 111mb/min where it used to run at no less than 900mb/min.
The server in question is a Virtual (ESX3) server running windows server 2003 std, using backup exec 12.5, with an HP Ultrium 3 4-800Gb tape drive. No errors in ESX about the virtual SCSI bus or tape drive or anything. No errors in server 2003 event log to do with this. Was running normally on friday at 900mb/min, after the move, now stuck at 111mb/min.
Any help would be appreciated.
