Veritas BE 10.0 Differential Backups Event ID 34113

I have Veritas BE version 10.0 running on a virtual 2003 server hosted on 2008 R2 server database edition.

The full backups are working.  

My differential backups were failing and the B2D folder kept on going offline.  Last night I deleted the Differential backups B2D folder on BE, and deleted the changer.cfg file and the folder.cfg file in the Differential backups folder on our NAS.  Then I restarted BE and recreated the Differential backups B2D folder and redirected it to the corresponding folder on the NAS.  However now, about 15 separate bak files were saved in the Differential backups folder on the NAS, and one bak file was saved in the Full backups folder on the NAS.  All those files together constitute last night's Differential backup.  However, it should have only been one bak file and saved in the Differential backups folder.  The event ID I got was 34113.

Please help me solve this.

It sounds like when you recreated the backup to disk folder you allocated the maximum file size (it asks you this question if you use the wizard) if the maximum file size you allocated wasn't big enough for your backup it will just create more files until the backup is complete.

I recommend either recreating the backup to disk folder using the wizard and select "no" when asked if you want to allocate the maximum file size or you can allocate the file size and make it bigger than your backup
(If your backup is 20GB then make the Maximum file size 20GB or bigger)

Hope this helps.

I think that is the solution.  I just changed the maximum file size to 200 GB.  The differentials never get much bigger than 50 GB, but you never know.  I will see in the morning if this resolved my issue.  Thanks.

Thanks. That's exactly what the problem was.  I increased the size to 200 GB just to be sure.
