Arcserve 15 - method to backup - agent
Posted on 2010-11-10
I am new to using arcserve with a Windows Server. Have used with netware for many years.
What is the proper way to select the server to backup:
1. Via the client agent for the server where it shows the following:
a. drives: C: E: Z:
b. System State
c. CA Arcserve database
d. WMI Writer
2. Network where if you drill down it shows the network shares as listing in the share and storage managment
In netware I would backup NDS and the volumes and it would include the CA database. What does a complete backup of the server that would be used to restore in its entirety. It appears that the equivalent in Windows is via the client agent (even if this is the host server). Is this accurate.
Also, what is a explanation of system state item. Is that a snapshot of the system at a given point in time.
Please explain the client agent view versus the network view of the server.
Also, where is the best way to view what in the netware 11.1 version was the activity log and the complete and daily GPS activity log. I see the history under the job status and a GPS projection log. These appear to be harder to locate and find than on the netware version. Are the items that I see under job status, activity log what is available. It looks similar.
