Symantec backupexec slow to backup exchange 2007 VM
Posted on 2011-10-26
We have a windows 2008 virtual server (VMware) with exchange 2007, datastore is stored on a seperate disk mounted as a raw LUN.
We are using backupexec 2010 on a remote server (windows 2003 ) to backup the server using the backupexec remote agent.
When backing up the server (just a few Gig worth of data) we only get approx 200MB/min
Compared to other Virtual machines and physical servers this is exteramly slow.
The problem occurs when backing up to tape and Disk.
