Hello folks,


I am running into this annoying issue and I have had a hard time solving this.

The issue is with Backup Exec 12 running on SBS 2003.

There were no issues with it till these past few months when we started getting the following error after the daily database maintenance


(Server: "SERVERNAME") (Job: "Database Maintenance") Summary of database maintenance activity:

* Performed database consistency check for BEDB database

Maintenance has failed: 10, Dump database failed
Total elapsed time: 00:00:04


One of the links I checked out was this

http://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/database-maintenance-failure

I followed the steps but when it came time to do a repair install I got the following errors

V-225-205
V-225-118

Also I would like to mention that when I try to do a database dump using the BEUtility I get the following error

Error: Database dump to disk failed.

The backups are going fine and I just tried to restore a file and that worked properly too.

Any help would be very much appreciated

Look in the program files\symantec\backup\exec\data folder.
Check the modified dates for bebd.bak and be_dlo.bak.

1. Has the bedb.bak file been modified recently? What's the timestamp?
2. Do you have a be_dlo.bak file? If so DLO is or was installed. Has the modified data of the file recently changed?

Often I've seen bedb.bak been OK, while BE_DLO.bak has not been updated recently. In that case if you don't use the DLO (desktop and Laptop) option, I would uninstall it.
