Symantec Backup Exec and HP D2D Storageworks 2504
Posted on 2012-09-17
I am about ready to pull my hair out. We are using Backup Exec 2010 and we have 2 HP Storageworks D2D2504i devices. One is G01 the other is G02.
We were using a virtual tape library and decided to switch to NAS. We moved all backups to write to a temporary server. I have clean up/deleted all the tapes and data on the HP D2D devices. I created a Share on each of the devices.
When we run the backups from backup exec to the NAS on the HP D2D devices, the backup stops when it writes about 7 or 8 files to each share. It will sit there loading media/ pause/load media/pause but it never continues.
The HP devices each have a 3 TB capacity, but less that 35 gb is used on each device. Anybody have any idea why the backups stop after writing a certain number of files, even though there is sufficient disk space on the D2D device?
I hope this makes sense. Any help is greatly appreciated
