Backup Exec 2012 taking forever to backup SQL 2008 DBs
Posted on 2013-06-25
Our SQL database backups have gone from taking < 20 min to complete to several hours. The backup size remains the same, however the transfer rate to our Tandberg tape library has dropped considerably. This is after the backups were failing because of a redundancy check. We since have created a maintenance plan in SQL Management Studio to take care of that issue and also chose to ignore the checks in BE 2012. Now it backs up, but is incredibly slow.
This system is less than 6 months old.
We are a non-profit agency and was able to receive our Backup Exec 2012 software through Tech Soup. Because of this Symantec refuses to support it and will not even sell us support.
Any help will be appreciated.
