BackupExec 2010 R3 won't backup over different interface!
Posted on 2014-11-13
Hi, all! Using BackupExec 2010 R3 on Win2k8 R2 server, trying to back up files from another Win2k8 R2 server (with agent installed) across a separate interface ("VLAN198") thru switch ports specifically set up for that VLAN (198). That specific NIC interface is selected in the BE job properties (Network & Security), both with and without a specific subnet selected (subnet x.y.198.z). Jobs succeeds backing up files on the BackupExec server itself (local files), but fails when attempting to connect to the machine across the 198 subnet (error: Media Server was unable to connect to the remote machine using subnet x.y.198.z on network interface "VLAN198"). Please note that backups work fine thru the default subnet, and have been working perfectly since installation. I'm trying get backups working thru specific interfaces, and keep getting this same error.
Suggestions? I'm sure it's probably something simple that I'm missing.
