The term "Backup" means the methods and processes involved to copy computer data (system data as well as application data) to media other than the ones where the data originally live (disk, tape, optical, cloud). "Restore" in turn means the methods and processes involved in data recovery, i. e., bringing back copied computer data to their original location. Backup/Restore primarily serves as a means of protection against data loss, be it due to disaster, corruption or sabotage. It can also be used for recovering data from an earlier point in time and even for cloning machines or applications. There is a wide variety of backup/restore software available, from expensive commercial products to free or open source tools.

Hi experts,
I know this is old NAS server but still needs to support due to some reasons.

NAS Configuration
OS :- Windows storage server 2008 - 64
2 hard drive – RAID 1 configuration for OS (Not Backed up - Want to take backup of this HDs)
12 hard drive – RAID 6 configuration for image backup. (Backed up by tape drive)  

I have failure in one Hard drive (internal OS) and RAID-1 is degraded. To change failed HD i have to open server so before that i want to take backup.   Tried Windows server backup utility to take backup but it is failing on Windows SBS Server 2008 Backup fails  with error code 2155348075 (failed because the Volume Shadow Copy Service operation to create a shadow copy of the volumes being backed up failed with following error code '2155348075.) and VSS (volume shadow copy service error)

We have norton backup exec 2010 for tape backup.

Any idea how to take backup of windows server storage 2008 ? latest Acronis ? or how to resolve standard windows backup error ?

Hi experts

we have vmware servers vsphere 6.0 and VSAN 6.0
 this VSAN cluster has 12 hosts all of them has two 10 GB Ethernet speed
one interface dedicated to VSAN traffic
the second one for other trafics                 and we configured policy for fail over in case one of these two interfaces got issue  

we bought Nexenta store 5.3 and we deployed this Nexenta to work as file server on this VSAN cluster

it works well no issue  but after i configure NDMP backup i noticed the backup so slow  20 MB per send  

and i dont know where the bottle neck

Nexenta appliance has  42 GB memory  it hods now around 10 TB data    12 core CPU

before we use Nexenta we used EMC celerra and it worked so much faster because EMC celerra send NDMP backup directly to our data domain and send the meata data to our backup server.

with Nexenta it is look like Nexenta sent data to backup server then backup server send it to data domain

but even so i thinks till so slow

our backup server EMC networker 8.2

if you need more information pls let me know

kindly advice

I work for an accounting firm, and we are switching from our old password keeper application to a new one. This will be used by around 400 users. Needs to have the ability to share passwords with other users. What password keepers are you using and why?

This is a CRAZY missing file situation that I have no answer for at all!  Maybe someone else does, in which case I tip my cap to you!

On June 22 at 2pm a client of mine saved a Wod doc to their "Client" folder on their Windows 2008 R2 server.  Immediately after this, she opened the folder on her laptop (same machine where she had edited it), right-clicked the Word doc to rename it, and accidentally deleted it instead.  File was created in early May.  She says she last modified it on June 22, so the file in question had been on the server for at least a month.

Short story is when I go to recover it from the Windows Server Backup (of the previous day) it is not there.  Any random search of dates back to the creation date shows that the file she says she has been working on is simply not there on the Windows Server backup.

I have two other backups. One is a Robocopy backup from the server's data drive to the C drive that occurs at midnight every night (no one has network access to the server's C drive).  The Robocopy backup is a copy of files from the data folder to the destination.  It's not a mirror copy.  This means that a file deleted on the data drive does NOT result in a deletion from the backup on the C drive.

The other is a Carbonite backup that is running continuously.  When I log onto their Carbonite account, the file is not there. The folders are there, and many documents. Just not the document she is looking for.

A search of those three backups (Server…

I have plugged in my Seagate 5GB harddrive, installed Seagate Dashboard Backup program. The backup ran as it should. The problem is  when I attempt to run the backup program at a later date. Seagate Dashboard cannot find the USB drive that the external drive is connected to,( it will search through drive letters, but not drive S where the harddrive is connected). I have tried switching USB ports, but the Seagate harddrive is always assigned drive S. The computer sees it fine. The only solution that works, is to uninstall  and reinstall the program.

Hi All,

What’s the impact when taking the backup of Exchange Server (no DAG) with Veeam (VSS aware or Application-Aware Processing enabled) when the server is currently running on Circular logging and the mailbox is being migrated from one server to another ?
More info about the application aware: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/backup_job_vss_application_vm.html?ver=95 

The reason I ask this question is that the migration of the 2TB+ mailbox database is quite slow about 5 GB per hours, which is about 17 days with no backup running on the email server.

Any help and comments would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Experts,

My client is using Symantec Backup Exec 2012

They have three servers to do the backup set at Highest (SQL) , High (Exchange) and Medium (Apps)

All servers are to backup at 11pm everyday. Mon to Thurs (incremental), Friday (Full)

The backup for Exchange and Apps server are successful.

But the SQL server is still running the backup but there is no action.

People,

Can anyone here please shed some light and let me know how to safely enable and configure the built-in NTBackup Utility on my Windows Server 2008 R2 Exchange server?

The D: drive is currently 1.95 TB in size but the disk space is just 2.5% free. [I cannot extend it bigger anymore due to MBR partition]
My Veeam Backup software cannot take backup on this server due to the disk space limitation as in https://www.veeam.com/kb1794

So my goal here is to back it up while I'm migrating the mailboxes to different Exchange Server 2013 SP1 that I have just deployed and built.

Both old and the new Exchange Server Mailbox Database got Circular Logging enabled.

I just need the steps in how to backup Exchange mailbox database safely with no downtime or data loss, since the migration will take 21 days continuously.

I've setup a dual boot, so all in all, it's a 443 gb drive with 77 gb free, I'm backing up the entire drive and was wondering how long it would take the first time so I can have some estimate, furthermore I was a bit lazy so I chose to click "Add a folder" (under backup these folders) and added the entire C drive, however I didn't remove the other folders that were already there that were already IN my user file (which is in C drive) will it backup those files twice?

Hi All,

We have Backup Exec 16 running on Windows 2012 R2, on a Physical server. and the Dedupe Disk is the D:\ drive in the server.
I do Dedupe backup so need to know when backup up the "BACKUP SERVER" which folders to be de-selected!

I've gone through this article https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.000068227 and deselected the "Backup Exec Deduplication Storage " from "Shadow Copy Components" as you can see in the picture below section B.

1) Question is do I still need to deselect the Dedupe folder in D:\ drive "BackupExecDeduplicationStorgaeFolder"  Section A in the picture shown ?

Im bit confused as to whats the difference is here

When running a Windows Backup on an SBS 2011 it fails and I get Event ID:  12344 in the application log:

Description:
Volume Shadow Copy Error: An error 0x00000000c000014d was encountered while Registry Writer was preparing the registry for a shadow copy.

Running: vssadmin list writers

All say no errors except:

Writer name: 'Registry Writer'
   Writer Id: {afbab4a2-367d-4d15-a586-71dbb18f8485}
   Writer Instance Id: {13723119-17f4-4396-877a-fd6d8185f5d7}
   State: [9] Failed
   Last error: Non-retryable error

So how can I approach this? I think there could actually be an issue with the registry file (see backgroud below) Can I check the file or force the backup through?

The server is being retired soon but is carrying a 50 odd Exchange users with 400 Gigs of mail.  I need to get some level of backup running meantime.

Background:
There has been a series of hurdles before getting to this state.  It started when I replaced the server Drives.
It has 2 sets of RAID 1.
Data Volume - cloned successfully to new drives.
System Volume - clone was not successfull.  So I replaced the drives 1 at a time and let it rebuild.
The old System drives both showed reallocated sectors, but no errors or anything concerning.

After that the Windows backup would not run.  It got stuck on Application Exchange Consistency Check.
It took me a long time solve that.  Ended up having to create 2 new Exchange databases and move all the mailboxes off the original database …

Hello everyone,

I have an IBM DS3524 on which one of the logical drive size threshold has exceeded.
I have freed up some space but the alert is still there and the consumed capacity is incorrect.

Is there a way to force it to refresh ? I have searched but I did not managed to find any solution.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Just wondering if it is possible to use the file recovery feature in Windows Server Backup on SBS 2011 with a backup drive from another windows server. In the event that we are unable to restore to dissimilar hardware I would love to know if we are still able to recover a clients data on a test box in the office. How if it is possible would one go about this?

Hi All,

I am currently using DPM server 2016 rollup 2 ( 5.0.322.0 ). I have installed client in non trusted computer and trying to attach the agent getting an error as

Attach protected computer Computer name failed:
Error 32684: Unable to contact the protection agent on server Computer name.
Recommended action: 1) Ensure that the above server name is accessible from the DPM server.
2) Ensure that the protection agent has been installed on the remote server. Also ensure that you have run SetDpmServer.Exe with the -isNonDomainServer option on the protected computer.

I have done the below thing as well.

setdpmserver.exe -dpm servername DPM server -isnondomainserver -username

Hi,

I am having an issue running windows server backup on server 2012 R2 Standard. Each time I run it, it tries to make a shadow copy and shortly after fails.  I have restarted the volume shadow copy service, restarted my server, re-did the backup and even formatted it the backup drive. Nothing seems to be working. I attached an image to show you the error I am getting.  If anyone can help out, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!Error message on Backup Manager
