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 Everyone,
                        i have 2 drives online on my tsm:

tsm: VWARCKDSTSM01>q drive

Library Name     Drive Name       Device Type     On-Line
------------     ------------     -----------     -------------------
LIBTSM           DRIVE1           LTO             Yes
LIBTSM           DRIVE2           LTO             Yes


but when i check the path status, i got this:

tsm: VWARCKDSTSM01>q path

Source Name     Source Type     Destination     Destination     On-Line
                                Name            Type
-----------     -----------     -----------     -----------     ----------
VWARCKDSTS-     SERVER          LIBTSM          LIBRARY         Yes

 M01
VWARCKDSTS-     SERVER          DRIVE2          DRIVE           No



so i tried to bring them back online:

tsm: VWARCKDSTSM01>update path vwarckdstsm01 drive1 srctype=server desttype=drive library=libtsm device=mt9.0.0.0 online=yes

and this is the error message i get:

ANR8444E UPDATE PATH: Library LIBTSM is currently unavailable.
ANS8001I Return code 15.


Please any idea? i need to run a restore ASAP.

Thanks in advance,

My friend says her MacBook locks up when she start using Dropbox. And neither of us like Google, so Google Drive is out.

"Large": 250 MB or so...

What is a good free platform for large file sharing?

I could delete the file after transferred, if there is a cap on the file space permitted...

It needs to work on Windows also, but mainly Mac.

Thanks.

Hi

We have SQL database files on the computer Windows 7 Pro x64. We use Asigra for Cloud Backup. Asigra is using VSS backup. The backup started failing a week ago with the error message:
"The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process." when trying to access .ldf and .mdf files.
I checked the permissions and it is fine. I tried adding exceptions to AVG antivirus but AVG could not access files either.
I used Process Explorer and the files are in use by sqlserv (64 bit) and not sqlserv*32. I checked on another computer we have similar set up and the same backup type and the files over there are not in use by any process.

How can I fix it?
Regards,
Tom

Hi EE,

I have a problem with one of my servers not replicating to an OFF-SITE location. I am able to replicate ON-SITE to the same host without a problem or even to another host in the same environment. Replicating via VPN to our data center give me the following error

"processing configuration Error: The operation is not allowed in the current state."

I would like to add that I am able to replicate a different server from a different location to this same host without any problems via VPN.

Thanks

I did a Veeam Exchange restore and exported the three pst files to the desktop.  I then copied the files to my computer so that I could open them in Outlook 2016.  Unfortunately I get an error message saying "File access is denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file Blah Blah.pst".  

I edited the files and added full permissions for myself and even the "Everyone" group but still get the same message, any ideas please?

Microsoft advises me that backing up a Windows 10 computer to achieve full restore, if required, is best done with an external hard drive that contains an app designed for this purpose.

Experts, please, identify and comment on external hard drives that contain the app.

The external hard drive must be able to store and restore everything needed for Windows 10 to be installed on a new internal hard drive that is a replacement for its predecessor that totally failed.

Thanks

The drive has a System reserved partition of 100 MB and the other partition that has the Windows operating system.

Do you mark the system reserved partition as the boot partition or the partition that actually has the OS?

How do you set these parameters on an OS drive w a reserve partition.

System, Active, Boot, Primary

Right now when I try to boot off of it, it complains it cannot find winloader.exe.

Thanks so much,

Steve

I have a system that I built myself with a GigaByte mother board.

I set the BIOS to have boot order be the USB Thumb Drive and then the CDRom but it just goes right by them into the Windows Boot disk.

I have booted from them before so I believe that they are good but just goes right by them.

I need to boot into Norton Ghost 15 recover to restore my system after a Samsung SSD failure.

I am going to try and build another CD boot disk, Link to good procedure would be awesome.

Is there a utility that can manage the boot or a known good boot iso image that I can download?

See photos of Bios Setting attached.Booting-to-Usb-fails.pdf

Thanks,

Hi,

I have a "used tape" in Tivoli that I checked out about a month ago and would like to re-use or overwirte data on it. When I load using cmd:
Checkin libvol ts3100 search=b checkin=scratch or private waittime=0 it first failed and I checkout again and checkin again and it was successfully checked in. When I do cmd: q libvol the tape is not showing.  How do I make it show as a "Scratch" tape to be used again???

Hello experts,

Am I able to promote a 2012 r2 Storage Server to a domain controller?
I have run into a issue that I have two virtual domain controllers currently over shared storage and they are not serving our domain well at all and are very slow, I need a physical host.  I have one that was purchased as a file server but we are not actually using it for that, it came with 2012 R2 Storage Server.  

Thank you,

Karen

NFR key for Veeam Agent for Linux

Veeam is happy to provide a free NFR license for one year.  It allows for the non‑production use and valid for five workstations and two servers. Veeam Agent for Linux is a simple backup tool for your Linux installations, both on‑premises and in the public cloud.

Hi everyone.
                        i have a recursive error on a daily backup.

06/23/2017 13:24:25 ANS5216E Could not establish a TCP/IP connection with address 'VWSAPASTSMSRV01:1500'. The TCP/IP error is 'Unknown error' (errno = 10061).
06/23/2017 13:24:25 ANS9020E Could not establish a session with a TSM server or client agent.  The TSM return code is -50.

06/23/2017 13:24:31 ANS9020E Could not establish a session with a TSM server or client agent.  The TSM return code is -50.


i think it could be the 1500 port, but  there is no firewall between server and client.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance.

This question may not make sense at all but would like to still give it a go:

what are the risks our EMC VMAX SAN to ransomwares & how are the attacks/
infections likely to occur?

Our MS Exchange's huge partitions are on SAN as well as our servers' database
& applications partitions.  Our PCs/laptops don't use SAN.

I can see the largest malwares & ransomwares being blocked is via our emails
(in thousands or tens of thousands monthly) compared to only a hundred or
less being blocked by endpoint AV & proxy : so how is this translated to our SAN?

A very unique question from our management.

So how do we mitigate ransomwares risks to SAN?  Just by endpoint AV & our
email filtering (which we use Proofpoint which reported tons of ransomwares
& ransomware downloaders being blocked monthly)

We have a user that uses winzip 9 and wanted to know if that apps one can disable the error messages that keeps popping up on certain files being extracted (see pix below for sample).

 2long
Is  there a way to disable this message and leave the winzip extracting without any interruption?

If winzip cannot  do it, any other apps that can read a winzip file and extract it uninterrupted?

We are trying to extract from old Windows backup set data  that we need.   However, we noticed that there are backups with extensions *.bkf and backups that starts with the pc name and subfolder with backups (see  below).

backup
These backups are as far of as 2008 so we are not sure with which windows backup apps was used.

Please advice on restoring these backups in a Windows 10 computer in specific folders.

Last  night we left running a "Create a system image" in our Windows 10 computer (see  below pix).

w10image
This morning we went to disconnect the USB external drive and found that folders were created but no data.  We ran WinDirStat to see the folders contents and only folders were created (see pix below).

 wimage-folders
With the  above said, we have been creating image of various  computers prior last night; when checking their contents, we noticed  same problem,  folders created but  no image data found.

Please advice on,

  • Why the windows backup didn't create the actual image data (if possible)?
  • How to properly create an image of Windows 10 computer?
