Caching/Backing Up Fies URGENT!
Advice needed please - Boss doesnt know this is broken, he wouldnt be happy, cause this is the second time this has gone wrong, so need to fix it ASAP
We have a server that we call CacheServer
This had backup exec 12.5 (I think that was the verison) on it. Has we have backup exec on it we had a scsi card and a tape drive loader connected
Also we had some sort of scripting...
maybe sheculed tasks
I dont know, our support company set this up
Gets annoying how they dont tell you how they set things up.
With this scripting it backed up our files on our domain controllers (We have 4) It nerver backed up the windows folder through or the pagefile. Also done the admin network servers
Looking at the scripting I have found, it used robocopy
The finished result would be two folders, circulum and admin folders, it this it would have the server name, then in that would be the c,e etc of the drives it backed up.
So for example if a studed deleted a folder of work, I could just copy the file from the cacheserver, has long has its not just been made has it would not have had the time to backup/cache the files/folders
Now this server stopped working.... So we had to reload it, luckily we manged to save the batch/script files using a live boot version of linux.
I'll upload these files later, see if you can make sense of how it who have been setup, I sort of get how its done
Now we even had trouble install Server 2008R2 (Was Server 2003R2 before, thought might has well upgrade has well) First I needed to install the raid drivers, before kept saying it wouldnt install on the partition... After few hours of stress, found a simple fix :doh:, just take the usb stick after installing the drivers or plug it in after the setup loads.... After that on the last part of the setup it just crashed and stood till, even left it on all night to see if it would move, nope... Decided to take it to the basic stuff, took out the scsi card, it worked... So scsi card is faulty! So what the bet if we took that out when the server went wrong, we wouldnt have to reload it.
Anyway anyone have any sugguestions how to set this up if you understand what I mean with the setup
Any better way than using robocopy with im gusing sheculed tasks?
Has we reloaded the server we have install Backup Exec 2010, is there any features that does? Never used Backup Exec, so dont really know
Has I said i'll upload the files later, only if the cirtix server all of sudden works, has it just stopped working when I was working logged on it. Or tomorrow when I get into work. Has the files are in my network drive, forgot to copy them onto my stick.
Thanks alot in advance
