BackupExec and my servers
We have one tape loader, connected to the admin server which has backupexec. the academic backup job, which is 140GB, runs in a little under 6 hours and completes without any probs (well, that was after i deselected the windows folder to be backed up, previous guy just selected everything!).
now the admin backup is only about 65GB, but so far its been running for 10 hours and has done about 45GB. I've looked at the job monitor and it's going dead slow. Obviously taking this long isn't good as it means the academic backup doesn't run until about 10hours after its schedule time, making it run during the day.
Exchange is on the admin server and I've noticed that it sometimes slows down when it hits the mailboxes, but surely that wouldn't take it down to this speed.
Could it be if people are using outlook web access that backupexec cant write a file or something, if its open by someone else?
i just want to sort this backup out as it was about may the last time any backups ran successfully!
