Here is the envt details
BE 15 running on Windows 2012 R2 with the latest patch on the OS and BE Media Server.
Vmware ESXi 6 with VM running Windows 2012 R2 and BE 15
I am trying to backup a DFS server and getting extremely slow throughput of about 1500 MB/min
Further drilling down I found that the system state backup runs at about 250MB/min which is extremely slow. The data backup for the same server/VM can get me speed of about 3000MB/min.
I am running agent based backups as this DFS server is clustered with a RDM disk hence agentless backup will not work.
Antivirus exclusions for the BE exe has been taken care of and that is not the cause for the slowness. The network is a 1Gb network.
To further narrow down the issue I ran the windows native backup tool (wbadmin) to backup system state and I still get a speed of only 250 MB/min which rules out the backup software as a cause.
This should then make it a OS/DFS issue however does anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed further.
I have checked with the VMware admin and the OS engineer and they dont seem to have any issues with any of their tasks/operations
Few other points to mention
- The 2nd node of the DFS cluster also exhibits similar slowness
- Non DFS VM's system state backup as expected gives better performance
Any suggestions ?

Hi, I have a Backup Exec 15 installed on 2008 R2. No licenses for agents or options. it is just a file server and need to backup the server itself.
When i run the jobs created, it provides the E000847e error saying that the product is not licensed for the operation. but the test run works fine.
Dont know what the problem is. I just need to back up the local server, no remote servers or computers, just the one server that has BE 15 installed on it.
correct me if i am wrong but doesnt the BE installation have an agent for the local machine, if so, why am i facing this issue?
Any help would be appreciated.
PS: i am new to the thing and was stuck with this product
The System Drive backup job (I have had this job for a long, long time) which backs up the C: drive and the System Reserved drive drops the System Reserved drive from the backup job when I start my system in the morning. It doesn't do it every morning, usually every 1-3 days, sometimes longer. This forces me to edit the backup job to add the System Reserved back to the job which then causes the next backup to be a full backup and not an incremental. When this happens, if I do not edit the backup job to include the System Reserved drive, the System Reserved drive does not get backed up, making the backup useless for recovery.
To recap, as an example, what happens is this (note that the System Reserved drive may disappear at any time):
Day 1 (arbitrary): Backup job shows C: and System Reserved drives in the backup. Both are backed up (full or incremental depending on schedule). I turn machine off at nite.
Day 2: Turn machine on. Both drives are highlighted in the Backup Job (Run or Manage Backups Wizard). Both are backed up. I turn machine off at nite.
Day 3: Turn machine on. ONLY the C: drive is highlighted. If I do not edit the job to add the System Reserved drive back, then only the C: drive is backed up. I edit the job to add the System Reserved drive back. Both drives are backed up on schedule, but as a full backup.
NOTE: 1 - 3 or more days may pass before the System Reserved drive is dropped.
HERE'S WHERE THEY ARE OK (You can see where they are both highlighted):
HERE'S AN EXAMPLE OF WHERE THE SYSTEM RESERVED DRIVE DISAPPEARS (NOTE THE DRIVES DESCRIPTION) and ONLY THE C: DRIVE IS NOW HIGHLIGHTED:
ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE SYSTEM RESERVED DRIVE DISAPPEARING FROM THE BACKUP JOB (NOTE THE DRIVES DESCRIPTION HERE):
Can someone please tell me what is causing this and how to fix this. This is a critical problem.
We had a tape library that we deleted from Netbackup and then readded it back in.
Unfortuantely we forgot to move the tape media from the library out of it before we did this.
So now when we try to inventory the tape media in the library it will not allow us to update the volume confiuration as it thinks the media is already in it.
Any ideas how to get around this?
when starting new master server installation on win 2008r2 netbackup 7.6 after inserting the licnse key , choose destination to other path is greyed out, wierd.
it's new VM machine, could be disk wise? windows shows drive letter fine.

We are running BE15 on a MediaServer with Windows 2008 R2 SP1.
The Backups are configured as B2D2T.
Exchange Backups running succesfully first on local Backup2Disk-Device an then afterwards copying to tape.
All BackupSets which Retention Time are expired where successfully deleted from B2D except Exchange Backups.
For expired Exchange Backup Sets there are no existing dependet Backup-Sets ( Incremental or differential).
Though the BE-DLM are not deleting expired Exchange-Backup-Sets.
Every week i must manualy delete the expired Exchange-Backup-Sets.
The specific BackupExec-Configuration for deleting expire Backup-Sets was set.
Can anyone help ?

Is netbackup 22.214.171.124. compatible with Windows 2003 64 bit server
Here i am coming with some sort of confusion in NBU ports betwen backup server and client. it would be great thankful if i get answer for the following questions.
1. Whats are the ports required to be enabled between media server and client?
2. Do we require all the ports like bpcd,vnetd & PBx between each other shoudl be open?
3. we have managed to see PBx is not connecting from client to media server but backups are working fine. if that is the case may i know the reason?
4. client is under firewall but none of te required ports are enabled but backups are working fine. may i know the reason behind this confused methods under firewall?
still lots of questions running in my mind and i will get back to you depneding on the ansers. thanks in advance.
We're backing up SQL 2012 transaction log.
From the activity monitor, i can see that the backup completed successfully.
but the SQL admin said that the disk keep getting full due to the transaction log not being truncated after the backup.
He added that the SQL was configured with AlwaysOnGroup setup.
I look around and found out that AlwaysOnGroup is not yet supported(I'm using netbackup 126.96.36.199).
The backup is pointing to the availibility name.
Is this the reason why the log wasnt truncated after the backup?
Is there any trick to backup the Transaction log if this was caused by the AlwaysOnGroup setup?
Any help is highly appreciated.

NetBackup 7.5 on Solaris.
We back up from data source to VTL and then it gets duplicated to tapes using SLP.
Prior to a duplication job starting, current tape status are:
Tape 1: has images from the previously successful duplications but it is not full
Tape 2: has no image; in scratch pool
Tape 3: has no image; in scratch pool
A duplication job based on SLP is launched and the tapes are used in the order of Tape 1, 2, and 3.
Duplication from VTL to physical tape library uses Tape 1 until it's full. Then it uses Tape 2 and it writes until full as well. Then it uses Tape 3 but in the middile of writing to Tape 3, the duplication job failed for whatever reason (I wonder: Is out-of-tape considered to be a failure?)
At this moment, what happens to Tape 1, 2, and 3 from the "images on media" and catalog's point of view?
My thought is:
For both images on media and in the catalog:
Tape 1: has images on itself from the previously successful backups AND data from this dup job up until it got full; corresponding entries in the catalog are not removed.
Tape 2: has data from this dup job and remain as 'full'; corresponding entries in the catalog are not removed.
Tape 3: has no good data and goes back to the scratch pool; corresponding entries in the catalog are removed.
NetBackup support said because the duplication job has failed, even though Tape 1 and Tape 2 contain data from this dup job, all data on all tapes for this failed dup job are removed from the catalog AND both Tape 2 and Tape 3 go back to the scratch pool while Tape 1 is not be marked full.
If that's the case, before the duplication job fails and I took out Tape1 and 2 because they were full at that moment, Tape 1 and 2 are actually useless even though the contain images on the physical tapes. So catalog and physical media have mismatched information?
What is really happening? Could someone shed some lights on this?
