NW4.11/Arcserve 6.1 problems...

By drallen@povertysolutions ·
We're running NW4.11, included in that where usign Arcserve 6.1 for our backups. Everything was fine til about 2-3 weeks ago. One night the server froze during backup. Not a problem, came in the next day down and restarted the server, no problem. Ever since then however I've been unable to get a backup process to run. I've done DSREPAIR's and VREPAIR's to try to eliminate the error message.

What happens is that the backup process starts, it makes a call to the antiviral program for a virus scan, completes the virus scan then gives an FAT error writing to the Arcserver activity log file. The message is Failed to Open Activity Log, <SERVERNAME>/SYS:Arcserve.6\arch$svr.log. It keeps attempt to access to activity log every few seconds... which of course means no one else is logging in while the server 'sits and spins'. Upon restart I'm able to go into Arcserve management and view the activity log no problem. I really hoped that the Vrepair would resolve the issue but it hasn't. I'm thinking of temporarily disabling the write to activity log piece and running the autopilot tonight just to see what happens. I'd appreciate any thoughts, suggestions, etc.
