Restore Problems

By gcunningham ·
I am using Veritas Backup Excec 9.1 on a Netware 6.0 Server, and I can backup but when I restore I get the files, but most have 0 file size.

Has anyone seen that before?
Or know what causes it, or what cures it?

Veritas has been no help.

are you sure your backup is not running and append?

by rschmid In reply to Restore Problems

You need to check and see if your runnig an append backup. if the files do not change between backups it only leaves a marker for where the file belongs.

Are you rolling tapes one for every day (2 week) cycle or one main backup tape (full backup) and appended backups??

The Backup that I am trying to restore from is a full backup.

Job naming

by Oz_Media In reply to are you sure your backup ...

If you are using a single tape, buy a set (1 per day) and name each job specifically, bachup SYS, backup files etc.

Use the verify option to verify the data integrity on the tape after backing up.

Ensure your jobs are titled and indexed properly. Backup exec defaults are horrible.
