Veritas BackupExec V 9.0

By James Schroer ·
Has anyone install this product? If so did you up grade from a earlier version on veritas? Which version? Have you looked at any of the new options in V9? I saw they had an Inteligent Disaster Recoveroy option. It sounds great on paper but doesit really work like that? If you have that option I would like to know more. Thanks

Veritas V. 9 user

by corkybenle In reply to Veritas BackupExec V 9.0


I have Veritas V. 9 on my Netware 6.0 server. Somewhat tempermental. Once you get the minor bugs worked out and the updated patches installed, it will work fine. Suggest getting 6 magazine tape system instead of one tape drive...

Bootable disk?

by James Schroer In reply to 8.6 user

Did it have a bootable disk that could also be used on differnt hardware? I can't belive I've over looked it before. And then to hear that someone has it and says it work!!! That's great. The price isn't all that bad either. Thanks.

First IDR is an option, about $400. Next you can create a bootable floppy or CD with the restore routine. You can use it on different hardware but the same limitations apply as moving your HD to another CPU, ie: video, drive controllers, NIC and so on. IDR will restore your last backup state on the existing CPU with minimum of hassel.
