Thread: Slow Backup on volume USERS with TSAFS

  1. Slow Backup on volume USERS with TSAFS

    I'm using Backup EXEC 9.0 for Netware, with TSAFS.NLM on netware 6.5.
    TSA600 return a lot of errors.

    The volume SYS and the other volumes BAcKup to 5000 Ko/min. It's good.
    But the Volume User (on the same server) is very slow: 12 Ko/min
    Users is about 30Go and have a lot of small files.

    Thanks

    Things to consider:

    Disk compression in use on volume?
    Antivirus running on volume?
    Open file manager running on volume?
    Sufficient free space on volume?

    Also take a look at this technote:

  3. Backup exec wont load after netware support pack.

    I have netware 5.1 with support pack 6. Backup exec was working ok until the update. Now when I run bestart I get an error 1050. I have read for the last 2 days on veritas, novell, and google and still have not found the answer. I think it is something with the adaptec controller that the dell powervault 120t autoloader is connected to. (When I type "List storage adaptors" at the console the listing shows the tape autoloader as an unbound device. The closest thing I found is a post on here that said:

    >Enable conlog, and at the console prompt type each of the following three
    >commands:
    >
    >Scan for new devices
    >List devices
    >List storage adaptors
    >
    >Then cut & paste the appropriate sections of console.log in here.

    I have posted the information below in the hopes that someone has run across this problem before.

    It could well be that you need to enable LUN support for the adaptec
    controller driver - if the driver was overwritten with a newer version,
    you might've lost LUN support.

    I take it this the controller it's attached to? What's the MM14C 50? Is
    it a hard disk? Should be seeing both the 120T and the drive(s) under
    this adapter.....what are the drives by the way?
