To Janeen and Kathy,
We have a Compaq 1850 with 8 Compaq DLT 35/70 drives running
v7.3 build 2575, upgraded from v7.2 then v7.3 2570, experiencing
the same problems when using the BE Agent Accelerator on the
clients. We are backing up numerous servers that are attached
to a Compaq StorageWorks box - around 500GB total. One server
takes about 14 hours to backup without the BEAA. A real
frustrating situation if the job fails at 13 hours and 59
minutes into it.
I've applied every recommended fix from Veritas and have had
no success. There doesn't seem to be any hardware similarities
here that we can attribute it to.
The restarting of the BE Job Engine service will get things
running again.... but again.... these jobs take too long to make
that a workaround. I'm starting to think ArcServe about now....
