Thread: Copy jobs?

  1. Copy jobs?


    HI,

    We are reviewing backup exec 8.6 with a view for purchasing it. Initally
    it looks good - witht the exception of one thing: we are unable to carry
    out a copy job using backup exec to our DR site. Does Backup exec give you
    this function (other backup software such as Arcserve does) - if so how?
    Help and support at veritas not much help.

    Thanks.

    I have not seen 8.6 yet (I have 8.5), but are you saying that there is no
    longer a backup method of 'COPY - Backup files'? There are 6 backup methods
    in 8.5.

    What do you mean by copy?

    Do you mean create a copy of the disk drive on another disk? BENT will not do
    this.
    Do you mean create a copy of a tape (say for on and offsite storage)? BENT
    won't do this either

    If you have multiple tape drives, Veritas will sell you a product called
    RAIDirector that is capable of writing to two drives at the same time.
