Thread: Backup job automatically updated if PC not present?

  1. Backup job automatically updated if PC not present?

    Hello,

    I am running Backup Exec on Windows XP Pro with a Seagate Travan tape drive.

    I am saving data from drives on 5 PCs running Windows XP Pro or Win 98.

    The backup is scheduled to run, unattended, every night.

    I have created the backup job and selected the folders I wish to save on
    each PC.

    If all PCs are connected to the network, the backup works.

    If any PC is not connected to the network, the save works for those PCs
    connected but the backup job is updated to remove the PCs not connected.

    This means the next time the previously unconnected PCs (eg: a laptop) are
    present on the network, they aren't saved because they have been
    automatically removed from the backup job. The backup job needs to be is
    reconfigured to include them again.

    Is there a way to have Backup Exec NOT remove these unconnected PCs from the
    backup job?

    Thanks,
    Glenn

    What version are you using?
    I'm pretty sure that was fixed in 4.81.

    We're using 4.5a.

    Time to upgrade!
