Avamar backup failing

Good afternoon all. Running into an issue that has been occurring for awhile. Doing a file level backup on a sql backup. Windows Server 2003.

The backup errors out with insufficient resources. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

AVS client is installed on the D: drive with 57.7GB free.

SQL backups are on the I: drive with 275GB free.

Re: Avamar backup failing

Hey,

When you backup *.bak files by file system plug-in, you will be encountered the backup error. Backing up .BAK file is failing because of a known limitation as mentioned in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304101

Please apply the solution of http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304101, and use SQL plugin to backup those *.bak files instead.
