Re: Ask the Expert: File System backups using NetWorker

It would be better if you give an idea about different parallelism used in networker (client/save group /tape sessions) ,It is very confusing to me.

Re: Ask the Expert: File System backups using NetWorker

Can we take  backup of a big file system to different tape drives simultaneously?

Hello nijokjhcl,

yes, it can be achieved dividing save sets at folder level and by leveraging tape/disk device's tar/max sessions value.

Re: Ask the Expert: File System backups using NetWorker

Can you throw some light on slow file system backups?

What could be the possible reasons behind it and how do we troubleshoot it?

Re: Ask the Expert: File System backups using NetWorker

Is it possible to restore a data from one flavor to another flavor? If not, why Networker is called cross-platform architecture.

and Can you explain how we need to use nsr_migration cmd.

After cluster fail over, facing the file backup issue in Windows environment.

Error: "Client_Name: C:\ 88224:save: The base volume for the path [Cluster node path name] is unavailable or offline.  Please ensure all volumes are online for backup operations."

Os type; windows 2008.

Faced the same error in windows 2012 server and 've included the below cmd in save operations tab backup is success but its not working for 2008 OS.

VSS:NSR_SYS_WRITER_WIN32_SERVCOMP_USER=yes

All the VSS writers are running fine and restarted as well. but no luck in 2008 OS.

Re: Ask the Expert: File System backups using NetWorker

Till NMM 2.4, we need to configure the File system backup by using special group. But, I could find in NMM 3 onwards, File system backup is running fine in normal group.  Why the snapshot concept is removed on NMM 3 onwards. Actually, for taking snapshot type backup is faster than normal file group backup. why again EMC has moved into old method of backup.?
