ArcserveIT 6.6 for Netware giving media problems

ArcserveIT 6.6 for Netware giving media problems

ArcserveIT 6.6 for Netware giving media problems

Arcserve has been running now for 1 year and yet I still continuously get Media errors when it comes to comparing the backed up data. The strange thing is I rotate my tapes every week and one week a Monday backup will be green but the following week with the same tape I get a media problem. This isn't just on 1 tape and I have even tried new tapes with similar problems, has anyone got any suggestions?

How often do you clean your drives?

RE: ArcserveIT 6.6 for Netware giving media problems

Actually i also got media problem when i doing backup.
After i backup few directories that i choosed. When i try to restore to server then i can't view the individual files.

I choose Media View for Restore.
I have choosed (show all files in directory ) from Option.

However, i still can't view all my directories and files. it only show me a single file.
Did you have facing this problem before?
May i know how do you do the backup setting?
Can you view all the files from your tape before you doing restore?

I would be appreciated if you could reply my question via this e-mail. lim_benedict@hotmail.com

Thank You very Much.

Thanks & Regards,
Benedict Lim

ArcserveIT 6.6 service pack 4 has finally sorted out our problems it took 4 weeks on the phone to computer associates and 3 service packs later we finally have a stable backup system. This just shows what you get if you don't ever give up!!!

RE: ArcserveIT 6.6 for Netware giving media problems

if you buy supported hardware then the backups might work.  ppl who work on this help desk cannot stand muppet customers who blame the software.  There is nothing wrong with arcserve, its just a problem with the person using it
