Backup exec updating catalogs
We raised a few queries and the responses were prompt and very helpful.
We would certainly recommend XIA Configuration to anyone looking to automate the production of their server documentation as it has saved us a great deal of effort.
By using change management within XIA Configuration we are faster and more effective in determining causes of certain incidents that occur within the managed infrastructure.
We were so convinced of the value added by XIA Configuration that in addition to using it ourselves we decided to become a reseller for the product for the Dutch market.
This will tell BUE what is in the drive and what backup media files exist.
Then you'd run a catalog against those media files in order to see what actually exists WITHIN those backup media files to be able to restore.
Three have been 'Updating Calalogs" for 12 hours now and the other for a day and a half.We have also found CENTREL Solutions to be fast to develop and implement recommendations, making them a great partner to work with.We have achieved a real efficiency improvement after implementing and using XIA Configuration within our multi client managed services company.This was an issue for us in the previous version of Backup Exec 2010 R3. For instance; in 2012 we had an issue in late July and early December. The full backup runs normally and does not take an extended period of time while updating catalogs. It automates what used to take 2 days in no time at all and it can be run as often as you like.
