error in veeam

Post by mstamp » Dec 17, 2009 9:05 pm

I have a test box for veeam called Veeam. I have a backup server running backupexec called backup1. I am trying to do a backup to tape using the command line as per the article. http://ict-freak.nl/2009/08/20/veeam-ba ... ment-10733

however i am getting an error. possibly my command line statement is wrong. "\\backup1\d$\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\bemcmd.exe" -o01 -jveeam

i need to get this up and running before the weekend to fully test. Please help

Thanks.

What happens if you run this command line manually from command line on Veeam Backup server?
I think this won't work, and you need to install and run BackupExec locally.

I am running the script locally on the server Veeam server. that is where i get the error. Backup1 is where the tape drive is attached. hence why i need to try get the script to work. I can't install Veeam on the same server at this point in time. any advice would be great!!!

Mark,

The command line won't work cause your Backup Exec and Veeam Backup and Replication are installed on different machines, if I were on your place probably I would do the following:

1. Trigger the script at post backup job option that creates the file in the shared folder on the Server where Veeam is installed

2. Then I'd also created a sript on the Backup Exec server that checks the presence of that file in the shared folder, you may schedule it to run every 5-10 minutes.

3. As soon as the file is created, it means that the job finished successfully, and then you may trigger your own script to run a BackupExec job to move all files to tape

Here are some examples of how to create the script that checks file presence: PowerShell and VBscript

Thank you!
