I am an overworked sysadmin who is completely disgusted with the quality of tape backup software available today for backing up Win NT/2K servers. We moved from Seagate Backup Exec to Legato Networker because of the extraordinarily long time taken to complete backups. Networker is faster but: (a) Its difficult to figure out whether a backup ran successfully or not (b) Impossible to get reports (c) the restore process is not easy (d)When a backup fails, Networker doesn't clearly tell you the reason due to which a backup failed. (e) Backups fail fairly often.
Would a backup -> disk and backup the backup -> tape be an option for you?
Just me (Sir to you)
just an idea ?
