i have try to use backup exec 11d to do a full backup in VCB proxy, i have backupexec server installed in one server direct connect to tape lib, and other server installed VCB with FC connect to SAN. But i have problem try to run per and post command use UNC address in backup exec or use network drives, does it able to run backup exec and VCB proxy in different server?
or both have to be in the same machines?
by the way i have installed backup exec agents into VCB proxy already.
With a backup exec server it is probally better to make you backup server also vcb proxy. We have installed VCB in combination with 11D. As far is i know backup exec is has some troubles with UNC path in scripting. So to avaoid this install it on the same machine as the backup server.
We´ve installed both tools (VCB and BackupExec 11d) on the same server too. It was working well but for recovery reasons we changed to esxRangerPro.
We are executing a script to backup the required servers and after that, we will write them to a autoloader.
If you want an alternate solution you can take a look at esXpress. It works great with VI3. Their backups run in the virtual space using VBAs ( virtual backup appliances ).
