Linux RH 7.3, Samba 2.2.7a
NT 4.0 SP6 - Backup Exec 8.5
The linux box is running the Backup Exec client for Unix
Occasionally, when doing a backup the entire linux system freezes. I have
to do a hard reboot without a shutdown, etc.
There is 40 plus gigs on the backup, so I dont think a tar and copy would be
I am wondering a couple things here:
1. Is anyone successfull with doing a backup off of linux using BE and the
BE agent for UNIX?
2. Is there a better way to do this? I thought I could be able to connect
to the samba share and pull it off that way, but that doesnt work...
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
