Re: Warnings see backup protocol

Hy, i guess, you backed up a windows client and in this case propably without VSS (Volume Shadow Service). Without VSS opened files cannot be backed up. To backup a Windows host wit VSS, edit the properties of a task, switch to tab "Options 1" and add -o vss to the backup options. This step has to b...

Re: Eject tape after backup

Hello, you can eject a tape via sm_notify, which is a shell/cmd script. Just copy the file <sesam-root>/skel/templates/sm_notify(.cmd) into your <sesam-root>/bin/sesam directory and ajust it. On Linux systems you have to remove the hash sign from this line: # unload_tape 2; After Sesam will eject th...

Re: Java error in cli interface

there could be a problem with the global Java version. Execute this command in a Shell
export PATH=/opt/sesam/bin/sesam/:$PATH

and try again to execute the commands.

Re: windows crash

Hy, I think, this is not Sesam problem. You could try to switch the write cache of this device, which is possible via Windows Hardware Manager. Edit the properties of this drive and look at this picture: http://www.itwriting.com/images/quick-removal.gif Try to switch the mode. Also this instruction ...

Hy, as far as I know, Sesam had a problem with groups. If you created a group and added the jobs in there, it was not possible to delete them via GUI.

Re: I cannot backup WinXP client

Hy, is the WinXP machine virtual or physical and do you start more than one backup at the same time from this client, i.e. file backup and system_state? Sometimes the VSS-writer has problems with virtal machines and if you start two backups, which have to do with VSS, this could also be a problem. I...

Re: Data de-duplication?

Hy,

as far as I know, Sesam doesn't support data de-duplication, but file based backups only. It uses the FULL-DIFF or FULL-INC principle.
