EV's index alias name/Fully qualified domain name (FQDN) which was created while installing EV is not accessible remotely.
- Review evbackup.xml located in the following default directory on the Enterprise Vault server:
- 32bit C:\Program Files\Symantec\Enterprise Vault\Reports
- 64bit C:\Program Files (x86)\Symantec\Enterprise Vault\Reports
- Check EVs indexes folder location, for the proper NTFS and share permissions
- Right click the folder and select Properties
- Click the security tab
- Ensure the Backup Exec Service Account (BESA) is added and has Full Control privileges. Add if missing.
- Attempt to browse the EV index alias:
- On a remote server: Start - Run - input \\IndexAlias.domain.com\ to attempt to browse
- If unsuccessful, you will need to correct this in DNS
