Central Admin Server Feature notes

The following notes detail information about using the Central Admin Server Feature (CAS) with Backup Exec:

  • If scheduled jobs begin to stall, then complete with a status of "Recovered", and then have a status of "On Hold", do the following to fix the issue:

    • On the central administration server or the managed Backup Exec server, click the Backup Exec button, click Configuration and Settings, and then select Backup Exec Settings.

    • In the left pane, click Job Status and Recovery.

    • In the Stalled field, enter 15 minutes.

    • In the Recovered field, enter 45 minutes.

  • In a CAS environment, storage devices may be acquired at a slower rate than in a non-CAS environment. To increase the rate of acquisition, change the DelayBeforeMountTime value to zero in the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Backup Exec For Windows\Backup Exec\Engine\Misc

  • If you perform a rolling upgrade and have updated the central administration server to Backup Exec 16 Feature Pack 2, do not create disk storage on any managed Backup Exec servers that have not been updated yet. You can create disk storage on the managed Backup Exec servers after you upgrade the servers to Backup Exec.
