Full Version: Baclup Exec 15 - "Limit Backup Exec to Read-Only Operations"
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
By design (default setting), Backup Exec places "Disk-based storage devices" into Read-Only mode if the Disks have been detached for more than 14-days.

This is not an ideal setting if you rotate a large number of Disks over 30-days or more.
Backups will fail if the Drives have been placed into "Read-Only" mode.

You can increase the time period or disable the feature as follows:

1) Click on the BE Home (Start) button
2) Click on Configuration and Settings
3) Click on Backup Exec Settings
4) Click on Storage
5) Set your desired preference under Disk-based storage devices
