Backup exec 11d updating catalog

If this is the first time that Backup Exec (tm) has encountered this media, the media label is also added to the Media view.

If a particular backup job spanned more than one tape, clearing this option also allows you to catalog one of the tapes independently without requiring the other tapes. 10) Run the Catalog job again to rebuild the catalogs, it should complete successfully, if so re-run the restore or backup job.

In some cases where existing catalogs are corrupt or even recreating the catalogs does not help, "Catrebuildindex -r" command can be used to recreate the index.

In case the problem is based in backup to tape jobs, following steps to delete the media from Backup Exec and re-run the catalogs operation on the media is suggested: 1) Right click on the tape/s that is having problems, select "Associate with Media Set" and send it to "Retired Media" media set.

2) Go to "Retired Media" into Media tab from Backup Exec menu and Delete it/them - 3) Stop Backup Exec services 4) Rename “Catalogs” folder to anything other than that, for example "Catalogs_old".

Here are the steps: •Opening a command prompt, typing “cd C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec” and then “catrebuildindex -r” •Looking for “Catrebuildindex.exe” into “C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec” and double click on it, which will start the same process but from that executable file.

An inventory of all drives on startup is recommended if media is often moved between robotic libraries, but Backup Exec may take longer to start.
