Yes what a shock I sold a new Windpows Server 2008 with a tape unit in it.
Only to find no NTBACKUP and the new Backup product just does not do Tape.
I have not been seeing this huge change in any press releases
I have hunted around and I cannot find an affordable or practical
replacement for the LTO4 tape backup unit. What else streams at 120MB/s and
stores 1.6TB of data? It needs to be at under $200 a unit and I need at
least 30 backup devices to support the backup program policy in place.
I am for the first time in 28 years in the computer industry having to
source a third party backup tool to backup a server. This is wrong very
I have looked at the advice of many and switched on Remote Storage and
copied teh old NTBACKUP but still cannot backup to tape. Yes Microsoft have
provided a cut down version of NTBACKUP to allow you to restor data from old
2000 and 2003 server backups but it is read only.
Can any one resolve this issue for me - Either tell me how to get NYBACKUP
working or provide another tool from microsoft that will backup these servers.
I am not keen to use third party products and believe that all Operating
systems should come with a basic and practical facility to backup. I do not
consider the new backup practical as it is to costly and does not do Disaster
recovery with of site backup well or affordably
Who else is shocked and confused by the move by Microsoft.
Microsoft could of atleast delivered the old and the new backups in the
system and allowed users to decide what the wanted to use!!!
