Question about Dell PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 DLT Tape Drive

Open Question

With Win 2003 Server and it's NT Backup there is no compression, though in the tasks compression is enabled. After reaching 80GB of data in a backup, the tape comes out and the backup-software asks for the next tape. We use DLT VS160 Tapes from Dell where about 160 GB should be no problem. Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: Backup Problem

80GB is the non compressed and 160GB is fully compressed. Based on my experience youll never get a compression rate of more than 1.5 to 1, so you should expect to get more than 120GB on the tape.

The issue that you are having is that you are using the drivers that either are built into windows or came with the tape drive and not the driver from symantec.

Go into Tools->Wizards->Device Configuration Wizard and follow the step to "Install tape device drivers". This should take care of the compression issue.

BDC for Windows Server 2003

Windows 2003 does not use the PDC/BDC format like the old NT did. They are all just considered DC's now.

Just run dcpromo on the new domain controler and select the option "additional dc to an existing domain". Once that is done, if you are using Active Directory, it will sync up with the other DC.

Windows Data base server

Hi
I did not understand fully why you set the service to manul?
If you must have it manual then you have to find some workaaround solution .
there are two slutions i can think of :
1. create script that run as scheduale task every x minutes the script will check if oracle instance is down and if is down and no backup running at the moment will restart it .
2. whenever instance is down the schedule task that check if instance is up or not will send you some kind of alert (email, SMS) and you will decide if you want to bring the db back up .

hope it helps
Good Luck

Find the drives on the old server back them up via hard drive or cd/s etc get 2003 windows disc and load in onto new server, then copy over files from old server. Then use a program like nero back it up and have your new server copy all info to old server every week or day.
