We used NetBackup and it worked very well, we have changed to NetVault 7.2 because there were issues with our UNIX system backup on the other UNIX servers.
The Windows interface is very eary to use, just remember you must set up a scr and a bch job. Also the setup of the NetBack environment is critical to everything working. We used a guy called Uys Brandt from NCR to help us.
Thanks for the reply. Our situation is a little bit confusing. We have 6 Teradata nodes and are going to be using 3 Windows servers to back up their data with NBU 5.1. All 3 windows boxes are identical with gigE, with SAN HBA cards also. We have adjusted NBU buffer settings and the ODBC.
The issue is out of our 3 windows boxes, server 1 has about 8x the throughpput of the other 2 servers.
I'm leaning towards a problem with the Teradata Agent running on the Windows boxes 2 & 3. I don't know what settings in the agent can have this kind of affect on throughput. We've done about every kind of test we can think of.
Is there a registry edit that needs to be made we don't know about?
