Hey guys. I am considering changing the backup software that we use at work. It is simply too painful. We are currently using Veritas 7.5. I do have the version 8.6 but I cannot install it in the server that it is suppouse to go, because it tells me I need a different licence (we already paid for the licence and upgrade program)
Anyhow, Veritas tells me the server I am trying to install it has a higher level, so I need a different licence, and so, I need to buy a new one.
So, I decided, GO TO HELL, I look for something else
Anyhow, I know that Veritas is said to be the best for corporate enviroments, but lately I have heard bad things about it. My own complain is that the backup of the workstations halt because it has a limit in the quantity of errors for a job. Which I think is kind of dull, because some worsktation are turned off, some didn't have the remote agent (and it detects as an error) and bla, and I cannot simply update the jobs so it won't fail.
What do you guys recomend?
I was looking for an updated comparison chart of different backup utilities, but I wasn't able to find anything.
It needs to back up Exchange 5.5 too (soon it will be 2003 hopefully) and it wouldn't hurt if it has Oracle database backup ability, but it is not a must (I already do dumps of those databases)
